Today we’re celebrating marriage in all it’s wonderous forms. In our comics, we’ve got the shocking secrets behind what happened on Peter Parker and Mary Jane’s wedding day revealed in the One Moment In Time storyline… and here in the real world we’re all on the edge of our seats awaiting Judge Walker’s historic decision later today regarding California’s Prop 8 gay marriage ban.

My staff and I here at the Isotope are all hopeless romantics. We believe that all people should have the privilege of living in wedded bliss regardless of their plumbing. So we’re crossing our fingers for a righteous pro-wedded bliss judgement today!

UPDATE: Prop 8 marriage ban overturned!
