    TMNT #95 is another great entry into this series. I was a little bit worried about them drawing out this “City at War” buildup to issue #100 too much, but they have been doing a fantastic job so far, slow-burning the storyline while still adding some very interesting mystery and character dynamics along the way. I also continue to love the little history of TMNT at IDW with the creators in the back-up replacing the letters page. They go through year three, the year 2013-2014, which involves the Northhampton storyline and some of my favorite mini-series. It is great to read the creators' thoughts on those and what they tried to bring out story- and art-wise. Read Full Review

    i'm not really sure how to feel about this one.

    -i really liked the characterizations.
    -i liked the balance of different plot threads.
    -i like the intense sense of urgency throughout the issue.

    HOWEVER...

    -the overall plot is still taking too long to move.
    -too much melodrama.
    -not enough action.
    -i DID NOT like the ending.
    the ending felt like nostalgia pandering, and it took me right out of the story.

    TMNT #95 is arguably the most talked about issue of this series since Donatello was practically murdered in issue #44. That was when I jumped onto the series and I'm pretty sure we'll see a lot of new fans after this one. 

    Getting the big reveal and spoiler out of the way up front, we have a fifth turtle, and it's a girl. In a last-ditch effort to save Jannika from death, Leonardo and Donatello save her by facilitating a blood transfusion using Leo's blood. I don't feel bad spoiling the issue because Tom Waltz spoiled it the day the issue dropped, ha. 
    ​​

    The beauty of all of this is that

    A. Jannika is not a new character.
    B. Tom Waltz didn't just pull this one out of his ass.
