(Barry’s score 4 out of 5 stars)

The Compleat Terminal City is a collection of Dean Motter and Michael Lark’s Terminal City series of the mid 1990s. The artwork is superb and it brings to mind the work of Chester Gould. Awesome art deco retro-futurism, I really enjoyed it. Having said that, a couple of the stories were a little weak, although the artwork more than makes up for some goobered stories.

All in all, I think Dark Horse Comics cranked out a nice product; and I highly recommend it for the comic book fan or the retro-future enthusiast. I give it 4 stars out of 5. It’s a shame that the future didn’t include a few robot servants because my living room could use a cleaning (Peppy’s fault, he’s a messy dog).
