J Michael Straczynski on his new ‘Terminator’ comic from Dark Horse
J Michael Straczynski is to write a new ‘Teminator’ comic book series for Dark Horse comics, which is to be titled Terminator: The Last Battle.
The Babylon 5 creator and Before Watchmen writer will write the new 12 issue comic book series from Dark Horse.
‘Terminator: The Last Battle’ will be illustrated by Pete Woods and is set following the events of Terminator Salvation.
It will also investigate the development of Skynet from the moment it became self-aware in 1997.
“The story that I’ve always wanted to see visualised, and that I think other fans of the movies have eagerly anticipated, is the battle that set all of the movies into motion – the assault on Skynet, the Terminators going through and what happens afterwards on both sides of the timeline,” Straczynski told Comic Book Resources.
“So the events weave in and out of the tapestry of the Terminator, showing what we know or what we think we know, then turning the camera around to show us that what we thought we knew may not be exactly what happens. The only timeline in which you could set that story would be after Salvation.”
Zack Whedon worked on Dark Horse’s previous Terminator ongoing in 2010.
Terminator 5, which is rumored to be a reboot of the movies is scheduled for release in 2015 with Arnold Schwarzenegger returning to the franchise.
Terminator: The Last Battle is yet to announce a release date.
