Finger Lickin' Good!


I never knew this promotional comic existed. It's a curious artifact from 1969 when the Kentucky Fried Chicken brand went public soon after the Colonel sold his business for what seems now a paltry sum of two million. But as a spokesman for the firm he became one of the most recognizable men on the planet. That's worth something I guess.

Certainly the Colonel was an ideal candidate for his own comic. Given the claim at the top of this comic about its flavor, I'd imagine few of these exist today.

    1. Apparently too top secret for the creators of this mere comic.
