The Terminator: Enemy of My Enemy #6 Review

Does this constitute mission failure or success? Read on to find out.

The official description from Dark Horse:

Betrayed by humanity and battered by a machine, ex-CIA operative Farrow Greene engages in the final showdown with her new and old enemies! Greene must put it all on the line in order to preserve the life of biologist Elise Fong, but can her skills match the T-800’s raw, tireless brutality?

The Terminator-Enemy of My Enemy 6_Preview PageThere’s a lot to be admired within this mini-series as an immensely talented creative team continues their final act. Along the way we’ve seen a to the point adventure set squarely in the 80s in the best ways possible. So if you grew up back then or became a fan in the 90s there’s no doubt in my mind that you’ll enjoy what happens in this.

Let’s be honest thes script by Dan Jolley embraces its role as an over the top action romp, but it also attacks the core device that’s made the Terminator franchise one that’s worth being remembered. The struggle against man and machine. And in that context, despite some minor moments where I felt the written word offered up rocky dialogue, I still walked away with enthusiasm. It was a finish that felt like the right way to leave the world, at least for now, of Farrow Greene.

I have to say that the art by Jamal Igle can be, at times, overly simplistic while on other occasions it offers a wealth of detail that perfectly suits the text it supports. The entire book enjoys a fitting display that makes use of its varied landscapes as the endoskeleton rampages its way toward a bloody good confrontation. And when the colors by Wes Dzioba get added in the visuals feel complete, despite any minor moments that didn’t quite wow me. In short: it’s not perfect but it did right by the saga.

The Terminator: Enemy of My Enemy #6 is a fitting conclusion that understood what it needed to do. So by all means if you’re a franchise fan there’s absolutely no reason why you should avoid this. Recommended.
