It is an honour well deserved. Art is by Tonci Zonjic, who has come on leaps and bounds since his pretty good work on Marvel Divas. The use of colour in this book is amazing, with lots of bold sections of primary colours against an otherwise grey palette.
The story is by Nate Edmondson, whose book The Activity has begun recently at Image. I'll probably have a look at issue #1 over the weekend.
As for Who is Jake Ellis itself, it's a five part mini series, about a former CIA analyst (Jon Moore) on the run from Americans and other groups, hiding out in Europe and doing criminal work.
This is Jon Moore. He's a man of action
Now, that scene didn't make total sense; Jon's answers don't match up with the other man's questions. And why is he giving commentary about "I'm moving quickly!" in the middle of his getaway?
Let's have another look at it.
That is Jake Ellis. Jake Ellis lives in Jon's head.
Jake Ellis tells Jon what to do.
The book is a dynamic, exciting one. It's not a tough read, or a lengthy one, but it is really well designed and a "visual treat", to use a dreadful reviewers' phrase
The sequence above is especially good as I just love seeing scenes retold in exactly the same way, but with a significant detail added, or a change in perspective that alters the whole thing.
You know what it's just made me think of? I need to watch that again.
But Who is Jake Ellis?
