Christmas Special - What's in Marvel NOW's Stocking? - Travis M. Holyfield

Panel 1: The all new GHOST RIDER holds a Christmas stocking in one hand. In his other hand he is holding a book up to the light so that he can see the title

GHOST RIDER: “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance”. Sigh.

Panel 2: THE SCARLET WITCH holds her Christmas stocking in one hand and examines a piece of paper she has drawn from it.

THE SCARLET WITCH: A gift subscription to

Panel 3: THE SILVER SURFER holds a Christmas stocking in one hand while staring at a small circular tin he holds in the other.

THE SILVER SURFER: What is “Sex Wax”?

Panel 4: ROCKET RACCOON has his Christmas stocking thrown over one shoulder. He holds up his arms to display a tiny potted BABY GROOT, its arms outstretched in happiness. Rocker is smiling widely.

Panel 5: The All-New Captain America (Sam Wilson) is holding up his stocking. It has been stuffed with a giant, very familiar, disc shape.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: No idea what THIS could be.  

Panel 6: THANOS is holding his Christmas stocking and frowning in disappointment. In his other hand he holds up a pair of mittens.

THANOS: Not quite.

  1. I can't say I get all the jokes here, but I like the ones I do get, especially Rocker/Rocket's little Groot and Thanos' disappointment of a gift. "Infinity Mittens" doesn't quite have the same ring to it.
