The mysteries surrounding private investigator LADY MECHANIKA and her origin begin to unfold as she heads to a rundown city known as Satan's Alley. Located on the lower eastside, it is an area of town under siege by the presence of a murderous creature of unknown origin.
While a weapons manufacturer has issued a reward for the unknown slayer, drawing a crowd of bounty hunters looking to cash in, Lady Mechanika's purpose is far more personal - information that could lead to the truth about her creation.
In mid-April 2020, the CGC census contained 58 gradings of the "Convention Edition" with 29 in the top grade of 9.8 (near mint / mint).
Below is a Benitez sketch, which he labelled "Trying on a new hat" (part of this sketch is shown within #0, which also features some other early Lady Mechanika sketches).
