Cover Dated March 1994
So there is a story with Jubilee and Jean as they go through her old clothes. Then Jubilee finds a diary of Jean’s and just reads it like the little snot that she is.
There is also a page where via Jean telling her mother, we learn that Nicole Miller – designed her dress. Just like how Willi Smith designed Mary Jane Parker’s wedding dress. Both of them being real life fashion icons. Now that I think of it, Storm’s wedding dress was designed by a real fashion designer – Shawn Dudley, the Emmy-Award Winning Costume Designer for TV’s Guiding Light. Good for Marvel, getting all these talents for creating their icons’ wedding dresses. These are meant to be important dates and deserve A-List talent.
What I own this oversized book for is the Kitty Pryde “Cut to the Video” where she records a bunch of messages from people. Which I’ve never been to a reception where people did this so I’ve been under the impression it only happens on television and in movies.
Writers Scott Lobdell and Fabian Nicieza
Pencilers Ken Lashley, Tom Lyle, Ron Garney and Jae Lee
Inkers Scott Hanna, Jae Lee, Andrew Pepoy, Bill Sienkiewicz and Jae Lee
Colorists Pat Garrahy and Chris Matthys
It isn’t easy to tell who provides the art for which sections (besides Jae Lee and Bill SIenkiewicz) but thanks to our friends at comicbookdb.com, we have the above credited talents.
So as Kitty is the person before the camera, the DP, I’m only interested in her first two pages.
Her message for the newlyweds is :
Hi Mr. and Mrs.! In lieu of a real gift — as in one that costs money which I don’t have — this video album is my present to you. Enjoy! Ooooops — I almost forgot : CONGRATULATIONS!
Jean and Scott were married from 1994 to 2001/2004 when Grant Morrison’s run lasted. So seven years before GMo got his hands on them. So if I can make it to year eight, I will feel like I accomplished something.

I know I said this earlier in the week but since today is our actual anniversary day, I just wanted to give my wife a special shout out. Thank you so much for the best six years of my life! I couldn’t be happier than how you’ve made me.
