EXCLUSIVE: Donny Cates and Megan Hutchison to Marry at Lucca in Wedding of the Century

Move over, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle… the real wedding of the century is taking place at the Lucca Comics & Games festival in Italy this Halloween. That’s right, celebrity comics “it” couple Donny Cates and Megan Hutchison have set a date, Cates himself revealed EXCLUSIVELY to Bleeding Cool on Twitter.

Cates was following up on Bleeding Cool’s report on a dinner he recently cooked for his fiancée just because when he made the announcement.

Cates proposed to Hutchison at Megacon in May, delighting the entire comics community, and it looks like the happy couple won’t wait long before tying the knot. The wedding is sure to solidify LUCCA, already the largest comic convention in Europe, as the most important comics festival in the entire world as the convention will bear witness to the most romantic event to take place in an Italian setting since the restaurant scene in Lady and the Tramp. Cates will be a guest at LUCCA in collaboration with saldaPress, the festival’s website notes.

Now that we know when and where the wedding is taking place, the only question on the minds of Catesbronies — the colloquial term for hardcore fans of Donny Cates — is how they can participate if they’re unable to make it to Italy for the convention. We’re putting it out there right now to Cates and Hutchison: can we livestream the ceremony on Bleeding Cool?

In other Donny Cates news, Bleeding Cool is unable to confirm this rumor about what Cates had for breakfast, so take it with a grain of salt.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.

About News with Benefits

Why let facts get in the way of a good story? News with Benefits is just like the actual news, but more interesting because it’s embellished. Yes, it may feature made-up quotes, wrong assertions, and completely baseless speculation, but in a way, isn’t that more honest than the shameless buttkissing and corporate shillery you often find in the “real” news? Don’t answer that.

News with Benefits was pioneered at toilet-themed comic book news and opinion website TheOuthousers.com, which is sadly now defunct, but its stench lives on thanks to the support of your clicks and outraged comments.
