2017 Week II: Resolutions vs Reality...
Here at Black Cat Comics in rockin' Milpitas we're not the kind of cats that wake up from the New Year's party and quietly dismiss our uproariously indignant commitment to ever-improving ourselves in 2017. We want to be an even better One Stop Shop for All Things Super Hero than we were last year, and the best way to start is to have even more fun, and find new ways for you to have even more fun, than we did last year! One of our favorite things about working in the wacky world of Comics is that there is something new and different to be excited about each and every Wednesday! This keeps it fun and interesting for the finicky fans and for all the folks lucky enough to be able to make a living in this industry. As your source for Comics, we work hard to stay on top of all the latest and greatest so we can give you what you're looking for, or recommend something you'll want to read, on any given New Comics Wednesday. We also travel to as many conventions as we can and pick up popular classic comics, and bring them back to the store, so you can put sweet vintage books in great condition in your collection at a great price. Plus we want you to have fun with old friends, and make some new ones while you're at it, so we create activities and events for your participation right here in rockin' Milpitas. And this year we will do all of these things even better than we ever have before. We're always saying there has never been a better time to be a fan of Comics. Stick around and we'll show you what we're talking about every single week, and weekends, too. Here's what we're talking about this week...

After being captured by Amanda Waller the justice league has found out that there are bigger issues than task force X. With Maxwell Lord creating his own team of super villains by using a type of mind control, he has brought them all together to seek revenge on Waller. In this issue Lord's team has attacked Belle Reve and it's up to the Justice League and Suicide Squad to team up and stop Maxwell Lord. Justice League VS. Suicide Squad #4 comes out this week and is sure to be an action packed issue. -Anthony 
The Dark Knight goes North to Alaska.  But not in a joyful Hope and Crosby way. (showing my age) Batman faces off against Mr. Freeze in Alaska. I've always been a fan of the different looks they've given Mr. Freeze over the years. Jock's artwork gives him a creepy vibe that frightens.And we get the added bonus of a specialized Batsuit, as long as we don't get the Bat-long johns from the 60's TV show I'm happy. All Star Batman #6 is out this Wednesday be sure to pick up a copy. - Al
Set in London in the late 1500s, a young woman named Rose learns about her true origin. Cast from shadows and magic a child is born, one that has power and mystery beyond her knowledge. What is her true nature? Who are her real parents? What is her destiny? This beautifully illustrated and written story by Aly Fell is a fantastic work of art. Shadow Glass TP covers the complete 6 issue story with additional artwork and background material. This is a great read if you're a fan of Shakespeare and the Elizabethan period in London. Enjoy! - Francie
