Review: Lady Mechanika Volume 1: Mystery of the Mechanical Corpse by Joe Benitez

Feb 13, 2017

Discover a beautifully illustrated steampunk world of airships, monsters, and one courageous but haunted heroine...

The tabloids dubbed her "Lady Mechanika," the sole survivor of a mad scientist's horrific experiments which left her with mechanical limbs. Having no memory of her captivity or her former life, Lady Mechanika eventually built a new life for herself as an adventurer and private investigator, using her unique abilities to solve cases the proper authorities couldn't or wouldn't handle. But she never stopped searching for the answers to her own past. 

Set in a fictionalized steampunk Victorian England, a time when magic and superstition clashed with new scientific discoveries and inventions, Lady Mechanika chronicles a young woman's obsessive search for her identity as she investigates other mysteries involving science and the supernatural. 

This volume collects the entire first Lady Mechanika mini-series The Mystery of the Mechanical Corpse, including its prequel chapter The Demon of Satan's Alley, plus a complete cover art gallery.


Absolutely gorgeous art!  Lady Machanika V. 1 is an interesting steampunk comic. I was drawn to the cover and wanted to learn more.  I wish some characters had more depth, they felt flat during the course of the story.  Even though I wasn't wowed by the comic, I feel as if I would like to read more from Joe Benitez because this was the first comic in the series and stories and characters tend to grow.
