There are not too many steam-punk style comic books out there, and I certainly did not expect one from Aspen MLT, but that is exactly what they will be releasing later this month with Lady Mechanika.
A few months ago we talked to comic creator Joe Benitez about his project, which he seemed extremely excited about, and now we are pleased to reveal that the release date is around the corner.
Issue #0 will act as a prelude to Lady Mechanika's story, introducing her to audiences and delving into her backstory. Half human and half machine, Lady Mechanika struggles with her identity and not knowing who she is.
Check out the official solicit from Aspen below!
It is Great Britain, in the turn of the century. The occult and paranormal occurrences of the period cast a dark shadow over society. However, one private investigator, LADY MECHANIKA, is clever enough to unlock the mysteries of the supernatural using an arsenal of high-tech gadgetry and unconventional, scientific technology. Yet, the real mystery lies in her creation. She is part human; part mechanical, but entirely uncertain of her origin and identity—her true existence. And discovering this cruel truth of who she is, may ultimately, lead to her downfall.
The comic is written and penciled by Joe Benitez with Colors by Peter Steigerwald. Will you be embarking on Lady Mechanika's journey of self discovery later this fall?
