I am a fan of the Terminator movies but it seems not so much of the comic run. I liked the art of the second story and that's about it. The panels were generic. If someone was naked (this is the Terminator universe afterall, what with the timetravel running amok), then the muscles were exagerrated way too much. All undercover Terminator agents stuck out like sore thumbs instead of blending in since they appear as massively muscled body builders, even the females. That makes sense, right?

This book came out at just the right time - I finally watched T3 last year, and found out it wasn't half as bad as I'd feared, and then this year watched and adored the Terminator tv series, which finished all too soon as a result of the writers' strike.

While Dark Horse went on to do some great Star Wars Stories, the Terminator started out good and went down hill from there. Some of the stories ignore established continuity (I don't believe there were more than one time displacement unit), others are either poorly drawn or written. The first arc is the best. DH's Predator series was better.

Dark horse comics is literally the dark horse. The quality is quite good for a publication which extends popular sci-fi movies to the comics world. I didn't expect this volume to be as good as it was while reading. The writing in all the chapters is filled with suspense, action and a non-linear narration going back to past and future. The dread associated to the terminators is there in each page and it was a fun read.
Entertaining stories set in the Terminator universe. None of them stand out significantly, but they are certainly entertaining, and after finishing them, I wanted to read more of them.

I think this comic collection can best be described by the word MEH.
