Lady Mechanika V.1 Mystery of the Mechanical Corpse by Joe Benitez

She has mechanical limbs but doesn't know why.  When she finally finds someone like her, she gets captured.  Even when she escapes, she still doesn't know where the other mechanical came from.  But she has an idea.

Diamond Book Distributors and Net Galley allowed me to read this graphic book for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can grab a copy now.

The artwork in this series is lovely.  She may have red eyes and strange looking hands and legs but glasses or contacts hide the eyes and gloves and clothing and shoes cover the rest.  She looks good in a corset.  And she fights like the devil.

As she and an old friend of hers fight for the same thing, someone is going lose.  Then the gypsies get involved and it gets even more interesting.

This grouping of tales takes you far enough to meet a mysterious man from the past and to get you involved in illicit activities and fights between the various competing groups.  The fights are vivid and watching Lady Mechanika win makes you root for her character.  

She has more mysteries to solve before she'll get to the truth of who she really is...
