7.4 Marvel Comics (The Terminator)




Description

This article is from the The Terminator FAQ, by Karsten A. Loepelmann kloepel@connect.ab.ca with numerous contributions by others.

7.4 Marvel Comics (The Terminator)

"Terminator 2: Judgment Day", issues #1-3. Script adapted by Gregory Wright,
art by Klaus Janson. As with any adaptation, lots of things have been cut
out.
This series is notable for its inclusion of scenes that were removed from the
film, like Sarah adjusting the chip in the Terminator's head (see section
1.2.2). Art is mediocre; this series is only for die-hard, completist
fans--like me! ;-) Reprinted in a squarebound, b&w magazine.

Not really true. Speaking as the guy who was hired to write the Marvel
TERMINATOR 2 series back when the T2 movie was coming out, I can tell you
we were feverishly working to get the licensing moron at Lightstorm
Productions to approve our stories. We had a way-cool concept (if I say so
myself) for the ongoing series that had everyone at Marvel excited.

But this guy thought the series should've been more like the Saturday
morning Terminator cartoon show they were developing at the time (I kid
you not), which can be summed up by "A boy and his pet Terminator". We
refused to do such a juvenile, asinine series, and we found ourselves
stalemated. Ultimately, I found myself out of a writing job, and Marvel
found that the potentially valuable license they had paid good money for
had been squandered.

A very frustrating experience, let me tell you...
