Rarely have I wanted to ever buy more than one copy of a book and spread the Larfleeze LOVE.

I agree, it looks lame.

But, I guess it's just supposed to be a fun book for the holidays.

That said, this just furthers the lameness of Larfleeze. He was sinister during the Orange Lantern arc, now he's nothing more than a bad Stan Laurel impression.

I think its going to be an interesting read. It could very well be the dissapointment Larfleeze needs to be pushed out of goofy wacky ring bearer to full on selfish pissed of orange guy!

At $3.99, I'll just thumb through it at the LCS. No way I'm buying this.

I will say the rendition of Larfleeze on that cover looks better than any interior display I've seen of the character in a long time.

This is a must buy. There's a new Wally West Flash toy in Larfleeze's cabin

I really dug this story. It was a cute little tale and nice diversion from life for a quick little read of fun.

Good story overall.

However, I was disappointed with a couple things.

Namely what Hal had to say in regards to Santa - and the end.

Geoff, it is Christmas!

Here's my full review:

I liked this, you just have to read it for what it is.
Yeah, Glom was classic in this (the most interesting "character" to me).
I also liked the elf girl's look when Larfleeze descends on the parade.
And Hal's constructs were cool.
The ending was a bit of a sad note.
And I liked the depiction of Odym in the 2-page kiddie story.

Still more in the spirit than this:

It was great; instant classic! I loved the page: "Help Larfleeze Get to the North Pole", especially the upper right hand corner. LMAO. Overall, a very lighthearted issue. Larfleeze should have an annual Christmas special if they can match this one every year.

The greatest Christmas special DC has ever put out. And of course Santa didn't come. Lobo killed him. Remember?

This was actually one of the best things I've ready from Geoff in a long time. I loved it! 5/5.

I actually want to go back and buy a few more for my friends now, I just might tomorrow.

It was a fun little read, glad I got it. Like the 2 page spread by Art Baltazar. Now I know what I'm asking him for a sketch.

I'm pretty sure he has ALREADY been shown to be real in the DCU on a few occasions, though I doubt any of them were meant to be taken too seriously.

(In fact, didn't Hal meet him as the Spectre at one point? Not that that means anything now, or even did then. A LOT of weird stuff happened in that run.)

And you could get one extra to cut out the Larfleeze ornament and GL Holiday poster. You know, for a mere $4.
