So, I had intended to blog my way through China — as usual — but what happened was that I twittered all my usual posts and pictures. ::sigh:: That’s the allure of micro-blogging — and the problem. Instead of taking time and thought, it’s far easier to post something in 140 characters. I will, though, post some photos from the trip over the next couple weeks on this blog.
First, though, some pressing business. As some of you might have heard, we’ll be telling the story of Northstar’s marriage to Kyle within the pages of Astonishing X-Men. What’s the big deal, you might wonder? Well, it happens that they’re both men, and while that really shouldn’t be a big deal in this day and age, it actually is the first gay marriage in comics.
The official announcement was made on The View, and some of us Marvel folk hiked over there on Tuesday morning for the live taping. What I never realized, of course, is how close the audience is seated to the hosts — or how small the set feels in real life. It was all incredible fun, though. You can see us down in the front row, below.
I’m signing comics tomorrow in Boston at Comicopia from 12-3 PM. I’ll be there again at the end of next month on June 23rd, just days after the wedding issue (AXM #51) hits shelves. If you’re in the area, I hope you can make it!
