'Comic Locations' Will Have You on the First Plane to Gotham

State tourism boards the country over could really learn a thing or two from Justin Van Genderen's 'Comic Locations.' 'Comic Locations' are a set of posters depicting real and fictional comic book cities.

As expected, Gotham and New York City made the cut, but I was really surprised to see Neo Tokyo from 'Akira.' These simple posters appeal to nerds and norms a lot and would help drive up interest in almost any city. While the real-life cities in 'Comic Locations' should have no trouble with tourism, these types of posters could also work for smaller towns and states.
