Hinges Vol. 3: Mechanical Men by Meredith McClaren

She's lost Bauble and almost doesn't have the strength to go on.  The young man they saved won't let her mope and die, though.  He makes her get up and they back to the city...

Image Comics sent me a copy of this graphic novel to read for review (thank you).  It has been published now.

This is the third and last in this series and this one tied everything together for me.  Orio is not sure of her purpose in life but she's willing to give it a go.  Bauble was more than a pet to her, he was her friend and he helped her.  But all she can do is keep on and hope she may find him again.

The city has changed.  The new leader has made everyone suspicious.  They are turning people in for perceived wrongs and he's happy with that.  He intends to use the mechanical men to keep everyone in line.  Orio has to figure out a way to stop him.

With her friends, paper tigers, and Bauble back again, it's a fight to the end.  This story was exciting, interesting, a bit beyond understanding but a satisfying read.  Things are going to get back to normal.  Or maybe there might be more to the story in the future.  Who knows?
