How about checking the Art Departments and campus newspapers at local colleges and universities?  I know that our campus paper features a couple of student comic strips as well as an editorial cartoonist.  Maybe they’d be able to point you in the right direction.

Good luck… it’s a really cool idea!  :o)

I was just about to say try the Etsy shops.  I just had AprilInk do a poster invitation with and old WWII airplane to match our wedding theme.  It has turned out awesome I can’t complain!  I just now need her to add my wedding information to the artwork, so just put in fake dates and times. 

Very good wedding gift idea.  I’m trying to get a WWII noseart done for my Fiance.  He loves P-51 mustangs (type of plane).  I googled noseart reproductions and found a company that will do them on a really airplane panel!  So you might google comic book reproductions

Love the idea!  I don’t have advice for an illustrator, but I just wanted to chime in.  I second the college campus idea, though.  Maybe you can find some archives online and see if there is an illustrator who’s style you like.  come to think of it, doesn’t even have to be local universities. 

You could, I suppose, also try your local high school.  It’s years ago, but when I was in H/S our newspaper illustrators were amazingly talented.  And we got going on our first day of school publicaiton in august, so even if you can’t find them right now, you probably can track them down in a month or so.

I know an artist that could do that for you. Personal message me if you are interested. I think that’s a fantastic idea!

Definitely consider high school artists. Comic book illustration like X-Men is not terribly difficult for anyone with some figure-drawing experience.

I LOVE this idea, by the way! My Fiance isn’t really into comics, but I am! ;). So maybe he should do this for me!

That’s a great idea!

My wedding gift from my husband was a full color portrait of me by my Joseph Michael Linsner, my favorite comic artist.  He met him at Comic Con last year and did everything via email. 

Maybe try emailing some artists you see on the Marvel site?

You could post on craigslist looking for someone.  Under the art or creative gigs.  You might also check your local comic book shop for recommendations. 

Or try googling X-Men fan art.  here are some links i found:
