Batman and Kitty Pryde

Kitty Pryde has always been an interesting character in that she was always depicted as a "regular girl" in the midst of so many statuesque glamor gal superheroes. We met her as an insecure kid in the pages of Uncanny X-Men and have been able to watch her mature in her emotions and abilities over the years.

I chose a Paul Smith image for this cover. He illustrated one of my favorite runs on the X-Men, the awesome and under-appreciated Leave it to Chance, and the great mini-series The Golden Age. Here are a couple of sketches by this very talented artist:

Thanks! I'm glad you did her. She's my 2nd fav X-Man just under Nightcrawler.

Excellent cover. Smith is one of my fav artists as well.

Thank you for not using any of her crappy superhero names here.

I'm also a big fan of Paul Smiths run on the X-Men. It's when i first started collecting the X-Men. A great artist.
