The final issue of the first ever meeting between the two sci-fi franchises comes to an end with this issue.
Starscream, ever the ambitious backstabber, has a proposal for our cyborg friend from the future. Will the Terminator listen and help him ascend to ruler of the Decepticons? Will Skynet’s eventual creation of the Terminators be derailed?
Unfortunately, it’s hard to care what happens. Sometimes, it’s hard to work out what’s going on even while reading through the story; the art is so murky and unclear that even when an action is highlighted and zoomed into – as is the case with one panel – it’s still not obvious as to what we’re supposed to be looking at. Sarah Connor becomes a badass completely inexplicably (and suddenly) and the ending, which is supposed to be a shocking twist, just elicits a bit of a shrug.
The whole series has been a real disappointment, unfortunately – a real missed opportunity. With countless Transformers crossovers (and plenty of great Terminator comics, even crossovers, too) many of which are inventive and fun, there’s no reason to subject yourself to Transformers/The Terminator even if you’re a fan of both franchises. Hopefully, this one won’t be back.
