Lady Mechanika, Volume 5: La Belle Dame Sans Merci

Lady Mechanika returns for a search into her mysterious past. This time, she finally has a few resounding clues thanks to the help of her close friends and allies, Archibald Lewis and Inspector Singh. As was to be expected, the search is difficult at best and perilous at worst. To top it all off, Mr Lewis finds himself in a spot of mortal trouble.

The chronological sixth volume in the series does not disappoint. The art, which has always been stunning, gets even more beautiful in this one. The new villains are splendid, as are the recurring characters. The story is magnificent and I personally can’t wait to see where it goes next.

A word of advice, though, if you have not yet delved into the absolutely stunning setting of Mechanika: read them in the correct order. If you pick this one up first, you will be left with more than a few questions. The book makes various references to previous volumes. You won’t be disappointed if you read the series from the start. The world of Lady Mechanika is as varied in settings as it is in storylines.

Another absolute win for Benitez Production, 10/10 and a resounding double chef’s kiss!
