Now that's a gift the Sarge would LOVE. He'll go broke pimping it out, but he'll have no end of fun doing it :)

2 | Sausages says:


This is the closest I've ever been to the coveted first-post

Anyway, about the comic...

If I got one of those for Christmas, I'd go beserk and take out everything in a one-mile radius.

Critisism: I know this is a cartoon, but come on, look at the Chief's head! It looks like someone stuffed an air-pump into his mouthpiece and went crazy!

The art is nice though, as always. An admirable effort Gruntsbane.


Again!!! WOOT!!! Second Post!!!

3 | Sausages says:

Sorry for the second post, but I noticed something after reading it a second time.

That's not a gift, that's Santa's pimpmobile! It's friggin' moving!

Holy Crap! You better not be naughty or Santa will blast your *** with his massive firepower! I mean Holy **** talk about packing heat!


Sorry, again...

But WOOT!!! Third post too!!!

4 | Gruntsbane says:

Sausages has been hitting the nog early apparently.

5 | Ralku777 says:

Cool! I finally got on the first page! And on 5th!
Anyway, nice comic Gruntsbane.
Love that Wraith

Merry Christmas,

6 | Thresher says:

GB you mean LAST years egg nog right

7 | Wannabe Master Sgt. Johnson says:

That's either Sarges new gift (which would be a an awsome thing), or Chief called in backup and that's Santas new sleigh (which would be an "uh-oh" thing for those on the nuaghty list. Coal? How about a big-ol blast of Plasma instead?)

8 | Spartan-055 Pete says:

Merry Christmas Chief
And great comic.

9 | Wannabe Master Sgt. Johnson says:

Oh, and by the way: Merry Christmas to all and to all a good fight....ON X-BOX LIVE!!!!

Happy Holidays people, Huanukahh, Kwanza, whatever we celebrate...

P.S: To Guntsbane or mr. smiley, if you can fuse this with my previous post, may I ask that you do?

10 | otakuguy says:

Heh heh, good memories. the first time I actually played Halo was on Christmas Day. Due to political correctness, Happy Holidays everyone!(lol)

11 | J.M says:

13 | jman571 says:

14 | A random mad halo fan says:

15 | the grunt that doesnt wanna die says:

16 | crouching lurker hidden noob says:

Wow, first time the comic has been worth posting about in a while!
Sigh* I go beserk wiht a wraith on X box live but my internet is icompatible :(

17 | J lover(don't ask) says:

18 | Pred1ator says:

24 | A kid named Ricky says:

Merry Christmas everybody

25 | anonymousgrunt says:

25th post! Wait! How would the big red guy or MC get ahold of a Wraith? Some other character must have sent it, but who? Happy Holidays, just to be sociable (not to mention politically correct)!

26 | Thoraxe the Impaler says:

ENOUGH WITH THE 1st POST and 25th POST Crap!! ITS REALLY STUPID!! Anyway, the comic was alright, could have been better, but still funny...MERRY CHRISTMAS HALO BABIES!!

27 | Pinkuh says:

I have this sneeking suspistion that the Christmas Elite is on the loose again XD

28 | Strawberry Field Marshal says:

Oh Gruntsbane! I'm still wiping the unintentionally released fluids (Bob Hope called it 'Punchline Wine') off my pleather office chair! Oh your comedic wit. And insightful, too! Are you on board as writer for the Halo film? If so, we may need to assign the grim writing style of Isaac Lemore to counter your hilarity. An even merrier Christmas to you!

29 | Darkninja says:

haha nice aww there plasma in my stocking.... wahh wahh wahh

30 | K0mm@nd3rGr33 says:

Merry Christmas everyone.

Santa must have abandoned his "lump of coal" shenanigans for a more effective way of punishing naughty children. >:)

31 | SinisterMonkey says:

Well, everyone knows Santa doesn't leave coal. He uses the Wraith to turn the naughty kids into coal.
Anyway, Great comic. Could I get one of those wraiths too?

32 | Strawberry Field Marshal says:


33 | =Distiller= says:

What!!!! All I get is socks, not somthing that could kock my socks off. MAN sarge is one lucky bugger. Good comic GB although I am extreamaly perterbed (yes I think that actualy is a word) as to why you wouldn't do anything special for comic 117. I mean comon that "the number". OH WELL i dont want plasma in my stocking so ill be a good boy and forgive you. To all the hardcore HALO fans Merry Christmas And a happy new year. SANTA NUKED U!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On the twelfth day of christmas, the sergeant sent to me:

Twelve buggers buzzing
Eleven hunters hunting
Ten brutes a-charging
Nine elites blasting
Eight 'hogs a-honking
Seven spartans shooting
Six grunts a-running
Four frag grenades
Three prophets preaching
Two jackals dead
And some rockets just for me!
