"X-Men Gold" #30 to feature wedding of Kitty Pryde and Colossus

Thinking of romantic couples in comics, a few pairs come to mind: Clark Kent and Lois Lane, of course; Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson; Reed and Sue Richards; and even Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle/Talia Al Ghul/Silver St. Cloud.  Another couple who are nearly as iconic and just as deserving to be mentioned in the same breath as those above are Kitty Pryde and Peter Rasputin.

Since the Eighties, Shadowcat and Colossus have been linked, initially as affectionate friends that eventually bloomed into a full-fledged romance.  This summer, the duo are getting married. 

‘Til Death Do Us Part: Kitty and Colossus Tie The Knot!
The X-MEN GOLD wedding arc (GOLD #26-30) by Marc Guggenheim and Paulo Siqueira begins this April!

New York, NY—March 2, 2018— This April, the most exciting X-MEN GOLD arc yet launches with ‘Til Death Do Us Part – culminating in the wedding of Kitty Pryde and Colossus! But wedding planning takes a backseat as the X-Men fall under attack, with Colossus being the ultimate target, and that’s just the start of troubles to come.

It’s a super hero wedding the mutant way – with fights, adversities, evil alliances and more! The action kicks off in X-MEN GOLD #26, with the knot between Anne “Kitty” Pryde and Pytor “Peter” Nikolaievitch Rasputin being tied in X-MEN GOLD #30 this June! Plus, don’t miss the essential companion to the ‘Til Death Do Us Part arc: The X-MEN WEDDING SPECIAL featuring the return of Chris Claremont, out this May.

“After nearly 40 years, I’m extremely excited — and anxious — about telling the next chapter in Kitty and Peter’s epic love story,” shared writer Marc Guggenheim. “The wedding is the capstone on a story that is classic X-Men, with Kitty risking it all to save the man she loves.”

Take a first look at the updated covers to X-MEN GOLD #26 and #27 by Phil Noto, and get ready for a merry mutant wedding!

It all starts with X-MEN GOLD #26, arriving this April at your local comic shops.

Those likable lovebirds tying the knot is great enough, but Chris Claremont is making a return too?  Where are they registered, because I'm there.

The nuptials begin in X-Men Gold # 26, which will hit comic shops and digital retailers April 18.
