“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 press release. “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.”

Jennika is a former member of the notorious Foot Clan who received a transfusion of Turtle blood … resulting in her transmutation into a Ninja Turtle herself. Co-created by Tom Waltz and Sophie Campbell, the character’s name has to be a tribute to another “Jenn” who turned green after getting a blood transfusion, right? Or is that a fun coincidence?

“Brahm has a fantastic knack for revealing character through adversity,” said Editor Bobby Curnow. “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.”
