it was amazing
bookshelves: steampunk, graphic-novels, asia

In 1764, the Spanish have been driven from Manila in the Philippines, and place the blame on the British selling clockwork automatons to the locals. But the truth is closer to home.

This is a fun steampunk comic, following Rita as she completes a mission for the Carpenter. I enjoyed the way the mythic elements were woven in and the artwork is great. It's a short comic - about 24 pages - and comes with a glossary at the back explaining some of the locations, mythology, etc. Highly recommended.
