    Default What happened to Where is Jake Ellis?

    Are issues 4 and 5 ever coming out? Can't find any info about what happened to the series.

    I asked this a while back and got no responses. Edmondson is writing Black Widow now so maybe Jake fell off the radar.

    I haven't heard anything about any release dates yet, but it's still happening. Tonci Zonjic's still working on it.

    It's a marketing strategy tied to the title of the comic. Everyone is now literally wondering out loud, "where is Jake Ellis ?"

    Very clever. Maybe "Sex Criminals" should attempt the same strategy.

    Along with his last book which is also unfinished , A 6 part Mini-Series The Dream Merchant, Issue 3 came out July 2013 still waiting on Issues 4-6, no information that I could find just TBD, no apology to people who bought the first three, no explanation given.

    Well, that's certainly not encouraging. Thanks for letting us know.

    The Problem with Image comics for creators is this.... You get paid about 3 months after the comics published. So sometimes artists have to get upfront paying gigs inbetween. (I'm not saying that is the case here, but its sometimes the issue).

    anyway; from what Nathan Edmondson said a few days ago in response to this tweet from someone: "Any answer to: 'Where Is Jake Ellis?'" and the response was "ask the artist. :)" followed by "although I can tell you the next issue is mostly done and in my hands."

    And this is why I am always hesitant to read Image. You find a series you like and then something like this happens.
    Pull List: Valiant Titles, All New Marvel Now Titles, Popeye Classics, Haunted Horror.

    I asked Edmondson a while back about the series in an e-mail, and he said the same thing: "ask the artist." I don't remember if there was a smiley or not, however. It seems like all his books are delayed -- THE ACTIVITY and THE DREAM MERCHANT (as mentioned here), in addition to JAKE ELLIS. This is why I have not read the books yet. I'm waiting for the series to end before I do so. In the meantime, I doubt I'll be picking up anything of his anytime soon. My time and money will go elsewhere.
