Review: Larfleeze #12 -- FINAL ISSUE!

So it is bon voyage to one of the most entertaining mags in the DC pantheon as Agent Orange, Larfleeze himself, bids goodbye to his own title with issue #12 this week.

While admittedly not a regular reader (maybe that is the trouble?), I frequently “peeked” at the fun and humorous cosmic shenanigans writers Keith Giffen and J.M. DeMatteis were having along with the always-appropriate drawings of Scott Kolins.

And while not on any regular pull list, I can never recall saying or writing or thinking anything bad about this book, which is certainly not the case with Threshold, where this strip started as a backup.

I have really been enjoying Giffen and DeMatteis’ dip into Larfleeze’s psyche and past, his battle with greed, and the supporting characters – humorous and otherwise – have been, well, out of this world!

Larfleeze has never been at the top of my list, but it has never been a disappointment when I did check it out either.

Maybe a backup for the Orange Lantern in one of the current Green Lantern books is in order. Yeah! DC?
