DC's latest promotional comic for KFC is a sequel to last year's "The Colonel of Two Worlds," in which Colonel Sanders teamed up with the Flash to fight Colonel Sunder, his evil counterpart from Earth-3. It involves an attack from Sunder that causes eleven of the Colonels Sanders of the Multiverse to each forget all but one of the Eleven Secret Herbs and Spices, meaning that they have to all team up to remember how to make fried chicken, including the Colonel Sanders of the Kingdom Come universe or the far-off future of the Legion of Superheroes. It posits that Colonel Sanders and Kentucky Fried Chicken are multiversal constants within the construct posited by Multiversity and Convergence, on par with Superman and Batman.
And it is the single best DC comic of the year.
Kentucky Fried Chicken has gone through a number of branding changes over the years (most notably, when they moved away from the full name to the current "KFC"). But one thing has always stayed with the brand - the iconic image of Colonel Sanders. And lately, they've resurrected the Colonel. Almost literally.
Yesterday, as I had the TV on, a familiar commercial started playing, a commercial that I know that I've seen a number of times before. As it was playing I realized, I have no idea what brand or service the commercial is actually for.
