Shocks and Surprises in The X-MEN WEDDING SPECIAL!
All-New Stories from Kelly Thompson and Marc Guggenheim! Plus, the return of Chris Claremont to the X-Men!
It’s almost time for Kitty Pryde and Colossus to tie the knot…but a Marvel wedding is never a simple affair!
This May, get ready to take part in epic and adventurous stories written by Kelly Thompson (Hawkeye, Rogue & Gambit) and X-Men Gold scribe Marc Guggenheim – plus, a wedding gift all on its own in the form of an all-new Kitty Pryde story from legendary series writer Chris Claremont, who returns to the X-Men just in time for the celebrations! But remember, when super heroes get together, mayhem ensues…and the X-Men are no exception.
“X-Men weddings are always a big deal, if only because they’re so rare,” teased writer Kelly Thompson. “I think you probably have to go all the way back to X-Men #30 in 1994 – the wedding of Jean Grey and Cyclops – to get a wedding as potentially big as the wedding of Kitty Pryde and Colossus: two X-Men who’ve been around (and on again/off again) for literal decades.”
In this essential companion to the X-Men Gold (issues #26-30) story ‘Til Death Do Us Part, get a glimpse at Kitty and Peter’s march toward wedded bliss! It’s a celebration, Marvel style, with all the action, adventure and surprises that you’ve come to know and love from Marvel’s merry mutants – and it’s only in comic shops this May!
