Format: Paperback
I've just finished both Terminator Omnibuses vol. 1 and vol. 2, and seeing as they're complimentary I'll write a broad review covering both books.

In short: I'm not very impressed. I'm a big fan of the first two films (the less said about the sequels, the better), but the plotting in these stories is all over the place, and rarely consistent with Cameron's original vision. For instance, the first story in Vol. 1 details a Resistance cell and a quartet of Terminators going back in time to the wake of the first film's events to prevent and ensure Skynet's creation respectively; however, a panel states it's '1990s Los Angeles' - at least six years after the first film's events! Similarly, in Vol. 2 it's detailed that Sarah Connor gave birth in October 1984, which not only would have made John Connor four months premature, but conflicts with the information the T-1000 looks up after his first appearance in the second film, which says John Connor was born in 1985. Further, there's a story which takes place on the Millennium eve (bearing in mind Judgement Day was supposed to be August 29th 1997), and yet John Connor is unaware of the future and pretty much manages to take a Terminator out alone. Maybe if you're less pedantic than I you could overlook these issues, but they come thick and fast.

And besides the inconsistencies and plot flaws, the stories are generally not very well written. The Terminator machines are not generally known for their subtlety, but they use deception and discretion when possible, and yet here there's barely a hint of that, as they consistently go in all guns blazing and consistently fail in their objectives.

Great addition to the original movie 6 Dec 2008
By C. Madden - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The stories in this volume follow the original movie and are top notch. Nothing against Arnold, but it was nice to read some terminator stories not centered around his character(s). Not too heavy on social commentary like Dark Horse's Aliens comics, but there is plenty of action and it was a fun read.

Surprised 5 Aug 2008
By Jeremy M. Helmke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was nicely surprised at how good these stories were in this omnibus. If your a fan of the movies, Dark Horse really provides alot of extra in this volume. Not to mention for the price you get alot of TPB.

Only if your a big Terminator fan, and only if it's cheap 7 April 2010
By D. Horvitz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I bought this at Emerald City Con (Comic book convention in Seattle), just because I'm a big Terminator fan and it only cost me $15, and I think I got my moneys worth on it. The story is different on its own level, where Sarah and John Conner aren't a main focus, which is weird but fascinating at the same time, so it allows for a whole new sense of creativity for characters and a story.
The art is done by various artist, and each chapter is written by different writers, so it's unique in that way, however can cause big trouble for how the plot goes, and character development.
All in all, some parts of it get boring, a little to out there in some parts of the story, each chapter was very well drawn, but it only caught my interest for so long. And it feels a little bit like extremely well done fan fiction, keywords "extremely well." So I would recommend it, if you can find it under it's original value, and only if your a huge Terminator fan
I used to read these comics 14 Mar 2014

I used to go downtown to the comic shop and buy these.

it's what I remember from my childhood, so that's cool.
Not so great. 12 Jan 2014
By EE - Published on Amazon.com

Other than the first story, which really takes too many liberties with the Cameron storyline, I thought the rest of these felt rushed and the artwork varied greatly. Loved the Paul Gulacy, but the constant return of terminators to the past gets boring. I also felt that the lead character from the first story, the only survivor of the first team other than the half terminator, wasn't handled well. At first she was a die-hard fighter, then she got too, well, womanly, and lost her edge. The one shot story about a wrong Sarah Connor being targeted for termination, I didn't care for when it first came out, and the later stories were just too much rehashing of ideas already touched on.
