Okay, so yes the past two ‘TERMINATOR’ films have pretty much failed everyone on an epic scale. (Here’s looking at you terribly CGI rendered Govinator) But just because they have dashed fans hopes and broken all faith in the classic franchise doesn’t mean we can’t give them another chance, right? Right? That is what Dark Horse Publishing is hoping as they look to drop the first issue of “TERMINATOR: 2029” tomorrow, and to get fans reinvigorated they have provided them with a 5 page preview. Read on and judge for yourself. “In a post-apocalyptic 2029, artificially intelligent machines seek to exterminate what is left of the human race. Two beings from this era are transported back in time to 1984 Los Angeles: one is a Terminator (Arnold Schwarzenegger), a cyborg assassin programmed to kill Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton). The other is Kyle Reese (Michael Biehn), a human resistance fighter sent to protect her. The Terminator stalks Sarah by killing all of the Sarah Connors listed in the telephone directory one by one. Hearing of the “phone book killer”, Sarah seeks shelter in a nightclub and phones her roommate to warn her, leaving a message on their answering machine indicating her whereabouts. However, the Terminator has already killed her roommate and tracks Sarah to the nightclub after hearing her message. Kyle also tracks Sarah to the club and saves her from the Terminator’s attack.”
“The year is 2029. It’s the year that John Connor, leader of the Resistance, sends Kyle Reese to 1984 to save Sarah Connor from a T-800 with a grudge.
But before all of that happened, Kyle Reese was just another man fighting to survive in a world overrun by a technology that had taken on a life of its own and annihilated civilization.
Who was Kyle before he met John Connor and was thrust through time to face off with a T-800 and fall for a waitress with a destiny? And who were his comrades in arms?
In this three-issue series we’ll meet Kyle Reese and his closest allies as they take on T-600s, T-800s, and HKs, in a world where there is little in the way of food, water, or hope.”
