In the near future Alex has been gifted with an android. He names her Ada and that’s the start of this graphic novel. Alex is conflicted about “owning” an android and the politics surrounding robots. There’s a huge tragedy alluded to early on and it’s easy to see why people are suddenly very uncomfortable about living their lives with androids.
A few months ago I noticed a lot of people adding this on Goodreads and I’ve always had an interest in robot love stories. No, I love robot love stories. If you’ve read it, you’ll know why I’m choosing a Bellini (specifically this Peach Thyme Bellini) made with La Marca Prosecco ($14) for this pairing. If you haven’t read it yet, pick it up and whip up a batch of Bellinis to get you through the three volumes. They are quick reads and it was announced that issue #15 is the last, so there’s a conclusion.
Book: Alex + Ada (Vols. 1, 2, and 3) by Jonathan Luna and Sarah Vaughn
