Gwen Poole (aka Gwenpool), left the real world for the Marvel Universe. Now she lives there, using her encyclopedic knowledge of comics to help her in her new line of work as a mercenary. In the Gwenpool Holiday Special: Merry Mix-up, she finds that something has happened to change all the holidays, creating bizarre new holiday traditions like the exchange of hot pants on Pantsgiving, and the replacement of Santa with Galactus. Determined to get to the bottom of thins, Gwenpool heads to the North Pole to find Santa.

The Punisher explains the true meaning of Pantsgiving.

This comic is pure silliness, strictly for Marvel fans since it will make no sense to anybody else. It features an all-star cast, including Galactus, Red Skull, Thanos, Fing Fang Foom, Spiderman, Squirrel Girl and the Punisher. My only complaint would be that there is comparatively little of Gwenpool in this issue, but Squirrel Girl's appearance in Deadpool's Halloween comic makes up for that.

Hydra has a diverse workforce.

If you're looking for a bit of silly, geeky fun to enjoy this holiday season, Gwenpool Holiday Special: Merry Mix-Up might do the trick. Don't expect a complex plot or a moral to the story, just sit back and enjoy the ride.
