Jake Falcón: Spirit Hunter is a paranormal graphic novel written by Victor M. Carrión and illustrated by Felix Carrión. Jake lived fast and loose. He was brutal in business and blithely disregarded the thoughts and feelings of those he came in contact with. When his embezzlement scheme went south, he left his partner holding the bag for it. Granted, he didn’t expect the man to throw himself out of a window and crash-land on a car, but he argued to himself that no one forced Lawrence to do it. Jake forestalled Police Detective Jennie Davis’ questions, promising to come into the precinct the next day, but he never did make it there. The accident he was in while driving late that night had somewhat permanent repercussions. Jake didn’t feel dead, but all the protestations he made to the police officer who arrived on the accident scene fell on deaf ears. He seemed to be out of body and was horrified to see himself still at the wheel, unmoving -- and there was nothing he could do to make that body in the front seat return to the living. In the days to come, he became a Spirit Hunter, an unwilling resident of a dark and tormented middle plane where he’d stay until he found redemption.
Victor M. Carrión’s paranormal graphic novel, Jake Falcón: Spirit Hunter, is a dark and gritty tale filled with harsh images, looming demons and a tortured anti-hero the reader can’t help but alternately despise and admire. Felix Carrión’s black and white illustrations masterfully reflect the dark visions of the story; each panel is evocative and profound, adding motion, pathos and a masterful collection of human expressions. I loved the flashback that Victor Carrión includes which gives some insights to the man Jake becomes, and the scenes which take place in the sanctuary for his fellow souls in transition are moving and powerful. I’m hoping the Carrións produce a sequel to this engrossing and original graphic novel. Jake Falcón: Spirit Hunter is most highly recommended.
