I received an advanced copy of Lady Mechanika La Dama de la Muerte TP from Net Galley in exchange for a fair and honest review.

 

Lady Mechanika La Dama de la Muerte is a side story following the events in volume three. I would have rated this a three and a half star, but honestly the artwork is just so stunning that I had to bump it up at least half a star for that. Seriously, I think I might have to see if I can buy a print or two from this volume. Even though it is a side story, it does contain some pretty massive spoilers for the other volumes, so I strongly urge that you read those first (though if you don’t mind spoilers it isn’t a requirement).

Spoiler Warning

As the title (and artwork) suggests the theme is heavily focused on the Dios de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead). The merging of artwork and style here is truly breathtaking, and by far the highlight of the volume (please take the time to look at all of the alternate covers in the back, you won’t regret it!). I seriously can’t seem to move past how beautiful all the art is, hence why I’m gushing about it so much. I think it’s safe to say that while the artwork for Lady Mechanika has always been exceptional, this volume takes the cake, so to speak. Take a look below:

                I think was my favorite so far of the Lady Mechanika series – it is very approachable with beautiful art (I sound like a broken record, don’t I?), an interesting albeit slightly heart breaking plot, and well-rounded characters. While I don’t want to give everything away, I will say that you should be prepared to be hit in the gut during this story; as the story fits the theme very well.

There is less of the steampunk element in this volume, but honestly I’m ok with that trade-off. The cultural theme of the story more than made up for it in this particular case. While I’m no expert on Dios de Los Muertos, I do believe that it was beautifully interpreted here.Lady Mechanika La Dama de la Muerte Tp

About Liz

I am an avid animal lover, photographer, graphic designer, and much more. I love to create art, and am willing to try and artistic technique at least once. I am particularly fond of artworks involving a lot of emotion and color. The purpose of my blog is for me to be open and honest with myself and the world about my attempts to grow as an artist. The facts: My favorite color is constantly changing, so don’t worry about trying to keep up with that! I’m in my 20’s, married, and looking to find the perfect job for me (ideally something that can involve my creativity or my love of animals). I have 6 cats (If we’re being technical, I have 2 cats and my parents have 4), a bearded dragon, a parakeet, and two betas. I adore all of them, and they frequently are my photography models. My blog will primarily be consisting of my 365 (366) photography project, updated daily (hopefully). I’m also working on a 52 weeks project, where I try a new type of photography style or technique each week. That will be updated as the photos are processed.
