Remember Colonel of Two Worlds, the KFC promotional comic in which Colonel Sanders’ evil doppelganger from Earth-3, Colonel Sunder, tried to take over KFC (with Captain Cold and Mirror Master) to make it terrible?
They made another one. This time, Col. Sunder has stolen the memories of the secret herbs and spices from 11 Colonels across the multiverse: Each Colonel can only remember one ingredient, and with the Flash of Earth-11, they have to travel the multiverse to reassemble the recipe.
It’s as crazy as it sounds, with Koln-El of the Kingdom Come Earth (the K stands for Kryptonian), Colonel Lad of the Legion of Super-Heroes (with Impulse!), Bizarro Colonel, Red Son Colonel from the USSR, an Earth’s End Colonel who is actually a chicken. There’s even a Teen Titans Go Colonel.
I think we actually see more of Earth-11 Flash here than we did in the Superwoman/Batwoman special she was introduced in. I found myself hoping we’d actually learn her name. I’ve always been inclined to call her Barbara Allen, but there’s nothing canon as far as I know.
Actually the whole thing is oddly reminiscent of Countdown, except fun.
I’m not sure if it’s available in comic shops or if it’s a convention special like last year’s NYCC giveaway, but you can read it for free on ComiXology.
OK, this is up there with Archie vs. Sharknado for weird tie-in books. Apparently DC and KFC are having the Flash and Green Lantern deal with… the Colonel Sanders of Two Worlds.
I guess it makes sense, I mean, both of them are companies that use initials instead of spelling out the names. Totally the same, right?
ComicsBeat has preview pages for the comic, which will be released free at NYCC. Update You can read it for free at ComiXology. Captain Cold and Mirror Master team up with the Earth-3 Colonel Sanders. I am not making this up.
Though if they were going to go for the title reference, couldn’t they have tried to make the cover look like the classic Flash of Two Worlds?
DC Comics has unveiled the Flash #19 fold-out cover at Newsarama. To no great surprise, it turns out to feature the new Reverse-Flash, who recently debuted in Flash #17.
Actually, I do find it a bit odd that the Reverse-Flash is holding a bloody bicycle helmet.
DC’s April covers all feature a fold-out with a surprise twist on the right side of the image (at one point they were referred to as “WTF Certified,” but that terminology has been dropped), though how many are really surprises is hard to say. The Flash is featured on the “surprise” side of Dial H #11 cover, and Kid Flash on the Vibe #3 cover. The Flash also appears on the teaser sides of Justice League Dark #19 & DC Universe Presents #19, though the full covers to those comics haven’t been released yet.
Flash #19 also has a MAD-themed variant cover.

What is the latest and greatest threat to The Flash and all those closest to him?
CBR has revealed the Vibe #3 fold-out cover…and it features Vibe vs. Kid Flash!
“What is the one super power that is more than a match for Vibe and how can it tear the universe apart?” Now we know…though considering that Vibe was apparently picked for the JLA to counterbalance the Flash’s powers, it should have been clear already.
Vibe #3 is written by Sterling Gates (Flashpoint: Kid Flash Lost) with a cover by Brett Booth.
