Recommended to Anne by: Sam Quixote
Volume 2 continues on in the same tone as volume 1, so if you enjoyed the 1st one, then this probably won't disappoint.
When we last saw Ada, she was just recovering from becoming sentient, and it was hinted at that these two crazy kids would have to face some decisions about the future. However, this one starts off mildly enough with Ada sort of trying everything out, so to speak. Tasting foods, watching water boil, playing video games, deciding on a favorite color, etc..
But after a while Ada g

Alex and Ada - awwwwwww!

I’m not the mushiest guy who goes for romance stories often but - awwwwwww! Seeing Alex and Ada fall in love in this book was so sweet!

Alright, alright, that’s enough!

Set in the near future, life-like androids and service robots have proliferated society. They’ve made life easier but some droids, after becoming sentient, went nuts and started killing humans. Fear has begun to spread amongst the population of these new sentient robots and laws are hurriedly pass

Meh. If you are looking for a squeaky-clean, familiar, reassuring romance story that comes with a cute and perfectly harmless little robot twist, then Alex + Ada should be right up your alley. If, on the other hand, you are looking for a sci-fi story that does more than view the rise of artificial intelligence through rose-colored glasses, I suggest you look elsewhere.

Still a strong 4-star graphic novel. I love the art and the characters, even thought they sometimes make stupid decisions. But they're still my babies, especially Alex. Looking forward to the next volume even though I've heard it's a bit disappointing? We'll see.

3.5 Stars.

Not as good as volume 1 but I still enjoyed it. Instead of getting to go deeper into the characters and story, we just kind of got to stay on the surface. I want more! The story is entertaining and enjoyable but I'm just looking for MORE than the fluff I'm getting.

I think the romance is quite cute though. (view spoiler) I love the grandma, she's hilarious. I really like the graphics and the colouring in this too. I would re

The action definitely picked up in this volume. There's a lot more action and suspense and it perfectly sets up the third and final volume...which I can't wait to pick up and read!

Bullet Review:

How was this just as good as volume 1?! Again, it's that same "formulaic" story of boy-meets-girl, and yet somehow, it's freakin' awesome! We have stellar characters, this intriguing near-future world, and several women! Who have names! Who talk to each other! About things other than men!

Oh, and there are gay people here (who woulda thunk, amirite?!). And it's hinted that some of the robots are trans! And several characters are non-white.

Those last items are really the frosting on

This was a great continuation of everything I enjoyed in the first volume of  the series. The story itself moves much faster, with Alex and Ada deciding what's next for the both of them. Ada slowly learns what her feelings for Alex means and wants to pursue them. Alex has to figure out if he wants a relationship with Ada and how to proceed in a world that has become fearful of the robots that they created. The humor and great dialogue kept me reading and

OK, I may be a little bit obsessed with this graphic novel series... But a humans VS robots scenario? HECK YES!

In this volume, we re-visit Alex and his android girlfriend Ada after the concluding events of volume one. Tensions are running high as an all-out war erupts across the country, with many human owners of androids getting into serious trouble with the law. With family/friend relations at breaking point, both of them must work out the best plans for their future together. This has good re

It has been a while since I've written a review, but it seems graphic novels always seem to evoke the desire to actually say something about what I read.

Sometimes in life you are just in a shithole.

And then sometimes a simple story that relates to all your current feels appears in your hands, and, though it doesn't fix anything in particular, you feel a bit better after reading it.

So, I gave the first volume 5 stars. I gave this 5 stars. I'll probably give the next volume 5 stars. It's not

OK, 3.5+ stars.

Artwork is super clean, and I like it.

Everything is super clean.

Pretty straightforward story, obvious, but works somehow.

Best part of the whole thing? When Alex's buddy who's a war vet explains that a robot soldier saved his life and died doing it, and since then he's realized they're just like humans. That and Ada trusting them.

It's nothing amazing, but a nice break from the usual.

Beautiful. Just as good as the first volume, if not better. How can a story about an AI get me with so much human emotion? And I loved the fact that this volume addressed being your true self and not necessarily what you were born or 'manufactured' to be. Brilliant and I will probably read the third and final volume very soon. ...more

Volume 2, continues the romance and thrills of Alex + Ada.

Sentient Androids have been outlawed along with their owners.

This puts Alex + Ada at risk.

This volume is so beautfiful, it's such a wonderulf interpretation of romance and love. It's very grounded and simplified giving it an eerie romanitc feel.

I am loving and enjoying Alex + Ada graphic novels there are amazing novels with very beautiful graphics designs and Vol. 2 gets better. I don't want to go into any details without being a spoiler, but Vol.2 starts right off where Vol. 1 left off at. And you can see that tensions are rising in this book between humans and robots especially androids that unlock that are free to feel every emotion like a human can. And if a person unlocks androids they will go straight to jail because that is ille ...more
This volume was just okay in my opinion. I didn't feel like anything really important happened and a lot of the scenes felt like filler. I liked volume one so much, maybe I just had too high of expectations going into this one? I really liked the last issue in this volume though, it was awesome. Alex is kind of a boring protagonist though, if I'm being honest. He is more robotic than Ada when it comes to his feelings. ...more

Okay, this was cute. What can I say? I like how this comic focuses in Alex and Ada and their relationship, which amidst all the chaos and danger of the real world and the movement against AI, it's actually really innocent and sweet.
If you enjoyed the first volume I'm sure you'll enjoy this one.

5.5 stars!!!

What is this story about?

After the events of the first volume, Alex has finally unlocked Ada, which means that Ada now has the ability to think for herself. Unfortunately, the government had picked that time to enforce a crackdown on all androids living in the city as they found out that there are some sentient androids running around the city and they will go to great lengths to find each sentient android and punish them. This new crackdown puts Ada in great danger as she ha

WOW! What a great sequel and follow up to volume 1. This is probably my new favorite graphic novel series! It has everything that I was looking for. A wonderful plot, set of characters, art style and pacing. It gets better and better with every page and it is always so action packed. I am really upset that I only have one volume left. I would highly recommend this graphic novel series!

Volume. 2 picks up straight after the ending of Volume. 1 which I really enjoyed and we continue to follow our two main characters Alex and Ada. Alex is a human and Ada is a robot. Alex was given Ada by his grandmother as a birthday present and the world where this is set means that the capabilities of robots are vastly superior to that of our world.

The story continues to grow and expand in this volume with a lot more development on the character of Ada in particular. We get to see her experien
