For those of you who read my blog, you might know that I’m a total fan girl for Lady Mechanika. These eye candy graphic novels are such a treat to read and has made me 100% invested into the characters and this Steampunk world. The Clockwork Assassin is the perfect blend of Steampunk, murder and mystery.
Vol. 4: The Clockwork Assassin, follows Lady Mechanika in her hometown with a new threat and new adventure. Besides, my sexy Detective Inspector Singh is back in this installment *squee!*. This time however, Lady Mechanika and her side-kick friend Mr. Lewis are the chief suspects in an investigation involving murders of high profile people.
I rather enjoyed this one simply because it had more elements of Steampunk in it than the previous installment. I’m also hoping for a little romance between Lady Mechanika and Inspector Singh in the future because the chemistry is strong between those two. It’s always just a tease; I just know it’s coming.
As always, the art is lovely to look at and it’s fun to see the cover variations at the end of the story.
There might be a little cliff hanger-y type ending to this one. I’m not mad at that though. It’s just a hint of a villain that will probably evolve to become worse than present. So, in one word: chills. Super excited for the next adventure.
If you like graphic novels, kick ass heroines, and steampunk, well…what are you waiting for!? Read these from the beginning to get the scope of the world (and backstory) to Lady Mechanika.
