In 1984, Kyle Reese protected Sarah Connor from a cyborg that would stop at nothing to terminate her. In 1985, Skynet targets a scientist whose discoveries threaten its future, but this time there is no resistance fighter sent back to face it! With only enemies around her, what chance does Elise Fong stand against the perfect killing machine?

    If you like sci-fi at all, or, honestly, if you just like competently-executed comic books, give this one a shot. Terminator: Enemy of My Enemy #1 from Dark Horse is well worth making a spot for in your comics budget. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - James Anders II Feb 19, 2014

    In the past the Terminator brand has had some missteps both in movie form and comic. Dark Horse has put a recommitment to the franchise however and they are bringing it. With the Terminator Salvation: The Final Battle story (See Review) and now this one, I have renewed and continued high hopes in this extremely good iconic storyline continuing in a positive direction.

    Hulking Reviewer - Kareem Ali Feb 19, 2014

    Terminator: Enemy of my Enemy #1 is an ok start to the series although the potential in the premise remains intriguing due to the developments in the last few panels as opposed to the story development throughout the entire issue. Farrow Greene is an interesting character and her actions and current situation hold the story together in this issue since Elise Fong barely has a presence. The action was entertaining but I hope to see at the very least some hints to what makes Elise Fong so vital and such a huge threat to Skynet going forward. Read Full Review

    Nerds On The Rocks - Frank Lanza Feb 20, 2014

    Back in the 80"s there weren't many things more terrifying and intimidating than the relentless cold blooded mechanical killing machine that was the Terminator. So far, I'm not sure if the The Enemy of My Enemy is trying to capture that or put a new spin on the old tale, but I like the start and the fact it's accessible to anyone. I'll give it a few more reads to determine if "I'll be back" or not. I'm sorry, you had to know that one was coming. Hasta la vista! Read Full Review

    Fortress of Solitude - Byron Hendricks Feb 24, 2014

    This is a good read, but it showcases nothing that we have not come to expect of the Terminator franchise. T-800s chasing unknowledgeable victims go hand in hand with this book. It just happens that the athletically built and ripped Farrow Greene is closing in on the same target. When it comes to throwing down, Farrow does not lose. But this could be the one bounty that gets away, especially when you have to fight one of Skynets soldiers. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Jules Boyle Feb 18, 2014

    This first issue draws up more questions than it answers, but it's more intriguing than infuriating and makes for a good set-up. I'll be there for issue 2. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Feb 19, 2014

    "Terminator: Enemy of My Enemy" #1 is another solid offering in Dark Horse's stable of Terminator comic books. This one offers adventure and tension, same as the original movie, but throws in a noteworthy mystery surrounding Farrow Greene as she chases her quarry, Elise Fong. This story doesn't have the gravitas that Sarah Connor's adventures did, but this is the first issue. Certainly bigger and more explosive days are ahead following the inaugural chapter of "Terminator: Enemy of My Enemy." Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Feb 19, 2014

    Jamal Igle's art is solid, offering a look similar to that seen in The Final Battle currently. The action is clean and the characters are expressive. My main complaint here is that the book doesn't attempt to capture the seedy vibe of the original film, despite taking place in the same general timeframe. Read Full Review

    CHUD - Graig Kent Feb 22, 2014

    At the moment, the book is all set up, and it hasn't quite taken flight yet. It's a story that will likely be better in its whole than in its parts, but Terminator fans and casual observers should find it an enjoyable one either way. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Michael Moccio Feb 20, 2014

    Hopefully Jolley will take the time to flesh out this cast of characters to really draw the reader into the story; until then, it remains an interesting concept with a mediocre execution. Read Full Review

    Front Towards Gamer - Lido Feb 17, 2014

    A lot of really cool things happened when people decided to break out of the original boxes imposed on Star Trek or Batman, and maybe the same needs to happen to Terminator, because from where I'm sitting, The Terminator Enemy of my Enemy sits firmly in the mediocre and disappointing section; not recommended.

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Feb 19, 2014

    Hopefully, this first issue is just opening to something larger and something a lot cooler because what readers are left with is the same Terminator story we've seen numerous times with a bit of a twist. The actual dialogue writing and art aren't bad at all, but the story feels so redundant that it's really hard to get excited the reader feels like is very similar to its predecessors. Keep your eye out for the continuation of this book but bare in mind this first one is a rough start. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Guy Copes Feb 25, 2014

    Really, Terminator: Enemy of My Enemy #1 isn't so much bad and ugly, as it is just seemingly a retread of better stories in the mythos that have come before. Read Full Review
