    We The Nerdy - Joel Raivid Jun 17, 2014

    The final act of the issue is where the pace picks up nicely and leads us to the cliff-hanger of this months issue. Alex and Ada are invited to dinner with Alexs grandmother and her robot, Daniel, and upon arrival we are treated to a great few panels where Ada and Daniel meet which I truly laughed out loud. The detail of the art in the second to last panel of the page is a real credit to the art team as the emotions of these characters play a huge part in the overall narrative of this book and this detail along with the dialogue is the reason I did laugh so hard. There are some nice reveals during the meal but upon conclusion of the meal we have the cliff-hanger we are always waiting for at the end of the issue, and this one was a good one and changes the game completely which makes me excited to see what direction the creative team take from here.

    Big Comic Page - Ross Sweeney Jun 17, 2014

    Still an understated gem of a series, the denouement of this issue leaves us in a narratively complex place – gauntlets have been thrown down by the man, and now that were fully rooting for our leading man and fembot, its a daunting prospect going forward. Quite how itll play out is anyones guess: I for one, here and now, raise a glass to the new robot revolution. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Adam Kelly Jun 18, 2014

    I liked the few changes of setting-although that might not seem like much in other books, this one focuses a lot on Alex and Ada at their house, so it almost feels as if you've been cooped up in there with them. That part could be a good or bad thing depending on how you see the book, but things are really starting to heat up and I can't wait to see how the rest of the story unfolds. Read Full Review

    If you arent reading this book, I recommend picking up the trade when it drops July 16th. The first few issues feel like a bit of a drag, and dont go out of the way to introduce many fresh ideas, but it is evident by this issue that there is a real threat and things will progress in unexpected directions. If youre looking for a departure typical action titles, I highly recommend this series. Read Full Review

    Exposed weaknesses aside, "Alex + Ada" #7 is a smart and very cool book telling a supremely engaging story that moves well despite being technically rather decompressed. We've all read stories that mine similar territory to "Alex + Ada," but never quite like this. Luna and Vaughn have already proven that they have something interesting to say, and with time they might even be headed towards legitimately insightful. Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - Ian Mondrick Jun 19, 2014

    Alex + Ada scores major points for fighting upstream against the current of hyper-violence coursing through indie comics. A unique and endearing romance story, it's only failing is being a bit too self-indulgent. A tidy end to the limited series will make this a must-read for futurists and romantics alike.
