Benitez started working in comic at Image Comics in the early 1990s, where he quickly became a superstar artist. Having worked on titles like Gen13, Weapon Zero, and The Darkness his creator owned works are some of this best. Wraithborn is a great series we highly recommend picking up from him, but you all likely know him from the unbelievably successful steam punk comic series, Lady Mechanika! Well he has worked for major publishes from Top Cow to DC, Aspen to Zenescope, he’s reached a whole new level now with his own publishing company, Benitez Productions!

Tia is a brilliant and beautiful model that also has become the face of Lady Mechanika. She is a stunning professional model, cosplayer, and alt-model that has worked for sites like Steamgirls and been a guest at countless shows. You’ve likely seen her photos online before, but if not check out her great fan page and give it a like by clicking the link…
