Notes from the Terminator chronology


This mini-series jumps around in time. From 2033, where Skynet has been all but defeated and sends the T-Infinity prototype temporal Terminator to correct all divergent time paths, to 2009, with John Connor emerging from the Crystal Peak bunker.


Didja Notice?


On the Stjepan Sejic cover of this issue, a resistance fighter is wearing a Terminator skull as a shoulder guard.


The number of passenger windows on the resistance school bus changes throughout this issue and later ones, varying from 8, to 9, to 12.


On page 1, the L.A. resistance cell is fleeing to Albuquerque, NM, avoiding Interstate 40, choked with automotive carcasses. Interstate 40 is a real world freeway system which begins its western end in Barstow, CA and passes through Albuquerque, continuing to North Carolina.


On page 2, the resistance convoy stops at an old Christian radio broadcast station in Albuquerque, Epiphany 107.7 FM. This appears to be a fictitious radio station.


On page 5, one of the potential appropriate responses to Buzz's disgruntlement displayed on Uncle Bob's POV display is "No problemo," a phrase taught to the protector T-800 by John in Judgment Day.


Page 7 indicates that John has been with the resistance cell for seven days and they are already looking to him for leadership.


Page 8 indicates that the Skynet hub in 2033 is near Dismal River, Nebraska. This is an actual river in that state.


On page 14, panel 1, the resistance semi-truck appears to have a pair of fuzzy dice hanging from the rearview mirror. The hanging of fuzzy dice from the rear-view mirror of an automobile was popular in the U.S. from the 1950s-80s.


On page 19, the semi crashes into an old cafe called Milly's Grill. This appears to be a fictitious establishment in the Albuquerque area.
