    Geekality - Julius Freeman Nov 15, 2012

    This is by far one of the best action comics in the market today. When I read it, it felt I was watching a Hollywood blockbuster film only ten times better. Tonci Zonjic's artwork compliments Edmonson's script. Zonjic's art reminds me of the late Edvin Biukovich who drew the Human Target with Peter Milligan years ago. Zonjic's work is glossy, suave, and ambitious, which makes it extremely pleasing to the eye. Let's not forget Nathan Edmonson's technique to tell a story of such high octane caliber.

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Nov 14, 2012

    Edmondson pretty much owns the spy/military genre in comics and this series is back with vengeace. It’s a pretty spectacular issue that reads very quickly due to the high intensity that’s there from beginning to end. If you missed out on the first series, no harm, no foul; even if you skip the recap the storytelling is still strong enough to cue you in to everything that’s happening so there is no excuse not to pick this issue up.

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Nov 14, 2012

    The premise that Edmondson created has been expounded on in this next chapter of the story. What was once the simple case of a man who listens to a little voice in his head has been cracked wide open and turned into a government science conspiracy story unlike I've ever seen. If you're looking for a comic that thinks hard, hits harder, and will keep you guessing until the end, then it's time for you to ask, "Where is Jake Ellis?" Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Nov 15, 2012

    My favorite part of this series is the role reversal Edmondson employs to shake up the story. The first time around, it was Moore who looked and acted like a regular joe only to be aided by the enigmatic Ellis. Here, Moore has taken on the man-of-mystery role, and Jake is the one who's more vulnerable and down to earth. It's even reflected in how their appearances have changed. The disembodied, dark figure of Jake Ellis in the first series always appeared to be bald, while Jon had a regular hair of normal brown hair. Now, Moore's the one with the shaved head, and Jake is sporting a mop of unkempt, brown locks. It's interesting to see how much more removed from the "real" world Moore has become while Ellis's hospitalization has brought him a step or two closer to it. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Therapy - Ryan Rodriguez Nov 18, 2012

    "Where is Jake Ellis" bears the omnipresence of a controlled society of "Eagle Eye", and the constant action and uncertainty of "Bourne" series, with a splash of "Cast Away" that is certain to wind readers as well as force them to speed read through the issue. These may appear to be demeaning traits, but they are far from that. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Aaron Duran Nov 15, 2012

    I'm warning readers right now: Where is Jake Ellis #1 is not for newcomers. Nathan Edmondson and Tonci Zonjic make a small attempt to bring newbies up to speed, but you're better served to read the first collection and come back. And you better, because this is one heck of a setup. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Jamil Scalese Nov 16, 2012

    Where is Jake Ellis? #1 utilizes the momentum from a crafty idea and the first part of the second arc is executed well in terms of collaboration. It's not a page turner, it's a page absorber; a comic book I find myself staring at, getting lost in art and concept. A righteous start to the sequel, and fun series overall.    Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Nov 14, 2012

    "Where is Jake Ellis?" #1 is a triumphant return by Edmondson and Zonjic to the property they created together last year. I'd forgotten just how much I loved this comic, but I won't make that same mistake again. This is definitely a sequel that was worth waiting for. Read Full Review

    Despite my praises about this first issue having colourful characters & wall to wall excitement, I was still a little disappointed by its confusing plot elements. Like the title says “Where is Jake Ellis?” where indeed? Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Elijah Williams Nov 18, 2012

    I'll level with you, dear reader, if you are a fan of Who Is Jake Ellis? then definitely pick this up or at least give it a look, though at the $3.50 price tag I would just wait for the trade. If you are a new comer, then do not bother, you will leave the book confused and off put. Read Full Review
