“Poor is the pupil who does not surpass his master.” – Leonardo da Vinci

From creators Paul Allor (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) and Chris Evenhuis (Wynonna Earp) comes this swashbuckling adventure story about war, identity and the birth of the modern world!

AfterShock Comics is a perfect fit for MONSTRO MECHANICA according to creator Allor, “AfterShock has very quickly made a name for itself as a place for compelling, character-driven comics that aren’t afraid to try new things. As a creator, who wouldn’t want to be a part of that? Add in the chance to work with an editor like Mike Marts, who’s worked on some of my favorite comics of the last two decades, and it was an absolute no-brainer. We’re thrilled to be working with AfterShock!”

A new series starring Leonardo da Vinci,
his female apprentice and their wooden robot!

At the height of the Renaissance, warring factions vie for control of Leonardo da Vinci’s destructive arsenal. The only thing standing in their way is Leonardo’s young apprentice and her nine-foot tall mechanical bodyguard. Together, they navigate a world of wicked men and war machines, determined to save Leonardo from the world—and the world from Leonardo!


It goes without saying that a new AfterShock title should be on your pull list, but as Allor explains, it’s packed with so much goodness, it’s a story you won;t want to miss.

“Monstro Mechanica is a swashbuckling adventure story, filled with humor, pathos and giant wooden robots, that has something to say about humanity and society,” said the creator. “It’s also incredibly fun, and filled with absolutely gorgeous art. You’re going to love it!”

I’m a great fan of Leonardo Da Vinci, and I browse any fanart I can find about him. Once I found some cool Da Vinci-type Iron Man designs, and that’s how I knew of artist Axel Medellin. I’ve been following his work, and it turns out he has been developing a comic book series with lots of wood robots, and a female protagonist who turns out to be Da Vinci’s daughter. I wonder if the creators of this story are familiar with his work beforehand?

It’s quite possible. I know many creators who will go to great lengths for research and details and to ensure the story hasn’t been done before.
