Synopsis for the 1st Story

On a Greek island, a sheep disappears in a puff of smoke.  In New York, Troll returns home on Christmas Eve to find the sorceress Circe waiting for him.  Millennia ago, he tricked her into transforming into a sheep in order to steal her necklace.  Back for revenge, she gives him 12 hours to bring her everything listed in “The Twelve Days of Christmas” song or else she will transform all the men on Earth into warthogs. Troll rushes around the world, cajoling, abducting, recruiting, or stealing everything on the list. Youngblood chief Alexander Graves learns of what Troll is up to but declines to intervene.  Certain Troll will fail, Circe goes to Central Park to meet at him midnight.  To her shock, he arrives in a cargo plane and lowers its loading ramp to reveal everything from the song.  Defeated, Circe turns back into a sheep.  The next day, Troll is in jail for his actions.  After one of the “nine ladies dancing” visits him, a guard tells him he is in deep trouble this time, but Troll says he did what he had to do.



  • To get "ten lords a-leaping", Troll abducts ten members of the British House of Lords.
  • To get "nine ladies dancing", Troll recruits dancers from the Rockettes dance company.
  • For the partridge from "a partridge in a pear tree", Troll kidnaps (off-panel) actor Danny Bonaduce who as a child starred in the 1970s American television sitcom The Partridge Family. After Circe's defeat, Bonaduce presses charges, and that is why Troll is in jail.
