(collects issues 1-6 of Lady Mechanika: The Tablet of Destinies)
Pros: gorgeous artwork, fast paced story, lots of women
Lady Mechanika returns to London in time to witness the kidnapping of Lewis’ niece. Seems the girl’s grandfather is part of an African expedition uncovering a long lost underground city. And within that city is the tablet of destinies, rumoured to be a powerful weapon.
Once again the artwork is incredible. It’s lush and detailed.
The story’s fast paced, going from one crisis or revelation to another. I enjoyed that this book had several diverse locations, and peoples.
Lady Mechanika’s a fantastic protagonist. I’m impressed with the number of women the series has introduced, and the great costumes they wear (some sexy, others practical).
I’m loving this series.
