Lady Mechanika: First ever HC collection, now in DUTCH version
Now for the very first time ever, a HC-treatment is presented. Not in English, not published in USA, but in the Netherlands!
And just like with the oversized OGN-softcover Dutch presentation (CLICK here) these limited edition Hardcovers are also in the oversized (yet regular European format) editions… with special variant editions even!
If you want to have these limited edtion oversized variant cover edition hardcovers of that first amazing story-arc, Joe Benitez, Marcia Chen worked on, then you have to go to the website of the Dutch publisher Dark Dragon Books (click here) and get them picked up at the First Look festival in Utrecht (NL), where the books will premiere including a signing momentum by the one and only Joe Benitez himself. Or have someone pick them up for you, of course 🙂
Lady Mechanika is a creator-owned comic book series by Joe Benitez, inspired by the steampunk genre. “Steampunk” is all about re-imagining history, usually combining the elegance of the Victorian Era with more advanced science fiction technology.
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, Mechanika eventually built a new life for herself as a private detective, using her unique abilities to solve cases the police couldn’t or wouldn’t handle. But she never stopped searching for the answers to her own past.
Set in turn of the century England, a time when magic and superstition clashed with new scientific discoveries and inventions, Lady Mechanika is about a young woman’s search for her own identity as she solves other mysteries involving science and the supernatural.
