With New York Comic Con rolling around once more, we at Time Out were itching for the chance to comic book–ify our print magazine. Two artists each from DC and Marvel busted out their pencils and inks to illustrate a quartet of exclusive covers featuring our favorite superheroes in NYC settings, including Marvel’s Thor and She-Hulk, and DC’s Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and Green Lantern. Check out the finished products below, and find out more about the artists who created them.

  • She-Hulk (Marvel Comics)
    Art: John Tyler Christopher (@johntylerchris)

    Biography: John Tyler Christopher is an illustrator from Lafayette, Indiana. He has worked on comics including Iron Man, New Mutants, Ultimate Comics: The Ultimates, Dark Avengers, Amazing Spider-Man, The Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Fantastic Four and Wolverine, as well as on video games, tabletop games and film. He enjoys spending time with his wife and daughters, and waxing intellectual about the sheer awesomeness of the Gorn.

    Christopher on his cover: I wanted to capture the larger-than-life qualities of the Big Apple, since so many people will be coming from around the world for NYCC; I though the best way to capture this was to juxtapose She-Hulk with a down-to-Earth scene of Americana.
