One Good Thing And One Bad Thing About Green Lantern: Larfleeze Christmas Special

GOOD THING: Cookie recipes. Puzzles. A back-up strip by the people behind Tiny Titans. And a main story by Geoff Johns, in which Larfleeze goes hunting for Santa after he doesn't get everything on his list. For once, a Christmas Special book that actually feels special.

BAD THING: All the in-jokes and funny-bits hidden on this cover... and Larfleeze is brandishing a ray gun in triumph instead of a Red Ryder BB Gun? For shame, cover artist! And after you remembered to have Cindy Lou Who standing there, looking shocked at all the things Larfleeze has stolen too!

The Final Verdict: This issue has everything your greedy little heart could desire in a Christmas Special book.


  1. ...looks like an AK not a ray gun...

  2. Should still be a Red Ryder BB Gun!

  3. No Santa?
    But I thought that Santa had shown up in previous specials? I've seen scans of him giving coal to Darkside!

  4. This is simply my closing argument that Geoff Johns can write anything.
