This book is only a pair of issues deep, but those two issues have been some of the best comics I've read in quite a while in terms of pure enjoyment of the four-color art form. Benitez is taking full advantage of everything a comic book can be and having a great deal of fun with it. This story packs in absurd comic science wrapped in a crunchy steampunk coating with a creamy mystery center. It's enjoyable, charming, and a grand reprieve from the event books I find myself reading more and more of each and every week. Do yourself a favor, take a break from the events and remind yourself how entertaining comics should be. Read Full Review
The story is also spooling out slowly - we don't really learn much about Mechanika's history here. That's not a problem with a monthly comic, but for a "seven-monthly" comic, it might be a good idea to streamline (steamline?) things a bit. Read Full Review
There's probably going to be a small percentage of peoplethat actually enjoy the story and good for them, personally I'd get this bookjust for the art. Benitez's style and character designs are a thing of beautyand if he's careful he could become one of the industry's top art talents likeAspen founder Michael Turner. Read Full Review
Great art. Seriously, this is some of the best art you'll see in comics today. And the general premise of the comic is very interesting. But this comic is too wordy to get a really high grade. Read Full Review
