Under the Tents: KFC, Mike Mignola, DKE, Ninjabot, Trayjus, Voltron, Archer

In Exclusives, General News by Ben Kucharski2 Comments

In less than two weeks we will be in San Diego enjoying the start of San Diego Comic-Con 2016.  We rounded up all the tasty tidbits you might have missed from news on our much loved Colonel, exclusives, commissions, as well as artists and their wares.

Here’s a look at the news you might have missed:

  • The Colonel isn’t done with us yet!  Bleeding Cool reports that KFC has teamed up with DC to bring issue #2 of their comic which will be the sequel to last year’s.  The cover art is amazing and hints at the story being about different Colonels in the DC multiverse.  One of the most interesting being a vegetarian Colonel Sanders.  Good to see they aren’t taking themselves to seriously.  The issue is available as a free download at Comixology.  We are hoping this isn’t all of the fun KFC goodness this Comic-Con.
The Colonel is Back!
