    Geek Sushi - Stephen Poferl Oct 1, 2014

    This is an absolute must read book, no exceptions. Only nine issues in and already I consider this to be one of the top ten all-time greatest stories I have ever read in the medium of comics. The first volume is out in trade, so catching up should be a breeze. Plus, this title is only $2.99, a rarity these days to say the least. I cannot recommend this title enough. Do yourself a true favor, and go out and buy this series. Happy reading! Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Dennis Burns Oct 1, 2014

    As impressed as I was by Ada's growth and characterization in this issue, I was equally impressed with Alex's. Alex, we learned last issue, was left by his fianc some time ago. We don't know why and we'll probably never find out. Unfortunately, given Alex's behavior in the past eight issues, his abandonment comes as no real surprise. Having said that, Alex is finally starting to come into his own a bit in this issue. Once again, this is because of a believable and touching growth arc that Luna and Vaughn have been cultivating since the start. Not only is Alex changing, but sentient androids are among the ones driving him towards that change. Consider this exchange: “She's doing exactly what's best for her, and that's exactly why you unlocked her, isn't it?” “It is. You're right. It is.” Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - ToriBee Oct 1, 2014

    Like always though, Luna’s art is simple, yet responsive. Both Alex and Ada find themselves at the end of the issue stumbling across people they perhaps didn’t think they’d come across by choice, and while they are the main storytellers, so much is telling from the other characters as well, that this entire world that’s been created still remains so charming, that readers can’t help but need to know what happens next.

    Ive really enjoyed Alex + Ada for a while now and this issue cemented for me a lot of the things that I love about the series, on a whole. Its so easy to grow and evolve with these characters and thus create an emotional connection to the story being told. This isnt the only comic that unabashedly discusses morals but it may be the best. Thats saying something. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Ross Sweeney Sep 30, 2014

    As weve kept saying over the last few weeks, sci-fi fans are really being spoiled in the comics scene right now, and this is no exception. Its perhaps not quite as essential as other titles that weve been gushing over lately, if only for its relatively niche appeal, but if youre a fan of the likes of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Her, this has precisely the same vein of sci-fi DNA. Beautifully, lyrically told, its almost like my robot nanny is singing me to sleep. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Sep 30, 2014

    Alex + Ada has been one of the most emotionally dramatic tales I've ever seen from a comic. Though Alex's depressive attitude makes some of this issue hard to read, the realistic tone and emotional flair makes it overall a must read. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Marykate Jasper Oct 6, 2014

    Though this wasn't my favorite issue, I still love the touching, lyrical sci-fi of "Alex + Ada." Vaughn and Luna's strong creative vision should carry the series to fascinating places in the months to come. Read Full Review
