"Though this is a fairly classic sci-fi storyline, Luna and Vaughn's sensitive plot and careful pacing keep it exciting,especially as they strip away preconceived notions and use the tale to examinethe complexities of what it is to be human. Luna's spare illustrations match theplot perfectly, particularly his ability to bring nuance and feeling to facesrendered in a very simple style. Fans of Brian K.

Androids! Futuristic technology! Social commentary! Forbidden love! I picked up all three volumes of Alex + Ada at once, and ending up reading them back-to-back because I was so invested in the story! This series shines in regards to the story--which is more akin to watching a sci-fi TV show. I originally found the art style a little simplistic, but it grew on me as the series continued, and in the end, I found it charming. Now I just wish I had my own flying robot butler.
