Lady Mechanika Finds a New Home at Image Starting in August
Image Comics has announced that the long-running, fan-favorite Steampunk adventure series—Lady Mechanika by Joe Benitez—has found a new home at the publisher. The adventure begins with an Image Comics FCBD 2021 edition of the first appearance of the character available at participating comic shops on Saturday, August 14 and then a new Lady Mechanika story launching this September from Image.
The entire backlist of Lady Mechanika will be made available from Image Comics too, beginning this August with the long-anticipated reprints of the volume one trade paperback and hardcover editions. These reprints will join a total of seven trade paperbacks and five hardcover editions of the beloved series.
In Lady Mechanika, readers follow a young woman during the Victorian Era who is desperately in search of the secrets to her past—a past that left her with extraordinary, but unnatural, mechanical limbs.
The FCBD 2021 edition of Lady Mechanika will include the stand-alone short story “The Demon of Satan’s Alley,” which first introduced Lady Mechanika and her steampunk world (Lady Mechanika #0)—plus a preview of “The Monster of the Ministry of Hell-th,” the newest story by series creator Joe Benitez which will debut this year at Image Comics.
