No GravatarAlex Ada Issue 3

Issue #3 of Alex + Ada came out this week – January 15, 2014 to be exact.  Alex + Ada is written by Jonathan Luna and Sarah Vaughn with the art and cover done by Jonathan Luna.  The series is published by Image Comics.  As seen in my previous review of this series, I have been skeptical, but this issue has me somewhat excited for what’s to come.

In this issue, Alex grapples with feeling like something is missing from Ada (his android), as if she is too “robotic.”  I can’t say I blame him as Ada, at the moment, comes off as too aiming to please anything he asks.  It’s a bit eerie.  Alex begins searching for ways to deal with this problem and upon the end of the issue starts looking for answers in a group called the “Degrees of Freedom.”

Although I am still waiting for more from this series, this issue has gotten me more interested in what will happen with Alex and Ada.  It’s stepping away from that “been there, done that” feeling and making the premise its own.  I give this issue a C+ as it has improved from the first two issues, but it still leaves something to be desired.

Issue #4 of Alex + Ada will be out on February 12, 2014.

Alex + Ada is a new series that has two issues out at the moment.  The third issue will be coming out this month on January 15, 2014.  Jonathan Luna and Sarah Vaughn came together for this new series and Image Comics is the publisher.

Alex + Ada is the story of a lonely guy that seems to be stuck in this rut in life.  The guy is Alex.  His grandmother buys him an android, that he names Ada.  He seems to be intrigued by the prospect of spending time with Ada, but in these two issues, it hasn’t gone far beyond that.

My primary issue with this series is how similar its premise is to Chobits (an anime and manga series).  With these first two issues, I cannot help but think “been there, done that.”  I’ll hold out to see where this series goes since you shouldn’t judge a comic book series by one or two issues, but I’m cautious at the moment.
