Issues issues #1-17 (1988?). "It's after the first Terminator film, set in
the
future with the focus on John Conner's [sic] battle with Skynet. This movie
tie-in doesn't follow the film's direction at all, and as a comic has a lame
story with so-so art." [from "Hero Illustrated" #6] This series has been
criticized for its stylized, "cartoony" art.
