The last thing in the world Alex wanted was an X5, the latest in realistic androids. But after Ada is dropped into his life, he discovers she is more than just a robot. Alex takes a huge risk to unlock Ada so she can think for herself and explore life as a sentient android. As Alex and Ada spend more time together, they become closer. But as restrictions tighten on artificial intelligence, Ada feels unsure about her place in the world, and Alex questions being with an android.
In this final arc, Alex and Ada struggle against the growing hatred for sentient robots and their human allies. Can they survive what’s around the corner?
3 out of 5 stars
The final installment to the Alex + Ada graphic novel series… I liked this one more than the others because it felt like there was a little more plot, but I still didn’t love it. I wanted to be blown away, and I was slightly disappointed.
Alex and Ada have to run away in order to be safe, then Ada gets hurt, and Alex goes to jail for 25 years.
The thing with graphic novels, for me, is that there’s not a ton of plot! Maybe it’s just these, but I wasn’t blown away. I didn’t feel like there was anything spectacularly special about this series. The art style was, again, very strange, and there wasn’t a ton of character development throughout the series.
I would consider reading some of the graphic novels that are published by this same publisher, but I probably wouldn’t read any more by these authors specifically. It was hard to get really connected to because there wasn’t much going on.
