In an effort to move from exploiting homosexuality in comics to exploiting it in real life, Midtown Comics will be performing gay marriages on June 20.
June 20, 2012, is, of course, the day that the landmark Astonishing X-Men #51 hits stores. One lucky pair of fanboys or fangirls are being invited to cheapen the most important commitment of their lives by getting married in the giant New York comic shop, presumably resulting in untold riches for Midtown as a result of the ensuing media circus. Here's what the retailer had to say on their facebook page:To celebrate the wedding of The X-Men's Northstar and Kyle Jinadu in Marvel's Astonishing X-Men #51, Midtown Comics is looking for a comic loving, same-sex couple who would be interested in getting married in our store on June 20th for a special event!

So, anyone interested?! The Outhouse will pay you $25 to wear matching t-shirts emblazoned with our web address.
What?! We never said we were any better!
