    It goes from funny to serious in the span between panels and I love every bit of it. Something ultra-cosmic could be coming our antihero's way, and I can't wait to see it! Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Jay Mattson Dec 1, 2013

    Larfleeze has quickly become one of the best titles in the New 52. Even before it launched, many fans were critical of a humorous title focused on the most annoying of the various colored Lanterns, and with good reason. Never before has Larfleeze has this much characterization, and the revelations Giffen and DeMatteis bring in at the end of the issue will shake preconceptions about Larfleeze down to the core. This is a very good issue of a very good series and it shouldnt be missed, either for Green Lantern fans looking for more insight into Agent Orange, or for casual fans who just want something a little more lighthearted in their comics.

    The Wanderer's suspicions foreshadow a serious threat not only to her newly arrived family but to the entire universe as she suspects a powerful enemy has put aside their own internal squabbles to to their attention on her family. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    I've said it once and I'll say it again: LARFLEEZE is without question one of DC's most fun and entertaining books. The script is exceptionally witty and, even when it feels a tad slow, it's still a completely engrossing read. You'd think Larfleeze's personality would get kind of tiring by now, but it hasn't at all. In fact, the character continues to grow on me with every single issue and month after month this title impresses me. They're doing great work with the Orange Lantern and I just can't recommend it enough. Read Full Review

    Well I have to say I liked this issue a lot more than the first three.  But maybe I'm coming into this with fresh eyes.  Since I missed issue four, I'm taking some liberties with what happened, and making the best out of this issue.  But from what I read it seems this series might be on the upswing, so there's that.  Honestly I have to wait a few more issues to make sure that most of the goofiness that the first three issues were filled with has died out, and we can go forward with this series.

    We The Nerdy - Jean-Luc Botbyl Dec 2, 2013

    It's really hard giving this particular issue a score. It was pretty much an even split between what was good about this issue, and what was bad about this issue, in terms of the story and character work. Half of the story and character work is interesting, and the other just fails to be as interesting as the rest of the book. That said, the art is consistent throughout, but nothing else about this book is consistent. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Nov 30, 2013

    While the art is pretty good and there are some nice ideas thrown, there are too many elements that simply don't work, making for an uneven read that doesn't really satisfy in the best of ways. Not the best issue this series has seen. Read Full Review
