Colonel Sanders Teaming Up with Green Lantern and It’s Great/Weird

It takes a lot of willpower not to eat an entire bucket of KFC when the opportunity arises, but willpower is the trait I am always missing when someone puts fried chicken in front of me. But I know I’m not the only one whose greatest weakness is greasy fried food. That explains why in his hour of need Colonel Sanders has turned to a hero who understands a little something about the awesome strength of willpower, and he will join forces with Green Lantern in an all new tasty comic book.

DC Entertainment announced their latest totally absurd–but frankly pretty awesome–team up with KFC, the third entry in their Colonel Sanders/Justice League union. This time the white-suit wearing symbol of finger-licking chicken goodness will go “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.”

Stealing chicken sandwiches? Some evil schemes hit a little too close to home.

The comic, from former Green Lantern writer Tony Bedard, will be available at DC’s booth (#1915) at this week’s San Diego Comic-Con, from July 19-23, 2017. But if you won’t be able to make it out there for the nerd Super Bowl Big Game not to worry, because it will also be available for a limited time as a digital download starting on Thursday. You’ll be able to get it here.

But as for a greater sense of willpower, we don’t have the link for that. You’re on your own there. Fried chicken is basically our kryptonite.

Where does this unlikely comic book duo rank among your favorite strange team ups? Tell us your finger-licking good thoughts in the comments below.
