There's nothing like a good mystery. Here, the reader and the main characters, are trying to figure out the mystery at the same time. By the books end we do get some answers but the door is definitely left open for more resolution. The art was a bit rough at times but fits the action. The story could have been fleshed out more but the book was very good.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

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.Was this review helpful?
