    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Aug 28, 2013

    LARFLEEZE is all kinds of erratic and nutty, and you know what? I absolutely adore it. The New 52 is filled with so much gloom and doom, so it's nice to have a cosmic title which offers an overdose of wackiness, big laughs and legitimate excitement. The visuals compliment the atmosphere quite well, the writing is sharp and the narrative is a thoroughly fun ride. This has without question become one of my favorite DC titles and it's a real joy to read. You've earned a chuckle or two, so do yourself a favor and give this issue a shot. Read Full Review

    I keep telling myself I really shouldn't be enjoying this comedic take on such a sinister villain, but darned if this isn't just a good old-fashioned fun book. In a time when “fun” doesn't seem possible in books with brooding heroes, this is a delight to read. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Aug 28, 2013

    Equaling the uniqueness of the story is Scott Kolins' expressive and trippy art. He draws humanoids and dogs made of energy tangling with Larfleeze and the ethereal Wanderer, lending the fights a Saturday morning cartoon sense of abandon. His art is as integral to the fun as the dialogue and plot, and it's because all three elements work together like a well-oiled machine that Larfleeze is such a gut-busting success. Read Full Review

    Larfleeze continues to get himself in more trouble while becoming the ultimate hoarder, with his butler as a hapless pawn trying to stay alive and intact. Developing Giffen's outlines, Scott Kollins has a Kirby-feel mixed with silliness, as Krackle and costumes contrast against farcical reaction shots. This is a must-read for fans of fun comics.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Aug 29, 2013

    With a better handle on the humor and what makes this title unique, Giffen and Dematteis provide a fun little book full of quirkiness with the chaotic yet fitting art by Kolins and Atiyeh. This is something that should please those in need of comedy and cosmic stories quite well. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Sep 8, 2013

    Freeing Larfleeze, Stargrave's former employer sets off to steal all of Laord's wealth and creates Orange Lantern constructs to deal with The Wanderer and reacquire his property, however things take yet another turn when The Wanderer uses her powers to turn the constructs into flesh and blood Orange Lanterns not too happy with being betrayed and slaughtered by their old pal Larfleeze in another goofy and enjoyable issue from Keith Giffen and J. M. DeMatteis. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Analog Addiction - Tony Couto Sep 3, 2013

    There's fun to be had with Larzleeze #3, and there are definite signs of more of that to come. The relationship between Stargrave and Larfleeze could use some solid development, so that it's worth sticking around for the long haul. Potentially the presence of the ex-slaves will bring that dynamic into full-force. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Aug 29, 2013

    Surprisingly I'm not saying I'm dropping this book, like I thought I would when I started reading issue 3. Most of the book was rough to read but the ending really pulled it back from the brink. I guess at this point I'm on a month by month basis. If I get one more real stinker I'm done. It just really suffers from the same flaws as Threshold, and I really don't want that. Larfleeze could be a great title, but I think Keith Giffen isn't the man for the job. But if you want a good Keith Giffen title, go check out his ongoing run on He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. He writes the hell out of that book. So shocked as I am, I guess I'll see ya back here next month for Larfleeze #4 Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Aug 31, 2013

    I don't find this version of Larfleeze funny at all, and Stargrave is more of an annoyance than anything else, especially since he gets far more attention than Larfleeze. Read Full Review
