This week saw history in the making and the SMV studio at the heart of it all. For the first time in the history of MARVEL comics, Astonishing X-Men Cover #51 revealed the same-sex Marriage between Northstar and Kyle on their cover, which happened to be designed by our very own Marko Djurdjevic.
There is a lot of debate in America at the moment surrounding the rights (or lack there of) for same-sex couples to be married or not. So naturally, the press is going to be big and controversial with this. Rolling Stone Magazine lead the charge with the exclusive premier.
Just so we're clear:
SMV takes the firm and proud stance that if two people love each other (and want to willingly go through the hell of "marriage"), more power to them.
So whether that couple is a "He&He" or a "She&She" or a "She&He and a He&She", unless you want perfect strangers to start judging whether you can legally marry the one you hold dear, why don't you just FUCK OFF, mind your own marriages and just let people be.
We're very proud of Marvel comics for going ahead with the romantic cover, Marko for capturing this moment as only he can, and we're proud to leave our two cents on this issues.
Congrats to the happy couple, here's hoping we get to do the cover where they start adopting!
