Kitty Pryde takes center stage in "X-Men Gold Annual" #2

There are lots of big weddings in the news this year.  The Royal Wedding from this past weekend drew massive amounts of attention the world over, and Batman and Catwoman's impending nuptials have been courting similar attention in comics circles.  But let's not forget that long-time loves Kitty Pryde and Piotr Rasputin, the X-Men's very own Shadowcat and Colossus, will also be tying the knot this summer.

It's all very exciting, to be sure, but once the wedding in X-Men Gold #30 hits shops this June, Seanan McGuire and Marco Failla will roll back the clock in August to take a look at Kitty's first romance in X-Men Gold Annual #2.  Fingers crossed for lots and lots of Lockheed.

Discover Kitty Pryde’s First Romance in X-MEN GOLD ANNUAL #2!
Featuring a new story from Hugo and Nebula Award winner Seanan McGuire and Marco Failla!

New York, NY—May 22, 2018—This summer, Kitty Pryde will make the biggest romantic leap of her life – but what about Kitty’s first romantic adventure? Hugo and Nebula Award-winning writer Seanan McGuire (October Daye, Wayward Children series) and celebrated artist Marco Failla (Ms. Marvel, All-New Wolverine) are bringing you the Kitty before Colossus in X-MEN GOLD ANNUAL #2!

“I am over the moon to be working with this amazing creative team and in this world that I have wanted to be a part of for most of my life,” shared McGuire. “Like so many of us, I started reading the X-Men before I was old enough to have been a student at Xavier's Academy. Kitty Pryde was my hero for most of my childhood. She was smart, she was curious, she got to be an X-Man and go to space and have a dragon for a friend--she was basically everything I wanted to be.”

“The thing about Kitty is that she was the only teenager on the team for a long time, and so she didn't really get to do a lot of what we'd consider to be normal teenage things,” said McGuire. “Or maybe she did, and it just wasn't the focus, since it wouldn't involve the rest of the X-Men.  This book is filling in one of those gaps.  It's part teen camp comedy, part heist, and part reminder that the X-Men aren't the entire world, whether you're a human, a mutant, or still too young to know.”

Why has Kitty kept this early days story to herself until now? Find out in X-MEN GOLD ANNUAL #2, coming to comic shops this August!

X-Men Gold Annual #2 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on August 1.
