In this new Marvel Holiday Special one-shot, we see none other than the festive Jubilee try and prod at what has gotten Wolverine so grumpy. As creators, Ryan North and Nathan Stockman, deliver on an oddly good holiday short filled with all your favorite themes and a surprising twist that weirdly sees our Wolverine in a rarely sentimental limelight.

As he goes out with an old…

Well, you’ll have to read the issue and find out!
