Green Lantern: Larfleeze Christmas Special #1

Fuck Hal Jordan and his sanctimonious 'there is no Santa Claus' bullshit. Larfleeze isn't funny and the art was bad 90s Image retread. You'd have to add marijuana to that cookie recipe to convince anyone in their right mind that this was worth an illegal download.

15 Newton e-mails minus 12 cookies divided by 4 maze solutions times 2 pages of Tiny Titans = 1.5

Translates to a 9 if you ask me.

Larfleeze Christmas Special

Larfleeze is clearly one of the most influential characters of the last decade due to his ability to generate such lively discourse among fans. His Christmas Special is just another example of that. Coming into a Christmas Special, you expect a certain type of story coming into it and Larfleeze certainly delivers. Was there opportunity to do more with the special? Sure, but you're not going to get a groundbreaking comic out of a holiday special. Larfleeze Christmas Special delivers exactly what it promises a decent Christmas Special featuring Larfleeze. With the bonus of entertaining tidbits like the maze and cookie recipe.

And while you're at it fucking look up how to clean off that disgusting oven of yours :lol:


Other than a minor grease stain,that's a pretty damn clean oven.

I certainly wasn't expecting much from this comic, so I can't really say I'm disappointed. Larfleeze is an annoying character, created in an attempt to be funny but failing because the joke isn't original and demeans the rest of the DC Universe. I didn't need to read this comic to know exactly how it would go, but I did anyway, which gave me the added displeasure of being preached to about global warming while reading an insipid twelfth generation He-Man Christmas special rip-off. The sappy ending was both cheesy and out of character. The cookies look disgusting, by the way.

Score: Bag of Dicks out of 10
