KFC Comic Has A Chicken Colonel Sanders With A Vegetarian Menu?


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.

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?
