Favorite Book this week: Green Lantern Larfleeze Christmas Special

All books were new in stores on 12/22/10

American Vampire #10 (The Way Out, Part One)
Writer: Scott Snyder, Artist: Mateus Santoluco

This is the start of a new storyline, and a great jumping-on point if you haven't been following American Vampire yet. And you should be, because it's awesome. This issue sees the return of Hattie, and some of Pearl's day-to-day life.  

Batman Inc. #2
Writer: Grant Morrison, Penciller: Yanick Paquette, Inker: Michel Lacombe

Maybe this would be interesting if I knew anything about Mr. Nobody or any of the newer “worldwide” heroes. But I don't, so this series is leaving me pretty cold so far. 

Green Lantern Larfleeze Christmas Special
Writer: Geoff Johns, Artist: Brett Booth

This one-shot special was really fun. The style, the humor, and the “activities”are all great. The art is really lovely: highly detailed and quite amusing. The main plot involves Larfleeze (Orange Lantern of Avarice) trying to get presents from Santa.

Interspersed within the story are old-school activities, like a maze and a cookie recipe. There's a short second feature by the folks behind Tiny Titans which is also really cute. Overall, a great issue.
