Jake Ellis Returns to Image Comics

Where is Jake Ellis #1

Where is Jake Ellis was one of my favorite surprises of 2011. It was inventive, fast-paced, and had me guessing all the way until the end. When the last issue was published I sat there yelling, “That’s it???? You can’t end it there!” Luckily, Nathan Edmondson and Tonci Zonjic are back with more adventures of the enigmatic hitman!

WHO IS JAKE ELLIS?, the Image Comics series by Nathan Edmondson and Tonci Zonjic received an Eisner Award nomination for Best Limited Series. And now the taut, intense thriller that explores identity and consciousness is back with a much-anticipated sequel.

WHERE IS JAKE ELLIS?, a new series starting in November, delves deeper in the mystery of Jake Ellis and how he became linked to super-spy Jon Moore’s consciousness. In WHO IS JAKE ELLIS?, Jake and Jon infiltrated “The Facility,” where Jon was transformed from a CIA analyst into a field agent who can predict almost every move of his targets—thanks to Jake Ellis, a man who can see everything but whom only Jon can see.

The second JAKE ELLIS volume picks up a year after the end of the first, with Jon Moore in hiding from his past—and The Facility. But these are the people who created him—and Jake Ellis—and they won’t be an easy tail to shake. Soon Jon is in their crosshairs once again, and he will need Jake Ellis to survive. Now Jon has two missions: stop The Facility, and find a man that no one else can see.

Nathan Edmondson is pleased to return to the world of JAKE ELLIS. “Tonci and I had more story in mind when we conceived WHO IS JAKE ELLIS?, and this is it,” he said.

Zonjic’s art on JAKE ELLIS perfectly balances mood and action, color and shadow, creating environments and characters that are deceptively simple and all the more effective because of it.

“We’ve grown together as creators,” continued Edmondson. “And we’re more than thrilled to walk Jon Moore and Jake Ellis back into the pages of an Image Comics book and into the hands of readers.”

Where is Jake Ellis? is a five-issue, full-color mini-series published by Image Comics. The first issue will be in stores on November 14th.
