    Geeked Out Nation - Jess Camacho Jun 17, 2015

    “Alex + Ada” #15 is the ending we all deserved as fans of the series but more importantly, it's the perfect ending the story deserved. Vaughn and Luna cement this as one of the greatest romance stories told in comics thank to this finale that leaves you feeling full closure. I desperately hope we get a hardcover collection of the entire series so that this can be enjoyed by more people for years to come. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Eric Switzer Jun 17, 2015

    "Alex + Ada" is a joy in that it introduce a new social struggle, one that parallels the kind of civil rights issues we have had throughout our nation's history. One that we may likely face in the future. And though it is almost a lifetime for the characters, "Alex + Ada" delivers cathartic social change in just 15 issues. And like modern successful social rights campaigns, it focuses on an individual to represent a population. This series sold me on a position for a completely imaginary debate. And the more I think about it the more I see the contemporary consequences."Alex + Ada" is not a perfect story. Structurally I had a lot of issues with the pacing and story design; it sacrificed a lot of itspotential to be a lot more emotionally engaging and win over readers. But at the end this was an incredibly sincere and personal series. It inspire many conversations, hypothetical or otherwise, between my friends and I. There isn't much out there like Read Full Review

    Big Glasgow Comic Page - Mario Jun 18, 2015

    Bumper sized last issue of the sci-fi romance story. Fast tracking the story, touching on major plot points, incredible art and a killer last page. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Daniel Gehen Jun 19, 2015

    Despite these strong social themes, at its core,Alex + Ada remains a love story, and that love story takes center stagein the final act. When the titular couple is eventually reunited, the reader is put through a gambit of emotions.Even an android will find it difficult to close the final page with dry eyes. It may have flown under the radar compared to other Image titles, butAlex + Ada is as good as comics can get. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Jun 17, 2015

    While this works as theme for this final issue, it is also handled in a clunky way at times. Of course with Ada being a robot there are some technical aspects of her consciousness which are a bit mysterious when it comes to how she loves and how she stores her emotions. As the issue begins to get into a bit of virtual psychology it loses some of its steam from a story telling standpoint, even if the theme itself is spot on. This makes this final issue a bit of a mixture, both doing the overall series justice but also failing a bit to reach the same height as its predecessors. It wraps up the series in a way that we could expect, only not quite telling the full story that was there to be told. Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Marcus Orchard Jun 17, 2015

    Alex + Ada #15 ends the series gracefully. Most will be sad to see this story go after only fifteen issues, but it was plenty of time to tell the story of these two characters. Every character got some sort of ending and the issue succeeds at providing closure for readers. This series will go down as one of the best love stories in comic book history. Those who have not yet given it a try should do themselves a favor and finally pick up this series. Read Full Review

  • 7.0 - John McCubbin Jun 17, 2015

    Alex + Ada #15 may not be the ending this fan was hoping for, but it was befitting our two main characters. Displaying wonderful emotion, and powerful symbolism, this will leave long term readers more than happy, even if there's a huge chunk of slow narrative to get there. Read Full Review
