I've fiddled a bit with that inked cityscape, and included it as one of the 'views' in the background: Yay/Nay ?

I Like it! It almost looks like that building with the domed garden in atlas park after Freedom revamped it.

I think those two lack that 'drawn for comic' quality :)
And yes, I know how hard it is to find good hand-drawn + inked pictures that could be included as a background here, I've tried :)

He he they are actually real photos I altered to look the way they appear here but I'll keep my eyes open for more options!

I couldn't find any good cityscapes from golden age comics unfortunately but what about this?

It's screenies from COH zones that I've altered to appear more drawn with a sepia filter.

EDIT: a couple more

This guy has some pretty slick comic book artwork: http://ryanbodenheim.deviantart.com/gallery/
Could ask for permission or feign ignorance in the very unlikely event he calls you out on it ;)
