Larfleeze #4As Pulsar Stargrave finds himself meeting another (equally troubling) relative of the flighty The WandererLarfleeze is forced to deal with the legion of Orange Lanterns brought back to life by his former butler’s new master. Larfleeze’s incredulity at the anger of the other Orange Lanterns (who he murdered and imprisoned in the Lantern for years) doesn’t help mollify some very ticked off ring-slingers.

The off-beat sense of humor the collaboration between writers Keith Giffen and J.M. DeMatteis that has made the comic feel like a throwback to the pair’s Justice League glory days is evident here again, especially in a single scene where the happy folks of Unicorn-12 meet a less than pleasant fate.

So far the comic has succeeded by giving us more of Stargrave than his master, but the latest issue proves both characters’ antics can be a hell of a lot of fun. It also looks like the other Orange Lanterns are here to stay, as is Larfleeze (who they can’t kill now that he is the living power battery for all their rings). Worth a look.
