Superheroes, like cannonballs filled with nougat, combine outer strength with internal goodness. Savor illustrated justice with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of comic books and accessories at Black Cat Comics in Milpitas.
Mark Causey and Francie Soito, co-owners of Black Cat Comics, have been stocking their shelves with heroes and villains in book, T-shirt, and toy formats since 2002, marking their 10-year anniversary. Renumbered codices from DC's The New 52 ($2.99+) include such familiar faces as Aquaman, The Flash, and Superman. The characters in issues #75 of The Amazing Spider-Man ($20) and #154 of Captain America ($15) share stories of hip replacements and early-bird specials with the rest of the shop's Gold and Silver Age collection. Black Batman logo caps ($15.95) protect Bruce Waynes from sunny glares, and a Brainiac action figure ($19.99) adds a festive touch to any mantelpiece.
