Shop Honors Comic Book Wedding With Real One


A New York comics store celebrated gay X-Man Northstar's marriage with a real same-sex wedding, and there were special events elsewhere as well.

Comic book shops around the country are celebrating the same-sex marriage of an X-Men member in a variety of ways, with one in New York City hosting a real wedding.

Scott Everhart, 39, and Jason Welker, 33, a couple from Columbus, Ohio, got married this morning at Midtown Comics in New York, The New York Times reports, in honor of today's release of the Astonishing X-Men issue in which superhero Northstar marries his boyfriend, Kyle. A reception for Everhart and Welker was scheduled for this afternoon at the Eventi Hotel.

The two were selected from more than 50 applicants because "they really stood out as super-fans," said Thor Parker, Midtown Comics' social media and events director. They met online and had one of their first dates at a comics-related event.

Other comic stores with special events related to Northstar's wedding include the two Maximum Comics shops in Las Vegas, which will host receptions this afternoon with flowers, cake, and employees dressed in wedding attire, local TV station KTNV reports. The events will include a raffle to raise funds for Aid for AIDS Nevada.
