Superheroes do many things: They leap tall buildings in a single bound, they save the universe. But they rarely, in comics, stop for a snack. It's a sign of gastronomy's growing importance in our culture, then, that culinary comics have surged in recent years beyond the Dagwood sandwich. For comic book fans like me, the genre delivers lessons on dining and cooking in a wildly entertaining format.
Super heroes need to eat, too.
