    Transformers Vs. The Terminator #2 is a basic story of Autobots Vs. Decepticons. The inclusion of The Terminator feels more like just a little wrinkle in that fight as the Terminator here doesn't feel like the T-800 at all. Read Full Review

    Fans of the shape-changing robots will surely appreciate the campy carnage that one would expect from the series, but the involvement of Terminator and its mythology is tenuous, at best, and makes for a dense experience that doesn't entirely feel worth investing yourself in. Read Full Review

    Transformers V Terminator #1 was an odd comic. It wasn't great but there were enough interesting concepts introduced that it piqued my interest and forced me to ask the question; How The Fuck is a Terminator supposed to beat a Transformer?

    This issue makes the case that the speed, durability, mobility, and ingenuity of the T-800 goes a long way. The Terminator we're following does a much better job against the Decepticons than I expected. We can now make a reasonable argument that a gang of Terminators could give the Transformer's serious problems. That's not even accounting for Skynet's later upgrades like the T-1000.

    After a brief and batshit crazy skirmish between the T-800, Megatron, Starscream, and Shockwave. Once more

    An improvement thanks to the Transformers taking up most of the spotlight, but the terminator is still extremely out of character. The only reason the one in T2 makes one-liners is because he is taught to.
