The human resistance dealt a major blow to Skynet in the 2009 movie Terminator Salvation, but the war wasn't over. The saga continues in Dark Horse's sequel series The Last Battle, written by J. Michael Straczynski, where John Connor leads a desperate final battle in which he may pay the ultimate price. Spoilers ahead!
Oh, did I say "may" pay the ultimate price? I mean "will."
The cover of Terminator Salvation: The Final Battle #11 will most definitely feature the death of resistance leader John Connor. Can Skynet be beaten without him? Can humanity survive? You'll have to wait until December, when the 12th and final issue of the series arrives to find out.
However, if you haven't checked out this series yet, io9 is incredibly excited to offer you the chance to read the first two issues of Terminator Salvation: The Final Battle in their entirety!
