Marvel Previews X-Men's Big Wedding

The wedding of X-Man Northstar and his longtime boyfriend Kyle has generated more discussion and controversy than almost any other publishing event in comics so far this year, and now Marvel is giving fans a sneak peek at the special day, as it will appear in the pages of next month's Astonishing X-Men #51.

The four-page, unlettered preview (seen below) jumps almost right into the ceremony, leaving not a lot of time for pre-wedding jitters or any  of the typical storytelling setup that tends to take place in such issues. Check it out, along with Marvel's description of the book.
