Buy A Piece Of History With Original Artwork From Astonishing X-Men’s Gay-Wedding Issue

Mike Perkins is the artist who drew Astonishing X-Men #51, the historic issue in which gay mutant Northstar married his longtime boyfriend. Now Perkins is making his original artwork from the issue available to purchase.

Nearly half of the 26-page comic has already sold on Perkins’ website but the big-ticket item, the actual scene of the guys saying “I Do” (above), is still up on eBay. Currently the highest bid is $910, but there are three days left to the auction—so start searching through those couch cushions.

Below, a touching scene between Northstar and his superhero sister, Aurora, who has been less than embracing of her brother’s orientation in the past.
