The comic book store, idle hands, and Super Bowl Sunday.

Kitty Pryde is bitten by a time-werewolf, causing her to switch ages from a 14 year old girl to a 21+ old woman as the sun sets (and back again when the sun rises). Altering her superhero career to match this curious circumstance, she fights crime as a schoolgirl ninja during the day, and as an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D./bartender at night.

Coming this spring in The X-Men Present Kitty Pryde: Something for Everyone.

This is what Employee Tim and I came up with as we were waiting for customers to arrive at the shop on Sunday. Thankfully, after a slow start things picked up a bit and we were distracted by actual work, instead of spending our time coming up with things like “time-werewolves.” I have no idea what a time-werewolf is, but it sounds cool. Kinda. Maybe. …Perhaps you had to be there.

Also, since yet another Wolverine ongoing series (Wolverine: Weapon X) is on its way, I thought maybe Marvel should just go ahead and start doing as many ongoing Wolvie comics as possible. Like Wolverine: Patch, covering all those missing adventures in Madripoor they never got around to covering in the early issues of the ’80s Wolverine regular series. Or Wolverine: Albert, the adventures of Wolvie’s robot double.

I mean, why the hell not, right?

In other news:

  • Dr. K, a real-life honest-to-goodness college professor, begins his post mortem of Final Crisis in his typical thoughtful and insightful manner. It’s a critical examination and appreciation of the series well worth reading, standing out among the general (and expected) reactions from readers here and there who found this essentially simplistic story difficult to understand, for some reason.
  • It’s Neilalien’s Doctor Strange awards! And since Mr. N. Alien linked to it, I should as well: more Doc Strange awards over at Sanctum Sanctorum.

    I’d love to do some Swamp Thing awards like this, but, well, you know.

  • AHOY, BATMAN CONTENT: Dave Campbell teaches you to kick drugs the Batman way, while pal Dorian shows you how the Waynes kept their fortune.
  • I’m a little late on posting a link to this, so most of you have probably seen it already…but my pal Cully may not have, so here it is: Jack Kirby’s photo-montages from Fantastic Four.
