Review: Alex + Ada, Vol. 1 by Jonathan Luna

This story follows Alex, a human that lives in a world where is it common for people to live alongside robots.
These robots are there to help in any way to make life easier for humans.

We read only from Alex’s perspective, which I found to be really disappointing. He felt like a very bland character and I didn’t like that his facial expressions almost never changed.

But when he did feel something (mostly sadness), he started to remind me of Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s character in (500) Days of Summer. Meaning that he’s very selfish and not a romantic role model. Maybe that was the goal?
I just didn’t feel for him at all.

I’m kind of upset that this graphic novel left no real impression on me, I’d been really looking forward to it.

2/5 stars
