Where is Jake Ellis? #2

Written by Nathan Edmondson
Art by Tonci Zonjic

Nathan Edmondson keeps this book moving very quickly, as unknown men chase ex-CIA agent Jon Moore through Thailand, and he is forced to take a young American embassy worker with him in order to keep her safe.  Meanwhile, Jake Ellis, the man who spent years living in Moore's head (or something like that - it still needs to be explained) is brought to Thailand, with the hope that proximity will engage their connection once again.

It's not clear just who is after Moore, and whether or not the people who brought Ellis over are with them, or are with the American government.  Presumable, Edmondson's going to shed some light on all of that at some point in this series, but who knows?  There could be a third series planned - How is Jake Ellis? perhaps?

Regardless, the plotting is very tight in this book, and Tonci Zonjic continues to provide some very impressive art.  I'm most interested in learning more about the guy who has his eyes sewn shut, but seems able to see what Jon is up to, much as Jake is.
