A couple of ideas for the comics loving guy...Check a Dollar Store, Toys 'R Us, Wal-Mart, etc for Marvel Superhero, Superman, Spiderman, etc kids Valentine's Cards. The little, flat square kind that you give out in Elementary School...Then buy some of your boyfriends favourite types of Valentine's candy and make little candy packets to hide around the house. I put a few candies in plastic cling wrap, tie a red ribbon around it, then make a hole in one of the Superhero based Valentines, write your own personal message on the back and attach this to the candy pack.

I live with my bf, and always stay up later than him, so the night before Valentine's day I placed these little candy packets all around the house for him to find; one in the cupboard that he opens each morning to take out teabags, one attached to the bathroom mirror, one on the coffee table because he always watches the news before work, and finally one on the front door that he would find when he was about to leave. Even if your BF doesn't find them all, you can tell him he missed some later and he'll probably have fun searching for the more hidden ones. 

Another idea is to make your own superhero cards. Try doing a Google image search for his favourite characters and then use the pics to make your own Valentine's. You can use photoshop or similar programs to edit out what's in the word balloons and put in your own messages. Or search for "coloring pages" of his fav. super hero, make your own card and colour it yourself. A fun twist on this is to photoshop different characters into the same pic, so then you can have characters from completely different comics that he likes interacting. If you make one really good one, you could just buy an inexpensive frame somewhere, and give it to him to put on his desk, or hang somewhere in his room.

I've started my own crochet blog, have a look...http://cthulhucrochet.blogspot.com/

why not decoupage something with a comic (or rather one of those paperbacks with a few comics in them or colour photocopies of the comic)
