A Year of Cool Comics – Day 346

Here is the latest in our year-long look at one cool comic (whether it be a self-contained work, an ongoing comic or a run on a long-running title that featured multiple creative teams on it over the years) a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the comics posted so far!

We continue the Cool Christmas Comic Countdown with a bizarrely delightful Marvel Two-in-One by Steve Gerber, Sal Buscema and Mike Esposito, starring the Thing and Ghost Rider!


It’s Christmas Eve, 1974 and the Fantastic Four (and their various friends, who you don’t need to know who they all are) are celebrating the holidays in their own unconventional fashion…

What’s even MORE unconventional is the main plot of the comic. You see, Ghost Rider has come across a bizarre scene in the Arizona desert – a seeming recreation of the birth of Jesus Christ, complete with the shining star showing the way.

Well, Reed Richards has also seen this star, and he wants to investigate…

How awesome is the idea of the Thing and Ghost Rider disguising themselves as the Magi?!?

As you saw from the end of the page, it is all a ruse of the Miracle Man (the illusionist from Fantastic Four #3), but to what purposes? And what twist ending does the comic have? Find out for yourself by picking up the Essential Two-In-One! It’s collected in the first volume!
