Lady Mechanika, The Complete Volume 1: The Mystery of the Mechanical Corpse is like a Steampunk wet dream. Our heroine Lady Mechanika, a complex and kick-ass character with a troubled and mysterious past, is pure eye candy in both looks and outfits as she poses her attributes all over the page. Of course she is unrealistically blessed in the boob and leg department but that’s part of the appeal. Joe Benítez did an amazing job. The artwork is simply stunning and gorgeously detailed. The storyline has plenty of action, humor and suspence with a nice dollop of dark foreboding to keep this series interesting.

Themes: Victorian Steampunk on steroids, awesome artwork, bad girl Lady Katharine de Winter (or The Commander) looks like Ilsa She Wolf of the SS in her jodhpurs, some of these characters have hella crazy mechanical enhancements, there are dirigibles and there’s a circus too, I would hate to have to go to the bathroom wearing one of those outfits though… all those buckles!

Alexis Nice review Corrie. All those buckles must be a pain to deal with but they always look so good though :)
