    Alex + Ada continues to be an emotionally gripping tale, proving that you don't need excitement to make a gripping tale. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Zac Thompson Aug 6, 2014

    I love a book that provides a lot to talk about. Some books are flashy and pretty but when they are done you aren't left with much more than a tingle and a satisfied sigh. Like a rollercoaster they can be fun and they can control your emotions for a short time but in the end they don't really mean much. This is not that kind of book. This is a book you can reflect on, draw from, this is a book that inspires. More and more I'm really impressed with this series and this issue is definitely a high point. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Jordan Richards Aug 7, 2014

    Alex + Ada #8 is a solid, but slow issue of the series. It remains a comic that's really does not work well following it issue to issue due to its snail pace and decompression, but the character and subtle writing is almost strong enough to overcome this problem. Recommended, but I do recommend waiting for the trade to check the entire story out. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Joel Raivid Aug 6, 2014

    This issue really succeeds on an emotional level and I was left shocked and wanting more. This series is definitely in the midst of a great part of the story and it can really go either way, but based on what has come before this, I have no doubts that the next few issues are going to be just as dramatic and thought provoking while being a truly gripping series.

    Capeless Crusader - Cody Mudge Aug 5, 2014

    “Alex + Ada #8″ is a great piece that fits perfectly into the story so far but its quality is very much balanced upon your past appreciation of the series and your future intention to continue reading. Since I have loved the series from the first issue and plan to see it through to its conclusion, this was a very satisfying read. It addresses some of the deep questions I've been asked myself since I started reading the series, heralding back memories of the first time I readI, Robot by Isaac Asimov. This installment also succeeds on an emotional level as we achieve a hitherto unsurpassed level of drama between the two protagonists. This is a series at the peak of its story-telling powers and it successfully envelops the reader on many different levels. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Adam Kelly Aug 6, 2014

    This was definitely one of my favorite issues of Alex + Ada. At some points it's been great, at others very disappointing, but I'm hoping these last few issues hit their stride and really deliver. If this issue is any clue towards the last few issues we'll definitely be in for a few surprises. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng Aug 11, 2014

    "Alex + Ada" #8 is uneven and misses a step in the dance, but the action turns another major corner. The series as a whole is definitely still worth following to the end. Read Full Review
