Alex + Ada

I’ve enjoyed everything I’ve read by the Luna Brothers, and although Alex + Ada is by just one of them (Jonathan Luna, along with Sarah Vaughan), it does feel like a proper Luna joint. It’s a near-future tale of a man who receives a lifelike android companion, and then proceeds to give it (her) sentience. I’d started by reading the trade paperback that collects the first 5 issues a while back, and kept meaning to continue with the series but never got around to it. I finally went and read the rest of the series (it ends with issue 15) and I was really wowed by it, reading it all in one sitting, not able to stop. It’s a beautiful (although not without tension) tale, with an ending that felt very satisfying.
