synopsis
Kaitlin Grayson is an artist who finds herself compelled to carve a map that covers all four walls of her window-less spare room. One cold night, a disheveled man named Bartamus bursts into her apartment, claiming that only she can save his dying world.
For Kait, things like this happen in the books she illustrates so often, she feels like she knows what will happen next. But she couldn’t be more wrong when she and her friends step through her map and charge headlong into another world. In Maps and Legends is a world-spanning fantasy comic mixed with science fiction and steampunk.
This special edition collects all nine issues of this digital-only miniseries, over 190 full-color pages.

editorial reviews
http://www.shelfabuse.com/comic-book-reviews/maps-legends-2-review/
This is a truly wonderful looking series. Niki Smith's illustrations look like the concept art for a fantasy video game that never was… heavily textured but never overworked, with some distinctive character designs and uncanny creatures and contractions. The series has an aged, weathered “feel” to it, perfectly encapsulating Jasper's themes of artistry and history, and giving In Maps & Legends an aesthetic unlike anything else currently on the web. --- shelfabuse.com
Maps in Comics: In Maps & Legends - http://www.maproomblog.com/2011/02/maps_in_comics_in_maps_legends.php
The artwork by Niki Smith is beautifully done, with steampunky bits and lasers contrasting with map-influenced earth tones. The story, written by Michael Jasper, makes full use of what Jo Walton calls “incluing” -- things are revealed in bits and pieces rather than in a giant infodump (as in the description I quoted above). It's an effective literary device. ---maproomblog.com
