It's an early issue art, likely from somewhere around issue 15

@lagozzino: Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't have kept reading the series if there wasn't enough good stuff. But before Ron Marz came along it was a mess, the arcs you pointed out are good examples. That said the Ron Marz era isn't perfect either. Nor was Seely's run.
One of the recurring problems Witchblade has is they never explore a lot of the great stuff they introduce to their full potential. I actually have another thread in this forum pointing this out after a disappointing conclusion to one of the latest arcs.
I really enjoy the new IDW Bebop and Rocksteady, they are exactly what they are supposed to be in my eyes thugs, dumb brutish idiotic thugs given way too much power for their brains and now able to take their primitive enjoyment of violence to an uncontrollable levels. When they show up expect bloodshed, mayhem and collateral damage because that's all they are good for.
Definition of an animal-"any member of the kingdom Animalia, comprising multicellular organisms that have a well-defined shape and usually limited growth, can move voluntarily, actively acquire food and digest it internally, and have sensory and nervous systems that allow them to respond rapidly to stimuli"
Last time I checked, we fall under that category.
Humans are mammals, therefore yes.
specifically of the great ape order.
By the scientific definition of what an animal is, we are animals that's it
I am totally o.k with this, even if Donatello stays dead (he won't be if he did I'd be fine about it). This is a great opportunity to take the series in a good direction where being a hero/protagonist does not entitle you to live if you face two opponents that completely outclass you. It's been thoroughly established in City War that Bebop and Rocksteady are ridiculously powerful proving capable of taking on all the turtles at once with splinter and some tech help. Seriously what else was supposed to happen in any verisimilitude? By all rights Donnie got off easy, Rocksteady could have cracked his shell open like a peanut.
Peter would do fine. None of the physical threats would be insurmontable for him. Clayface and such might be a challenge, but it's nothing outside his league, he'd adjust quickly. Really the only real danger are intellectual threats like Joker, Ras and such, provided they plan properly where his physical attributes don't matter. At that point his smart, provided he doesn't rush in like a goob he should be able to overcome them as well.
