Women and guns are common elements in pop culture, and Joe Benitez takes that simple concept one step further by combining the two and tossing it into the Victorian era, resulting in these hot steampunk vixen illustrations. Geeks everywhere are no doubt salivating over how all their favorite things have collided to form comic book images that cater specifically to their eclectic interests.
These Joe Benitez renderings are a part of his comic series entitled Lady Mechanika. It follows the tale of a woman with amnesia who must figure out how she came to own a pair of mechanical arms, a set of augmented eyes and other mysterious organs. Beginning its publication in 2010, Lady Mechanika is continuing to garner more and more readers thanks largely in part to the fantastical designs of its characters.
