SDCC 2017–DC Comics free digital giveaway now–Green Lantern meets… The Colonel?

Yes, San Diego Comic-Con is still about comics.  So how about a free one?

In the spirit of great promotional comic book ideas over the years like The Adventures of Kool-Aid Man comic book, DC Comics and Kentucky Fried Chicken have done the unthinkable.  The unimaginable.  It’s the comic book you didn’t ask for and didn’t know you wanted: Green Lantern co-starring Colonel Sanders.  That’s right, a team-up of Green Lantern and The Colonel!

It includes an homage cover based on the classic Silver Age comic book cover for Green Lantern Issue #76 drawn by Neal Adams.  This is one fans of all things retro won’t want to miss.

Tom Grummett and Trevor Scott created the cover and Tony Bedard supplied the story with interior art by Tom Derenick, Trevor Scott, and Tom Parsons.

You’ll also see The Colonel meet up with several guest superheroes.

And you can download and read a copy of Green Lantern co-starring Colonel Sanders (also known as KFC Across the Universe, Issue #3) now here on Comixology.

What, you missed the classic 1983 comic giveaway The Adventures of Kool-Aid Man?

Contact your local comic book store and have them track down a copy for you!
