Superheroes’ Cities and Pop Culture Cars


If you love the look of retro posters, check out these by Justin Van Genderen. The Chicago-based illustrator has created a set he calls Comic Travel Locations that show places like Gotham and Metropolis in stunning style.

"If superheroes really existed in this world we might see a poster like these in some old travel agency, all tattered hanging on the wall," Van Genderen said in an e-mail interview with Wired.com.




If you’re more into old tv shows than you are are into comic books, you’ll get a kick out of his series Vintage Car Ads. “Here are a few cars from my childhood,” Van Genderen says. “My inspiration for these came from old automotive ads from the 1960’s. However the subject matter comes from cool cars from the 80’s.”




You can buy these and more over at Imagekind.
