Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:
The staff of Fanboy Comics warned you that this day would come. In fact, we traveled through time on August 4th to tell you about the activation of Skynet. And now, prepare to welcome our new computer overlords; it is Judgment Day.
Judgment Day, also known as J-Day, refers to the day in the Terminator film that the artificial intelligence Skynet became self aware and started a nuclear strike on America, Russia, and other regions, killing three billion people. Due to the effects of time travel, as well as several film, TV, and novel adaptations of the Terminator story, the month, day, and year of Judgment Day has varied over the years.
Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) first learned about Judgment Day in 1984 from Kyle Reese (Michael Biehn), a soldier sent from the future to protect her from an assassination by a Terminator (Arnold Schwarzenegger).
On this special day, we accept that our world will be taken over by a computer-based race of machines, but that is no reason to be down in the dumps. Until the machines arrive, celebrate today’s other important occasion: Fanboy Comics Contributor J.C. Ciesielski’s birthday!
Happy Birthday, J.C., from all of us at Fanboy Comics!
