The newest hero in a half shell’s story will be written and illustrated by Brahm Revel and comes during the aftermath of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles “City at War” storyline.
IDW’s description of the story tells us that Jennika is still trying to adjust to her mutation and life as a ninjitsu practicing turtle, and while working through the paces of that, gets drawn into a conflict with a villain that’s never been seen before in the TMNT universe.
“Jennika has always been a fascinating character, and her story is now moving in directions none of us could have ever anticipated,” Revel said in a statement to IDW. “I’m very excited about the opportunity to revisit Jenn’s past and explore how she’s been handling the recent changes in her life, all while being tested by a world that’s changing just as rapidly as she is.”
IDW Editor Bobby Curnow added, “Brahm has a fantastic knack for revealing character through adversity. With the Jennika miniseries, he’s digging deep into what makes this fan-favorite character tick, all in a fast-moving and accessible story. I’m also excited for people to see the back-up stories from up-and-coming creators that will be featured in every issue.”
