A few weeks back we got Warren Ellis’ JLA: New Maps of Hell paperback from the library for the kids at the childcare centre where I work. I heard a couple of kids talking about it this afternoon. It went something like this:
“Read a comic.”
“I read them all. This one? New Maps of Hell? It’s so boring! Nothing happens!”
To be fair, something does happen in the comic. They blow up a robotic death god thing. Doesn’t that count for something?
Ah well. Maybe next month I’ll get them Transmetropolitan, and they can get a taste of the real Ellis.
