    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Feb 26, 2020

    Jennika #1 delivers what I want in a Jennika mini-series and kind of (to me at least) confirms my complaints from the main series. This is where I want to see her dealing with all of her problems. The main TMNT series has enough characters. Jennika #1 really made me like the character once again. I was growing a bit weary of her in the main series. We get to delve into everything she has gone through a little (I am glad this is a mini-series so we can get more in-depth) in 8224e3. From her dealing with her mutation, her break up with Casey Jones, her past and the loss of her mentor Splinter. It also has a nice hook ending that has me very interested to see where this goes.

    With Jennika #1, we finally get to see who Jenny is. In keeping with the main TMNT storyline, Jennika keeps the same feeling and warrior spirit that we are used to seeing from her character. This was a good start at what Im sure will be a great mini-series that will have old fans shaking their head in approval and maybe wrangle some new fans in. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Brian Wayne Feb 26, 2020

    With this being Jennika's first solo series, the stakes are always going to be high with a new character of this magnitude. If IDW wants the masses to love Jennika like I do, this first issue needed to be both insightful and entertaining. Thankfully, the first issue was exactly what new potential readers needed to get in tune with the newest Hero in a Half-Shell and stay interested in her character development. Emotions are hit. The action is on point. I can't wait for more Jennika! Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Mar 4, 2020

    I like seeing more of Jennika's past, but some of this issue's events feel a bit contrived. The art is quite good, though, and I want to see where this story is going. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Feb 26, 2020

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Jennika #1 was, in the end, a bit of a mixed bag. While its storytelling was mostly on the strong side, its visual presentation left much to be desired. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Lucas Fashina Feb 26, 2020

    The premier issue was entertaining. But more importantly IDW has shown us that issues like these could eventually turn into something of value later. Jennika's premier issue it is more of a tour Mutant town, and how the citizens are getting along. Making their first appearance in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Jennika #1: Vincent the Rabbit; and Silas a character from Jennika's past. Read Full Review

    Jennika was involved in the lives of the TMNT well before she was mutated in the main title. She has mostly been regulated to the background or some sort of side quest but has never really been at the forefront of any storyline or treated as a lead until recently. With this mini-series, everything changes.

    Ronda Pattison deserves special attention in this issue. She does the coloring for the main book but has chosen a completely different look for this series. It's cool and shows off some of her range that we don't normally get to see in the main series. I didn't realize she was the colorist until I went back to do the review. I know the overall style may not be for everyone but more
