"Santa Claus Kidnapped!" Superman Daily Newspaper Strip - November 23, 1942 to December 19, 1942
Hitler, Tojo and Mussolini hatch a scheme to undermine Allied confidence during the holiday season by abducting the beloved symbol of the season, Santa Claus. Although expressly a fantasy tale, even in the context of Superman’s extensive fiction – what we’ll later come to call “Imaginary Stories”, as though that somehow distinguished them from the otherwise-authentic imaginary stories – the fact that Superman can co-exist with Santa Claus marks a radical change for the character. While there may have been monsters, mad scientists, underground empires and murderous mer-people prior to this story, Superman’s adventures were largely rooted in the mundane world – physics, however loosely, still applied and the foundation of his fantastic feats were rooted in routing gangsters, thugs and rats. With the introduction of Santa Claus – much like the earlier Superman comics story wherein Clark and Lois watch a real-world Fleischer cartoon on the screen – anything goes.

Adaptive Survival Clothing
Textile project by Jacqueline Nanne makes woollen fabric adaptable to different temperatures (thanks to sensitive memory wire) - video embedded below:Using the great temperature and moisture regulation properties of wool and our own body as inspiration, fabrics were desiged that adapt to the temperature of the human body and the environment. The focus lies on the context of survival, as clothing plays a big role in staying alive in the wilderness. When on survival, one often adds or removes layers of clothing to keep a comfortable temperature. This design is intended to decrease the number of times one has to stop to change clothing, and keep comfortable when for instance taking a break or when ascending a mountain.
