The fourth issue of the TMNT spin-off featuring the newest mutant turtle from IDW Publishing.
Jennika is caught between two parents fighting to determine whether a child belongs in with them in the Mutant Zone. When one of the parents is revealed to have ties to the criminal underworld, and Jennika’s own dark past, the newest Ninja Turtle must decide how much she has left to atone for. Can a life of violence ever be escaped?Ronda Pattinson (Author) Jodi Nishijima (Artist, Cover Artist)
this mini-series does a very fine job on building on the community within Mutant Town. Jennika is a good conduit of that, as she is exploring her new life as a mutant, almost as much as those around her.
On top of that, she has a past – one that she is not too proud of. In trying to make amends, she is doing her best, but are there those who need her help.
This is what brings her to the gate of Mutant Town, where a fellow mutant is wanting out. It seems she is the former wife of a mob boss, and she wants to get in contact with her son.
The twist here is that the late husband of the mob boss was known to Jennika – and not in a good way.
This was a good issue, with some simple storytelling and some good action. There is a very good twist at the end, and I wonder where this is going. The art and the fight scenes are well done too.
The artists must have a whale of a time doing so many animals and doing such a good job of putting expressions on their faces.
