I’m new around these parts (well, new to the forums anyway) and am in need of your suggestions for a plan of mine.
I am getting married in May and am sneaking in little bits of comic book-ery where I can, like t-shirts worn under the groomsmen’s shirts and matching cufflinks.
But after reading G-Man’s Off My Mind: Marriage in Comic Books I had another idea; getting some wedding issues to use as decoration for the candy table we’re planning. And this is where I need the suggestions from some of you more experienced readers out there (having only really got into comics with the New 52 launch last year).
I’ve found a few issues on eBay but am hoping you can give me a few ideas. So far I’ve picked up the following:
• Superman: The Wedding Album
• Amazing Spider-Man Annual #21 (which was published the month that my fiancée was born)
• Giant Size Avengers #4
• Fantastic Four Annual #3
• Astonishing X-Men #51 (the variant cover where you can add your own picture)
• X-Men #30
• Flash #142
• JLA: Wedding Special
My other half has actually suggested using a stack of these comics instead of a ring cushion for the ceremony, then using them as decoration later. Most of the older issues will be framed and kept out of the sticky paws of any kids at the wedding, but the more recent issues will be available for people to flick through if they want.
Any other suggestions for wedding-related books would be greatly appreciated!
