JOE BENITEZ will be signing LADY MECHANIKA comics at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Friday November 6th from 6 – 7pm.
The tabloids dubbed her “Lady Mechanika“, the sole survivor of a mad scientist’s horrific experiments that left her with mechanical limbs. Having no memory of her captivity or her former life, Mechanika eventually built a new life for herself as a private detective, using her unique abilities to solve cases the police couldn’t or wouldn’t handle. But she never stopped searching for the answers to her own past.
Set in turn of the century England, a time when magic and superstition clashed with new scientific discoveries and inventions, Lady Mechanika is about a young woman’s search for her own identity as she solves other mysteries involving science and the supernatural.
Joe Benitez is an American comic book artist who has worked on such titles as Titans (DC Comics), Magdalena (Image Comics), and Soulfire (Aspen Comics). He is also the creator of the modern fantasy Wraithborn and the steampunk series Lady Mechanika.

Scan to Black is an exhibition of original published comic book art by illustrator, V. Ken Marion.
Marion is one of the hottest rising stars of the comic book industry. He has worked on a number of titles as monthly penciller on Extermination (Boom! Studios) and Fathom: The Elite mini-series (Aspen Comics). Marion is the current monthly artist for Soulfire (Aspen Comics).
Marion’s artwork is influenced by the school of Jim Lee and closely reminiscent of Michael Turner’s style. Marion is known for beautiful portraits of women and his tightly penciled pages.
The term “scan to black” in the comic industry describes the process of scanning finished pencils and then converting them digitally to black without the use of an inker. This process usually requires finished pencils to be tight, clean, and clear. The result are beautiful renditions that bring an elegance to the comic-illustration genre and reflect a recent trend in the industry.
The opening and Comic Signing event are FREE and open to the public on Sunday, March 30, 2014 from 4:00 till 6:00 pm.
Pushkin Creperie Bakery is located at 541 Myrtle Avenue near the campus of Pratt Institute (between Steuben and Emerson Sts., across from the Pratt Store).
This event is sponsored by the Brooklyn Art Review.
