Ahead of San Diego Comic-Con, DC Comics and KFC are releasing another free KFC comic, that works as a sequel to last year's Crisis Of Two Colonels. So we have Colonel Sanders mopping up the mess his doppelganger left behind him, in Colonel Corps.
And get back to creating happiness amongst its citizens, one case of diabetes at a time, while using unfortunate colonial language. Writer Tony Bedard seems to be injecting satire under the crispy skin.
But tragedy strikes when the Colonel discovers he can only remember one of the eleven secret herbs and spices in his famous recipe.
Here, Colonel, let me help through one click on Google.
1 teaspoon ground oregano
1 teaspoon chilli powder
1 teaspoon ground sage
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried marjoram
1 teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon onion salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons Accent (MSG)
No, apparently, he needs confirmation, and discovers that the recipe is spread across different parallel universes and different Colonels… and because this is the DC multiverse, they'll have it in a flash.
But the most disturbing of universes? This one. Where Colonel Sanders is a chicken, and is serving a vegetarian menu.
Which basically reminded me of this sort of thing.
Which just freaks me out. Another soupcon of subversion added to the 11 herbs and spices?
