    Leonardo da Vinci was one of historys greatest minds. Artist, inventor, man of science and much more. Take a dive into history with this series exploring his early days during the Renaissance, with his loyal apprentice by his side through the chaos and strife of the politics and wars of the time. Not to mention their giant robot, a wondrous being ripped from the pages of a sci-fi film and at the command of one of the Masters himself. History lovers will get a kick out of it, and fans of Paul and Chriss works will delight to see these two working together. Read Full Review

    It's a bit of a rough read at first but a second reading helps to smooth things out a bit and I think with a touch more distinctive elements for some of the supporting characters it'll be very fun visually. I like what Evenhuis does here with the smoothness of the designs a Read Full Review

    Monstro Mechanica #1 is a great start to a series that has bounds of potential and presents an inventive take on a historical icon. A compelling last page hook should keep readers invested, and as long as the three leads are front and center, Monstro Mechanica has a bright future. Read Full Review

    Look, like I said before: the premise alone should tell you whether you'll like this or not. And if you don't think you will, I'm sorry. Because, Monstro Mechanica #1 is perhaps the best first issue I've personally read from AfterShock (granted, there are a couple bigger names I haven't checked out yet). I definitely recommend picking this one up for yourself once it releases in December. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Nov 15, 2017

    Monstro Mechanica is a promising debut for AfterShock's latest series. The Assassin's Creed similarities may help bring in a few more readers, but the real beating heart of this book is the compelling relationship between Leonardo da Vinci and his assistant, Isabel. Not every aspect of this book is as strong. The political backdrop is a little played out, and the art sometimes lacks a dynamic energy. But regardless, this looks to be the start of a fascinating story. Read Full Review
