Pros: gorgeous artwork, interesting characters, short mystery
When old co-workers of Archibald Lewis start dying, Lady Mechanika is implicated in their murders.
As with the previous volumes I loved the artwork. I love the sharp cheekbones and narrow chins. I love Lady Mechanika’s Victorian-steampunk outfits. There’s a lot of motion and animation to the frames.
This volume can easily be read independent of the others (there are 2 minor references to prior events). The mystery is fast paced and while there are only a few suspects, it’s neat seeing the team investigate. I was curious why Gwendolyn Cain wasn’t the first person they questioned given her entourage at the funeral and the description of the killer.
This volume collects three issues and tells a complete story that’s entertaining and beautifully rendered.
