Lady Mechanika Vol. 4: Clockwork Assassin by Joe Benitez and M. M. Chen ~ A Review

by MK French

A series of brutal murders seems to link back to Mr. Lewis, as the victims are former coworkers. Detective Inspector Singh has to evaluate if Lady Mechanika is a hero or a cold-blooded killer, as she seems to be one of the few people physically capable of slicing people in half.

graphic novel, fantasy
The art is just as good as prior volumes, and this is a very tightly wound story that doesn't rely overly much on knowing a lot about prior events. There is one asterisk on one panel which refers back to a prior volume, but it doesn't slow down the reading or enjoyment of the story in the slightest.

This volume is more of a straightforward murder mystery, with only the barest of hints of an overarching conspiracy. That makes it a very quick read so that you can take your time and enjoy the steampunk art and the additional cover designs that are included in the back of the book.
