Lady Mechanika: La Dama de la Muerte (2017) Joe Benitez, M. M. Chen, Peter Steigerwald, Beth Sotelo, Beth Sotelo

Lady Mechanika La Dama de la MuerteSet in Mexico in 1869

This is set outside of the regular series, and was published the same year as the third volume, The Lost Boys of West Abbey. I actually don’t know what year (in steampunk time) the main series is set, aside from the late 1800s.

Lady Mechanika has traveled to Mexico, simply wandering and at a loss as to what to do with herself. I blind man tells her to go to Santa Catrina, where she might find healing. What she discovers is a village celebrating la Día de los Muertos.

As Día de los Muertos is one of my favorite holidays, how could I not help but be immediately drawn into the story.

However, please be aware that this story is about grief and death and mourning and vengeance.
