Re: Marvel's T2 Adaptation

Possibly the worst comic book adaptation in history. God awful artwork and crappy adaptation. I give Marvel a pass tho, they probably had very little to no time to get it done

Re: Marvel's T2 Adaptation

I know Klaus Janson from batman stories, he usually isnt that loose with his style. I guess it really was the rush



But I like it, it may be extremely simplified storywise and visually, but it has some charm to it

Re: Marvel's T2 Adaptation

If one knows the script, it's very apparent the adaptation was written solely off of it. Some dropped lines of dialogue and different physical depictions of many characters are also a dead giveaway. Janson is indeed a known and respected artists, and the simplification of the artwork has more to do with his style rather than short schedule, although I believe it was also a significant factor in that adaptation. I like it for what it is, it might not be what many T2 fans would expect it to be, but it's a representation of Marvel in the earliest 1990's. It's interesting from different points of view, for example we see how the artist visualized the Pescadero floor scene before even seeing the storyboards. We get some interesting extra lines of dialogue like the T-800's explanation for what the bullets do to the T-1000

It's all about perspective

I don't deny however that in some panels the artwork is downright lazy (T-800's wounds and exposed skull is depicted as doodles) and the story has been insanely shortened and simplified

I bought it in 2003 and I must say I was very disappointed when I opened it for the first time, and then even more when I read it.
