Two Terminators went back in time to 1984, one to kill Sarah Conner, and another targeting NYPD Officer Lucy Castro, a rookie cop assigned to one of the worst sections of the city.  Isolated and unable to call for backup, Castro faces off against the relentless T800, relying on unlikely allies to see her through to dawn.

o Brian Wood delves into the world of Terminator.

    A trigger happy page turner that harkens back to the glory days of the Terminator film franchise! Read Full Review

    Brian Wood and Jeff Stokely bring a Terminator story that's a tribute to where it all began, but will also clearly leave its own distinct mark on the franchise. The classic '80s sci-fi action story vibe is strong and there are pieces of both Sarah Connor and Kyle Reese peaking out of Lucy Castro. I can't wait to see where this story takes us and I find that I'm already worried that there are only going to be four issues. If that's not a mark of a good comic book, I don't know what is.

    A new Terminator target is revealed in this issue which has plenty of action drawn in an unexpected style. I'm enjoying the story, which features some solid action and a decent mystery. The style of art has me wondering if it will grow on me in the next three issues, but I'm willing to go along just to see how the story plays out. This should be a solid purchase for fans of the Terminator. Read Full Review

    The artwork and colors are very raw and subdued compared to the four colors of many other works. The details when it comes to the backgrounds pulls you into 1980s NYC. Readers will feel like they're on the hunt with the T-800. A decent start to the run, looking forward to seeing what Issue #2 will bring for Castro. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Erik Gonzalez Aug 26, 2018

    Overall, this series is off to a fairly strong start, just like the main character. This creative team is doing its best to honor the source material, but not be beholden to it. Science fiction is a genre meant to allow for the creative freedom to comment on our present world and its issues and, so far, Sector War is accomplishing just that. Read Full Review

    Has Lucy got what it takes to survive the night against an unstoppable enemy? So far she is giving him a real workout. The city of New York is almost a character in its own right here as with the movie. Let's see who's side it will be on, I think Lucy has the home team advantage so far, but the Terminator already makes it clear not everyone is on her side. Read Full Review

    Terminator: Sector War #1 is a solid read, even if it just feels like the original Terminator movie seemingly by design. Further issues may give this miniseries more of an identity, but this first installment isnt bad by any stretch. I can recommend it easily enough, so feel free to check it out. Read Full Review
