Imaginary Cartography

For as long as I can remember, I've always loved maps. The back cover to Rex Libris #4 (Slave Labor Graphics, May 2006) provides an interesting example of a "map of nowhere."

Like all maps, it rewards detailed study in order to master its terrain.

The map is presented without a title. (I looked, but couldn't find supporting information about the image.)

Is this a map of personalities? Relationships? Human needs and desires? Frailties?

Okay, so yeah. I have to get this comic now.

And hey, talk about weird... I've been working on some maps myself recently...
Maps are good, and well-wrought maps of imaginary places can be even better.
