A tale of two proposals

A few weeks ago, the internet was all abuzz about the so-called “Greatest Marriage Proposal EVER!!” — some guy made a movie trailer and used it to propose to his girlfriend.  You can watch it here.

It is a fine video and the couple looks very happy, but as one of my wise friends once said, “if some guy did this for me, I would have vomited all over his lap.”

And yet, compare that with the wedding proposal where a comic artist created a graphic novel that “popped the question.”  The artist then planted the book in a book store specializing in alternative books and comics for his girlfriend to find.  Squee!!!  Now this is a great marriage proposal (not that I am in the market; I am not).

All this went down a couple of years ago at John Waters’ favorite book store, Atomic Books (Mr. Waters gets his fan mail at the store).

Baltimore comic artist, Michael Bracco created the book to propose to his then girlfriend.  The photographs below were taken by “Sugarfreak“:


To find out whether Mr. Bracco’s then girlfriend said yes, click through the photographs at this link.

Tiny top hat tip to Sugarfreak for giving me permission to use her photographs on my blog.
