Terminator: Enemy of My Enemy #4 sees Farrow and the Terminator teaming up to rescue Elise from the clutches of the creepy mercenary group that kidnapped her. It opens with the most awkward car ride ever, which I loved, and I’m curious about how their relationship will unfold. I still find it weird that the Terminator, supposedly a T-800, looks nothing like Arnold Schwarzenegger, but maybe Cyberdyne is making tweaks in the mode; I’m not 100% sure where this falls in the movie timeline. The artwork is otherwise comparable to the other issues, with some fun panels (especially on page ten, which made me giggle, and thirteen, which is badass). The action scenes in this series have been quite good, with lots of movement and noise conveyed well (KRASHH). If you’re looking for a deep plot, look elsewhere, but if you wanna see a lot of stuff blow up, you’re in the right spot.
This issue ends on a terrible cliffhanger! There are two comics left in this mini-series, and I can’t wait until they’re released! I’m liking this series a lot more than I thought I would at the beginning, when I was totally lost.
“When a mercenary army with sinister motives joins the hunt for Dr. Elise Fong, ex-CIA operative Farrow Greene is no longer sure if she’s Fong’s kidnapper or rescuer! Meanwhile, a tireless, merciless Terminator remains intent on murdering Fong before anyone else can learn her secrets!”
