Alex + Ada, Vol. 1

Story by Jonathan Luna & Sarah Vaughn; Illustrated by Jonathan Luna

Set in a future where technology plays a factor in all aspects of everyday life. From making your breakfast, driving you to work, androids have become companions in all aspects of people’s everyday lives.

Then we have Alex. He’s taking his recent breakup kind of hard. Sleepwalking through his days, life is passing him by. His grandmother has had enough and decides to surprise him with a brand new, top-of-the-line model X5 android as a personal companion, named Ada. Alex doesn’t want an android girlfriend that doesn’t have a personality. Alex is forced to decide his feelings about Ada, android rights and if he will unlock her mind… and potentially lose her because of it.

Find out Alex’s decision at YA GRAPHICS LUNA

Nothing Can Possibly Go Wrong

Story by Prudence Shen                  Illustrated by Faith Erin Hicks

It’s hard to see Charlie and Nate as friends. Charlie is the laid-back captain of the basketball team and would-be student body president. Nate is a high-strung nerd and president of the robotics club. When Nate’s club’s budget for going to a robotic competition in DC gets cut to fund new uniforms for the school’s cheerleading team, the race for class president becomes all-important, as it grants the power to decide what to do with the school budget. The campaign quickly turns into a series of pranks that rapidly spirals out of control and both groups are stripped of their funding. A nearby battlebot competition brings the unlikeliest of allies together (the cheerleaders AND the nerds) to get the funding for new uniforms and to cover costs for the trip. Charlie and Nate must work out their issues and pull together to lift their team into the winner’s circle.
