My Review: So Lady Mechanika Vol. 3 was on my Spring TBR list and seeing it on Netgalley under the Read Now section, I was super excited. I have to say I was a bit disappointed mainly because of the length of this volume. There were only two chapters in this volume. I really wanted more from this but sadly it was a short part of the story that ended very quickly. I did enjoy the story. You get to see more story of Lady Mechanika trying to figure out where she came from. The story deals with children getting murdered and she believes this might have to do with her past. We are also introduced to a new character who I enjoyed. I feel like he will be a character that appears later on in the comics so I am excited for that.
The artwork was amazing as always. I always enjoy seeing the new outfits of Lady Mechanika wears. They are drawn so beautifully and so detailed. There was this one character that popped up for short time that I thought was very cool looking. The artist is very good at drawing the little details. I always look forward to these comics for the art alone.
Overall I enjoyed the story. I thought the art was really well done as always. It’s a bit shorter than I would have liked it to be. I’m happy I ended up finding this on Netgalley and got to read it before it came out.
Overall Rating: 3/5 stars
*Thank you Netgalley for giving me an early copy of this in exchange for a honest review.*
