KFC And DC Comics Team Up For SDCC Exclusive Third Crossover From Tony Bedard And Tom Derenick

There's a lot that can be said about DC Comics, but one thing that can increasingly be said more and more is that their comics are finger licking good. That's right, another KFC/DC Comics crossover is happening with KFC #3: Across The Universe, available in print EXCLUSIVELY at the DC Comics booth (#1915).

From the press release:

In KFC #3 ACROSS THE UNIVERSE the Colonel goes cosmic in a star-spanning quest to bring crunchy, spicy satisfaction to a hungry universe, only to face a "thieving varmint" who steals his space-bound Zinger chicken sandwiches. Who else but DC's Green Lantern can help the Colonel scan the universe to catch the thief?! KFC #3's creative team includes writer Tony Bedard, penciler Tom Derenick, inkers Trevor Scott and Sean Parsons, with a cover by Tom Grummett and Trevor Scott.

Yes, it's a comic about fried chicken sandwiches. But admit it — this is more exciting than anything Marvel has announced for Legacy so far.

"It's been an honor, a privilege, and just plain FUN working on the last two KFC comics," said Bedard in the press release. "I'm super-excited the story is a trilogy now, with the Colonel planet-hopping across the DC Universe. As a former GREEN LANTERN writer, it's great to revisit Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps. I've written many comics over the years, but the response to teaming up the Colonel with DC Super Heroes has been a phenomenon all its own."

KFC #3: Across The Universe was first teased a few weeks ago with this video:

In addition to being an SDCC EXCLUSIVE in print, the comic will be available for digital download for a limited time starting on July 19.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
