THE TERMINATOR: THE ENEMY WITHIN

The Terminator: The Enemy Within #2, December 1991.
Cover by Simon Bisley.

Yes, another nostalgia trip of comics that I had incomplete series' of.
As with Secondary Objectives, I only ever had two issues of The Enemy Within; #2 and #3. #2 opens with even more future soldiers travelling back in time (more? Yes, more). Astin and Mary are operating on Dudley because his cyborg brain is still picking up Terminator transmissions.

Above: a scene from Mary's contemplation of the future war. One of the weirder elements in this series is a thorny (horny?) Terminator. According to Wikipedia, this is a self-repaired C890.L - the Terminator from Secondary Objectives.

The Terminator: The Enemy Within #3, January 1992.
Cover by Simon Bisley.

The problem with only owning an incomplete series is you're on a perpetual cliffhanger. Still, the thorny, horny C890.L is the star of several nifty action sequences, though seems to lose the horns halfway through the comic.
