Alex + Ada is a 15-issue SF/Romance series set in the near future. Several years before the beginning of the series the world’s first sentient AI was constructed and immediately went on a violent rampage. Following this all sentient AI were outlawed, although advanced non-sentient AI robots are prevalent.

The series follows a man, Alex, who is given such a non-sentient AI as a birthday present. Deeply unsatisfied with its lack of—for want of a better word—humanity, he sets on a course of action which leads him to “jailbreak” the robot, allowing it to achieve sentience. The series follows Alex and his now self-aware robot, Ada, as they navigate the perils of romance amid fear, violence, and deep-seated prejudice.

Our hosts for this episode are Tobiah Panshin, Brant Gillihan-Eddy, Kit DeForge, Kayleigh Fleeman, Joe Preti, and Cade Reynolds. On our next episode we will be reading Deadpool, by Joe Kelly, #1-16.
