Jennika returns in her own adventures again in the world of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in the first issue of this new mini-series from IDW Publishing.
Due to overwhelming demand the breakout hit TMNT character is back with another solo adventure! Mutants are turning into monsters and fear is spreading. Jennika takes to the underworld of Mutant Town to get to the bottom of the situation. Little does she know old enemies and new await!Brahm Revel (Author, Artist, Cover Artist)
It’s always good to see more of the TMNT and with the regular series going well, some characters can get lost in the shuffle. This helps with that, with Jennika dealing with other problems in Mutant Town.
This starts off with a lot of reaction to those outside of the town in New York. Most are not good, and there is a lot of tension in the air. Jennika is aware of this, and this makes her problems in the town harder.
She’s trying her best though and this is shown well when she stops a mugging. Although she does get the wrong end of the stick!
The main build is these ‘monster mutants’ though, an she has a lot of trouble calming down one of them. The backstory of the Hyena is interesting and adds a lot to it all. The fight scene takes up a lot of the story, but it works well and makes a lot of sense.
Jennika thinks she knows the reason why, but things are not as they seem as more arrive.
This was a good kickoff issue to a new mini series, and I wonder where it will go and who it will use.
The art is fun and there is a lot to take in with all the mutants. This was a fast paced issue.
