For untold millennia, the ancient entity called Z has travelled
across the stars, seeking the strongest of species and bringing
terror and destruction to those he found lacking. Now Z has
at last come to Earth, only to find himself confronted by
the planet's supreme champions, the Justice League of America...
Maps of Hell explores
why Lex Luthor's employees seem to be committing suicide in
Metropolis. It soon becomes apparent that their deaths are
connected to the number 1106. Meanwhile, explosions rock the
home cities of Batman, the Flash and Wonder Woman. Someone
or something is attempting to manifest Hell on Earth and only
the combined might of the JLA can stop it.
is a worthy edition to the JLA universe - but then
this comes as no surprise when you realise that Warren Ellis
is responsible for the writing.
for the JLA there's some very subtle humour woven into this

"I couldn't ride on your back?" To
which Flash says: "Your legs would fall outside the speed
force and would probably be torn off." Batman
simply replies: "This will be fine. Go."
this doesn't sound overly amusing, you really have to see
it in conjunction with the image of Batman been carried.
artwork is also worthy of note, with the action exploding
off the pages.
in all this is an enjoyable JLA tale.
