Alex + Ada Volume 1 by Jonathan Luna and Sarah Vaughn

Really promising series. Alex is your typical guy, he broke up with his girlfriend a while back, he still hasn't moved on. Then for his birthday, his grandma [every cool gift always comes from a grandparent], give him an X5 robot. These are very human like looking and people sometimes use them for you know [at least that's what Alex's grandma uses her's for].

So the story basically follows the dilemma of should robots have freewill to go along with their artificial intelligence and so on. For the beginning of a series it looks interesting, because you start to see that Alex is developing feelings for his robot and then you wonder if given freewill, will Ada [the robot] respond to Alex's feelings.

Personally, I would not give a robot freewill [Skynet anyone], they will turn around and enslave humanity and they will win because they're stronger. These science fiction stories are fun, they always make you think about the rise of the machines.

Rating 3.5 out of 5
