Visit Your Favorite Superhero’s Hometown

Monday 05.14.2012 , Posted by

Have you ever wanted to travel to Metropolis or Gotham City? Now, thanks to the artwork of Dave Ault, you can get that vintage travel poster feel — and the inspiration to go — from the comforts of your own home.

Ault created similarly styled illustrations for Superman, Batman, The Flash, Wonder Woman and Green Arrow, using his interpretation of the superheroes’ home cities in the background. The resulting images are a slick, two dimensional theme with a distinctly mid-century look. While all of these heroes are DC Comics based, Ault may be featuring other examples in the future and who knows, he may even do some villains.
