Review: Monstro Mechanica #1

A new series starring Leonardo da Vinci, his female apprentice, Isabel, and their wooden robot!

At the height of the Renaissance, warring factions vie for control of Leonardo da Vinci’s destructive arsenal. The only thing standing in their way is Leonardo’s young apprentice and her nine-foot tall mechanical bodyguard. Together, they navigate a world of wicked men and war machines, determined to save Leonardo from the world—and the world from Leonardo.

“Poor is the pupil who does not surpass his master.” – Leonardo da Vinci

Nothing says Renaissance quiet, like political and religious power struggles colliding against each other and writer Paul Allor delivers that and more in Monstro Mechanica #1. As possibly the very definition of a Renaissance man, Leonardo DaVinci is thrown into the mix of it all bringing his genius and interesting mechanical creations. Everyone wants his services to gain power and then there’s the mystery of his mechanical monster and his ass-kicking assistant.

The art by Chris Evenhuis has a lot of forced perspective. It helps create numerous superb views of Florence from the streets to the roofs. There’s also a vibrant color palette to match and creates the necessary shift from day to night. There’s also some great detail like period accurate clothing to make everything almost believable.
