Capitalizing on growing interest in stories about artificial intelligence in the wake of the sleeper hit Her, Image Comics has announced second printings for the second, third, and fourth issues of their eerie series Alex + Ada.


Alex + Ada is Hardwired for Success:
Issues #s 2, 3, and 4 all slated for a second printing

Jonathan Luna’s (Girls, The Sword, Ultra) and Sarah Vaughn’s (Sparkshooter) Alex + Ada is going back to press for issues #2, #3, and #4. For those just discovering Alex + Ada, it is easy to jump in from the beginning of the series, as the second printing of issue #1 is still in stock and available to order. Fans of the movie Her will be immediately drawn to this haunting and visceral science fiction story that explores what makes us human—and worthy of love.
The last thing in the world Alex wanted was an X5, the latest in realistic androids. But when Ada is dropped into his life, his feelings begin to change.
Praise for Alex + Ada:
“Luna and Vaughn have taken what could have been a derivative story about androids and the humans who love them and turned it into a promising debut.”
—Melissa Grey, IGN
“The cliffhanger in Alex + Ada is excellent, and I’m hard pressed to imagine a reader that wouldn’t be intrigued enough to come back for issue two to see exactly where Luna and Vaughn plan to take this story. On the whole ‘Alex + Ada #1’ is simply an excellent start to an exciting new book.”
—Kelly Thompson, Comic Book Resources
“A great comic should be the marriage of writing and art in service of the story, and Alex + Ada is a book that is burrowing its way into our hearts thanks to two creators working in lockstep. Try this book out for size. You might just find your new favorite book.”
—David Harper, Multiversity Comics
“Vaughn and Luna make this far more than it seems and you can see the inner struggle Alex is going through with life and the fact that he now has a lifelike female android, without that message being pounded over your head. This is definitely an intriguing story that we’ll be keeping our eye on.”
—Tony Guerrero, ComicVine
Alex + Ada #2, #3, and #4 have completely sold out at the distributor level, but may still be available in comic stores. They are currently available digitally on the Image Comics website ( and the official Image Comics iOS app, as well as on Comixology on the web (, iOS, Android, and Google Play.
