Synopsis: When a series of brutal murders linked to Mr. Lewis’ past leads Detective Inspector Singh to Lady Mechanika’s doorstep, the Inspector is finally forced to consider: is Lady Mechanika a crime-fighting hero or a cold blooded killer?
My Thoughts: I’ve become such a big of Lady Mechankia from reading the comics on Netgalley. I even got to meet Joe Benitez last year at NYCC and got a comic and poster of Lady Mechankia signed by him. So the moment I saw there was a new one available to read right away I jumped at the opportunity.
I ended up really enjoying this one a lot. It’s a murder mystery. These men that ended up working together a while back are found dead. Lady Mechankia is the main suspect. So she’s ready to figure out who is behind these attacks to clear her name.
This comic is very short. The story is very action packed that it ends up going by so quickly. I am a huge fan of mysteries so I enjoy that this story was trying to figure out who the killer is. I have to say there are a couple of new characters you meet and I had some guesses but I was wrong. I liked that I ended up not being able to figure out who it was. Plus I have to say the ending had me very excited for the next installment. I can’t wait to see what’s going to happen next. It leaves you asking a bunch of questions.
Another thing that is so amazing about these comics is the artwork. I really can’t get enough of them. So much time and detail are put into it and it really shows. It is a very detailed comic and I really appreciate all the little details that go into it. It really does look amazing. That’s why I had to buy a poster at comic con. I would love to hang that in my room. Lady Mechankia always looks amazing. The style is steampunk and I love how it looks. I always look forward to seeing the new artwork.
Overall this was a great comic. The story was very interesting and really left me wanting more. It was a very quick read. You can end up reading this in less than an hour. The story sucks you in and just ends up flying by. Plus after that ending, I am really looking forward to the next one.
