To every action, a reaction. The botched op in Barcelona has exposed Jon, and he is on the run-but from whom, he can't exactly say. As the game of cat and mouse plays out, Jon discovers something about Jake that threatens all of Jon's assumptions about the only man who can protect him from what's coming.

    "Who Is Jake Ellis?" is a top notch crime comic that delivers a little more than you might expect. You need to buy this comic, make no mistake. A raging internal thriller with lots of mystery and just as much action. The further you go the more you'll know, and the more you'll love this book. Read Full Review

    We get to know a little bit more about Jon and his predicament this issue, as well as what happened to him. It seems he used to be a CIA operative, but then there was some time at a facility conducting less than legal remote viewing experiments, a facility that burned down - it seems Jon was the only survivor. He thinks it was a CIA run op, but this issue hes told it wasnt, that he was abducted and someone else was running it but if its true, who was doing it and why? For what purpose So we get a tease about whats going on, and some action, but this issue does feel a little repetitive. Stretching for time, perhaps? Still, the European style noir tinged art by Zonjic remains very good, and really shines in the opening action sequence. An intriguing mystery, it just has a few narrative hiccups. Read Full Review

    IGN - Feb 23, 2011

    Zonjic's work in this issue is phenomenal though, fully realizing the tone that Edmondson is attempting. His work is deceptively simple and uses very little in the way of line detail. Instead, he opts for thick inks and a predominantly gray color palette that tosses in a bright primary color every so often to give the colors a sense of angularity. If the series can make an upward swing in more creative storytelling, Who Is Jake Ellis? could wind up being an enjoyable and visually slick government thriller. Read Full Review
