Where is Jake Ellis? #1 is, first and foremost, a mystery comic. Or an action comic. Or a spy comic. You know what? Whatever it is, is for you to decide, but it’s clear that it IS one thing – very entertaining.

Nathan Edmondson is great at writing this type of comic. Now, as stated above, it’s very hard to place this comic into ONE single genre. If I had a gun to my head, I’d have to classify it as a spy/espionage thriller, along the vein of James Bond or Jason Bourne. But, this comic is a LOT more than that. There’s mysteries at every single turn of the page, and more action in this one issue than in the last four issues of Avengers that I’ve read. My only problem with the comic is that if you haven’t read the first miniseries, Who is Jake Ellis?, you’re going to be pretty lost. There are a couple of recap pages, but I’m afraid they just don’t do the first series justice or prepare you for what you’re about to read. Hopefully readers who pick up this issue will be compelled to pick up the Who is Jake Ellis trade, and I think they will. Beyond that, this comic is fantastic. Loads of action, fun, and just a good, solid comic.
