From a story by Kevin Eastman and Bobby Curnow, writer Tom Waltz explores the consequences of Karai’s actions. Are the Turtles ready to become as ruthless as Jennika in order to strike back? With Jennika’s heartbeat fading, does this mean all hope is lost? Shawn Lee’s lettering hones in on the emotional turmoil within the Turtles as they consider making some dark decisions.
3) The Artwork!
Artis Dave Wachter captures the shock, anger, and fear on the Turtles’ expressions as they hurry Jennika into the emergency room. Interestingly, notice the anger Donnie has on his face as he recounts the events to April. There is fear on Michelangelo’s face as he feels the helplessness of the situation.
2) The Colors!
Interestingly, colorist Ronda Pattison uses a lot of gray tones in the backgrounds. This really makes the red tones pop out, especially with Jennika bleeding. In the panel, notice the shadows and black colors surrounding Splinter’s body.
1) A Gripping Read!
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #94 is a worthy installment that adds so much suspense and excitement, leading to a shocking cliffhanger. The “City at War” takes a major turn as we start heading towards the #100 issue milestone.
