Welcome to Mechani-Con! The tabloids dubbed her « Lady Mechanika, » the sole survivor of a psychotic serial killer’s three-year rampage through London. Found locked in an abandoned laboratory amidst countless corpses and body parts, with her own limbs amputated and replaced with mechanical components, her life began anew. With no memory of her captivity or her former life, Lady 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 has never stopped searching for answers… Lady Mechanika’s investigation of the Mechanical Girl has lead her to a band of traveling gypsies. But their aid may not come soon enough as Mechani-Con has arrived, along with Lord Blackpool and his astounding machines.
