J. Michael Straczynski and Pete Woods have been announced as the creative team for a twelve-part Terminator series at Dark Horse, which will continue the story of the films and follow on from Terminator: Salvation. Titled Terminator: The Final Battle, the series will start later this year.
This twelve-issue series will be set during the time of the Christian Bale-era John Connor, and it looks like JMS will be taking a closer look at Skynet’s perspective on events. The announcement is another one of those slightly-vague interviews which doesn’t pinpoint what the actual story and premise of the book will be, though JMS indicates that it features John Connor and Skynet fighting each other directly.
That’d be a battle which I believe Terminator 3 predicted wouldn’t end brilliantly for John, exactly…
This marks another twelve-issue storyline for JMS, following Superman: Grounded, Wonder Woman: The Odyssey, and The Twelve. Best of luck, Terminator fans.
