Joe Benitez took to Facebook on Wednesday and mentioned his Aspen Comics and now self-published comic book Lady Mechanika is being looked at by a cable channel for a tv show.
Beneitez doesn’t go into details about which network or potentially how far in the process it is but from his own reportthe book is being eyed for a cable show.
The main character and series first appears in Lady Mechanika #0 – The Demon of Satan’s Alley. Lady Mechanika has been a relatively hard to find series as the Issue 1 shot up in value a few years back. The small print run and fan base led to the books disappearing quickly and going back for reprints, which were also difficult to find. The book itself, was born out of Joe Beneitez’s convention experiences and admiration for steampunk cosplayers. Long time colorist for Michael Turner, Peter Steigerwald is credited as co-creator of the series.
