Collects Alex + Ada #11-15.

Review: Well that was a delightful experience. Alex + Ada is a story that can easily mirror some current events like legalizing gay marriage and rights for immigrants. While it shouldn't take a story about an android to make us understand these things, I think Alex + Ada does a great job of making us question what makes someone human and the validity of certain relationships. There were parts of this particular volume that I saw coming, but it still drove the story home. It's also a good story about love and what you are willing to risk for that love. There were some parts that I wish were explained a bit more, but if you're looking for a short, sweet comic series, I would highly recommend this one.
