The Flash & Colonel Sanders Team-Up For NYCC Exclusive DC Comic

DC Entertainment and KFC have announced via The Hollywood Reporter that they are teaming up Colonel Sanders with the scarlet speedster known as the Flash for a special New York Comic Con exclusive comic book. The adventure, titled "The Colonel of Two Worlds" in a nod to a classic Flash story, comes from writer Tony Bedard and artist Tom Derenick.

The Green Lantern will also appear in the issue, which features the trio of heroes going up against the Colonel Sanders of the parallel universe, Earth-3. Yep, there's an evil Colonel Sanders, who you can spot easily thanks to his black suit.

This isn't the first Colonel Sanders comic to appear this year, THR notes. The Colonel also appeared in a special KFC/DC mash-up comic for San Diego Comic-Con, which introduced the comic book version of the famous fast food mascot and revealed his super power -- "frying chicken the Hard Way."

The issue will be available at New York Comic Con in New York City, which takes place October 8 to 11. For those not at the convention, you can pick up a copy of the comic between 11am and 3pm ET in Union Square in NYC on October 9; readers not in New York will be able to get the comic digitally on the KFC website and Comixology starting on Thursday, October 8.
