|Alex + Ada #5|
Now, all of that makes this issue sound rather action packed, although don't let appearances deceive you. However, the lack of action does not make this book any less enjoyable, in fact it probably makes it more so. Since the beginning, Alex + Ada has, essentially, stripped any other aspect you would find within a sci-fi comic (and it could be loosely categorised as that), focusing solely on the interactions between and emotions of characters. No more on show is that focus than in this issue, as Alex and Ada bare their souls out to each other in order to come to terms with what is happening.

story isn't over yet!
This issue is very much the end of a first act as Ada's journey from appliance to individual is resolved so touchingly while leaving options open to continue the tale. However, even without further entries, this issue would have capped off the tale so well that further installments would have been demanded anyway (certainly by me). If there is one book on my pull list that could have picked up this week, I'm always so glad it's Alex + Ada, everything else is just paling by comparison.
