For ages now, I've been seeing some really cool canvas prints of classic comics enlarged to a 20x16 scale, both in collectable shops and in mainstream outlets like Target. Now that I am getting a new house, I want to buy several to furnish my new space. However, it looks like some of the cooler ones I've seen have vanished off the face of the Earth. So that leaves me with two questions:
1. Anyone know of a site that has a large variety of these for sale, and at reasonable prices? Most of these originally sell for about $15-25. The Targets near me have an extremely limited supply, and the only sites I've found carrying some of these are charging $45-80 a piece.
2. If not, anyone know of a site that can create the canvas art for me if I supply the image? Not sure of the legality on this one if I own the original comic book and am not duplicating the cover with the intent of reselling it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
BTW, a few of the ones I've seen that I'd REALLY like to get my hands on:

You mentioned Target, I've seen them at Meijer and Hobby Lobby as well (both here in Southern Ohio, not sure what you have up in in Northern Ohio). I also see them at vendors at comic cons and at stalls at antique malls if you are willing to spend some time looking around rather than ordering online.
Meijer also prints canvas prints from photographs, so you could check with them if they can make comic cover prints from your photographs.
