It’s A Dog Eat Hog World in ‘Larfleeze’ #10

Confirmed. He's orange.

Confirmed. He's orange.

Larfleeze has always been an odd duck in DC’s lantern lineup. The Orange Lantern wields an all-consuming power that has murdered and absorbed thousands of lives — including Green Lanterns — but he’s frequently the comic relief. Other Lantern Corps tend to give him a pass based on nothing more than how goofy he is, even while he poses a constant, insatiable threat.

They also like to mention how much he looks like a Muppet, if Muppets were warthogs and warthogs were New Wave hyenas. Anyway.

All that makes him overdue for a pairing with G’nort, the silliest Green Lantern of all. G’nort is…well, it depends who’s drawing him, but most of the time he’s a dog–a very stupid dog, but one that rose to prominence in the old Justice League International and its subsequent break-off titles, plotted by Keith Giffen and scripted by J.M. DeMatteis.

Ho ho ho. Now the Red Lanterns have a Kryptonian.

Nobody mentions how much he looks like a Muppet, if Muppets occasionally had faux-hawks. (Perhaps this won’t be a battle of rings but awkward alien hairstyles?) Good thing artist Scott Kolins is keeping them both true to their classic designs.

Now the same team of Giffen and DeMatteis brings G’nort back this month to presumably face down Agent Orange and see who’s more bite than bark. The victor will be crowned greatest Lantern of all time, even though everyone already knows that’s Guy Gardner.

Hey, what gives? These two aren’t fighting each other! *gasp* Can a third-party possibly unite them?

Most sensible people would flee at the pile of skulls, but that’s Larfleeze for you.

This is exactly like trying to get Siri to heed your commands.

LARF_10_3

That’s a lot of splash page for what amounts to a Saturday list of errands.

LARF_10_4

Yeah, but now you’re a tree with a silly hat. So was it worth it?

The great thing about having two heads and one ax is you can only accidentally cut off one head.
