Alex + Ada vol 2

I wanted to post a quick note about the 44th book I’ve read this year, volume 2 of Alex + Ada by Jonathan Luna and Sarah Vaughn. This graphic novel continues the story of Alex, a young man who received an android as a gift (named Ada) and chose at the end of volume one to unlock her AI and allow her to be sentient. In this volume Alex and Ada are wrestling with how to relate to each other now that she doesn’t belong to him while in the wider world tensions are growing between humans and robots in the wake of several violent attacks. The artwork and the story continue to be very good in this second volume as the story explores questions about technology, human rights (even for non-humans), and romance. I’m continuing to enjoy this story and expect I will get the third volume at some point as well.
