Check These Out: Iconic Comic Book City Vintage Travel Posters

Unless you get to visit a film set, you'll likely never get a chance to set foot in the iconic cities of Metropolis or Gotham City, homes to superheroes Superman and Batman respectively. Of course, these two cities are essentially alternate versions of New York, and other heroes have simply been placed at the center of the Big Apple itself for their stories. Well, now you can dream a little dream of how you might be convinced to travel to one of these superhero cities as graphic designer Justin Van Genderen designed (via The Daily What) travel posters for Gotham City, Metropolis and two other NYC variations with several familiar superheroes.

While it's not a superhero city, the poster for Neo Tokyo by way of Katsuhiro Ôtomo's Akira has a very cool look to it, too. However, my favorite is definitely the Metropolis poster with Superman zooming across the skyline. And if you absolutely love these posters as much as I do, then you'll probably want to purchase them in some form. Thankfully, Justin has every poster available for purchase now as: art prints, posters (which can even be purchased pre-framed) and canvas prints as well, all in various sizes. And be sure to check out the gallery of Justin's expansive work in graphic design over at his official website, too. Pretty cool, eh?

    Freakin' awesome! I want the Batman one although with the new movies we recognize Batman in Chicago more than New York. 😀 Neo Tokyo is fsweet though. Not sure which I'd get.

    Gotham City has always been Chicago >:P... kinda hard to have 2 New Yorks in the same universe with different names. Have to see if they keep the Lantern in Coast City (LA)
