The comic-book license to T1 has been held by two companies at different
times: first by Now Comics, and later by Dark Horse Comics. These comics
expanded on the canon presented in the T1 movie *only*, not explicitly
incorporating the events of T2. The current status of the T1 license is
unknown. The license to T2 was obtained by Marvel Comics, which only produced
an adaptation of the T2 movie. This license is currently held by Malibu
Entertainment Inc., which is owned by Marvel Entertainment. Malibu produced
two interlinking series based on T2. Malibu still has the licence for T2, but
Marvel filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy in late 1996.
