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.

I went to my new public library in the city I just moved to for college, and they have a HUGE selection of comics and graphic novels. My roommate loves this series, so I decided to give it a try.

I like the idea of this; I love sci-fi, but the art style is very strange and it’s going to take some getting used to. The concept and plot is quite interesting, but there’s just something about it that is strange to me.

Graphic novels have always been hard for me to review because they’re a completely different format than I’m used to, but I’m excited to read the second and third books in this series. I think I’m giving this 3 stars because I’m a little iffy about it right now. I think it could be really good, but I don’t know yet.

This is about a guy named Alex. He talks to his grandma a lot, and she has an android who she loves. She decides to get him one for his birthday so then he can be happy, but Alex feels guilty about getting one. He goes and gets it to be more like a human. He names her Ada, and he starts to have feelings for her. I’m not sure about it yet, but I am anxious to see what happens next…

Kinda confused, but also realizing it’s happily confused.
