Review: Lady Mechanika, Volume 3: The Lost Boys of West Abbey

34427868 Lady Mechanika, Volume 3: The Lost Boys of West Abbey by M.M. Chen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lady Mechanika's investigation into the murders of -undesirable- children in Mechanika City triggers an unexpected reaction from her subconscious self. But are they truly lost memories finally surfacing after so many years, or just simple nightmares? And what connection does the killer have to Lady Mechanika's past? Collects the complete third Lady Mechanika mini-series, The Lost Boys of West Abbey, including extra pages which were not published in the original comic books.

I received an eGalley from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review, this in no way affects my review.

I really enjoyed this one! It's my first time reading a Lady Mechanika comic/graphic novel, and I would love to read the rest! I picked up this title because of the cover and title, but also because the blurb sounded interesting. While I wish it was longer, and that the story took a little longer to wrap up, I still enjoyed it. I loved the art, and the creepy setting was perfect! The characters were fun and unique, and the plot although short and simple, was still entertaining. Were it longer and a little more complex I would have easily given this 5 stars! As it is my first reading of Lady Mechanika, I almost did anyway, but seeing review for other Lady Mechanika works, I decided to wait until I have read more before awarding it a 5 star review. Still I loved reading this, and hope to read more soon!
