The third mega-crossover event comic from DC Comics and KFC will arrive tomorrow on DC’s digital outlets. KFC #3 Across the Universe will also arrive in print, as a giveaway at the DC booth at Comic-Con International later this week.
Tony Bedard, Tom Derenick, Trevor Scott and Sean Parsons tell the story of what happens when you steal the Colonel’s Zinger chicken sandwiches — you get the ring.
Here’s how DC describes it:
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?!
“It’s been an honor, a privilege, and just plain FUN working on the last two KFC comics,” Bedard said. “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.”

If there’s any justice in the world, we’ll get a hardcover collection of all three issues by Christmas. Don’t let us down, DC!
