Edmondson and Co. have crafted an action adventure story that leaves the reader spinning frantically to keep up with the twists and turns. While the title is the mystery at the book's core, the thing that drives it is an unrelenting pace set by Edmondson's writing and the brilliant art work of Zonjic.

These guys will both be huge stars, and this is the place to get on board.

Most Graphic Novels, days and days after you've read them, they make less and less sense. Not so with "Who Is Jake Ellis?" This GN makes more and more sense.

Nathan Edmondson's writing is fun and precise, tough when it needs to be, and always original.

Tonci Zonjic's artwork is beautiful, spare, evocative. He has a way with light and shadow that borders on the magical. He tells the story with as few lines and as little detail as possible, and the result is overpowering.

The best GN I've read in years. A whopping 5 Stars for this creative mystery. A harrowing, rambunctious, taut tale. If it were jewelry, it would be brass knuckles made out of a giant flawless diamond.

Mr. Edmondson truly pays attention to every last little detail, in this superbly written action/adventure tale, that will leave you wondering who the heck is Jake Ellis! Is he a guardian angel or simply a figment of Jon's imagination? Also, the artwork is fantastic and fits perfectly with the rest of the story. A must read for action/adventure lovers.

Format: Paperback
Action heroes need a gimmick if they're to stand out in a crowd. The gimmick that underscores Who Is Jake Ellis? is a guardian angel ... or maybe a ghost ... at any rate, an invisible helper named Jake who is watching over Jon Moore, the action hero. Jake even watches Jon when Jon is getting it on with a woman in bed. That's a little creepy, hey?

Anyway, we don't learn until issue 2 who Jon is, or what his job was before the bad guys (or are they the good guys?) started chasing him. At that point the story has a Jason Bourne feel. Jon knows who he is but he doesn't know why the government did whatever it did to him at "the facility" four years earlier. Or maybe it wasn't the government that did whatever was done. The American government might be chasing him, but someone else might also be seeking his capture. Jon has a lot of questions, poor guy. But like Bourne, he knows better than to turn himself in.

The story has something to do with remote viewing but it's actually quite a bit more original than that. More I cannot say without spoiling it, but I can say that the writing is tight and the plot is smart. I think a longer series might have fleshed out the characters a bit more and the ending could have been stronger, but as an action-suspense story without a lot of depth, Who Is Jake Ellis? is reasonably entertaining.

The artwork is fairly conventional but more than adequate. I particularly like the way the panels are colored. Sometimes entire panels are in a single color that changes from panel to panel. Sometimes a panel is colored in different shades of the same color. Those things usually happen in settings (like a nightclub) where the coloring makes sense. The coloring of graphic art isn't usually something that stands out to me but in this case, I was impressed by it.
