Alex + Ada Explores Love, Life, & Androids in the Near-Future
After three years away from comics, Jonathan Luna is back, drawing and co-writing Alex + Ada with Sarah Vaughn. In this near-future tale, Alex is attempting to recover from a setback in his life and return to normal. Ada, a Tanaka X5 and the latest and greatest model of companion android, comes into his life. She lives to serve, as long as her programming allows it, but does he want to be served?
The world of Alex + Ada gives us a glimpse of what our own future may be like. It features a thriving robotics industry, alarm clocks that are floating holographic displays, breakfast served by floating robots, and normal human beings who are able to control their home electronics with a thought. Vaughn says that readers can expect “drama, humor, love, loss, and more robots than you can shake a stick at” in the series.
Alex + Ada #1 will be in stores on November 6 and can be pre-ordered from the September issue of Previews (SEP130479).
