According to The Hollywood Reporter, the original splash page art from Astonishing X-Men #50 – featuring Northstar on bended knee proposing to his boyfriend Kyle – is for sale on EBay.

The auction – which is being managed by a representative for artist Mike Perkins – will also include five preliminary sketches in addition to the artist’s final drawing.

However, if you plan to be the sole owner of the original art that sent One Million Moms into full panic mode you’ll need to be prepared for a fierce bidding war.

Gay comic geeks won’t be letting a historic piece of LGBT pop culture like this slip through their fingers without a fight. After all, being the geeky envy of all your friends doesn’t come easy.
