I'll start talking about the cover, which is what caught my attention and that's why I read the synopsis and buy it. The cover seems minimalist but accurate because at the end you realize that this cover is the whole plot of this first volume. Regarding the plot, at first I found it a bit slow, I do not know if what I adapted to this type of reading. But when it appears Ada everything changes and becomes more fluid history. In fact from the arrival of Ada kept me intrigued and when the end of thevolume, I needed to have the volume 2 in my hands.
This graphic novel puts us in a futuristic world where robots are the order of the day. However these robots with some modifications may have the ability to think for themselves. What causes fear in some and causing others to resort to illegal means to grant their robots control of his actions and thoughts. This aspect for some reason reminds me of all rights struggles that have been unleashed in history. Because there are always those who oppose, those in favor and there are always tragedies to achieve at that fight. And that exactly is unleashed in this graphic novel only thing here would be for the rights of robots.
A peculiarity that caught my tension, and I would not bother to be created in the future, is that just by thinking things can turn on/off, make calls, search the Internet, among other things. When I realized that detail had a "mind blowing", thinking about the possibilities of this.
As for the illustration, it is a great job, detailed and realistic. I love the drawings of people and robots are very real, very vivid. It seems almost that you were watching cartoons on TV.
I really like it
I heard that Alex + Ada was great, but I did not expect to love it as much as I did! Alex was so sweet and I loved getting the story from his point of view. The venture to turn Ada sentient was very intriguing. I was immediately hooked on this graphic novel. The story flowed easily, Jonathan Luna’s artwork is absolutely beautiful, and I can’t wait for Volume 2 and 3. Especially after seeing Alex start to develop feelings for Ada… the hopeless romantic in me was dying for something to spark between them. The only issue I did have with this volume was Alex’s relationship with his grandma… it was both cute and a little weird.
Overall, this graphic novel is definitely stepping up to the plate here. I’m currently obsessing over it. It’s not action packed or super quick paced, but something about it all is so real and I really enjoyed it.
There's mall jokes - mostly eighth grade humor (do you find a sex-crazed grandmother hysterical, this book is for you) - but nothing laugh out loid funny.
The motivations of Alex are underwhelming, and he's not too interesting as a character. And Ada has no personality,yet.
The world the graphic novel is built in is the only interesting part. Post-fallout, after an AI became aware and attacked and killed humans. Now sentient thought is feared and illegal...
Can't believe there will only be 15 issues! Nooooooooo I want more!!
