Now you can get some Human Torch with your hot sauce! (And you can finally explain the Thing in your gordita.)
C.B. Cebulski (who you may have read a week or so back with his look into how NOT to break into comics, S.A.S.E.) has posted on his blog that starting today, Taco Bell will be giving away one of four original Marvel comics with their Kids Meals!
Cebulski will be teaming up with NYX’s Sara Pichelli on Fantastic Four — there’s currently no word on the books’ length, nor what other creators will be involved.
Based on the look of the screen, while the covers seem to be from previous comics, these comics will be original stories including Captain America, Thor, the Avengers, and the Fantastic Four. Given that there’s some movies with those characters on the horizon, this sort of mainstream exposure (and really, how much mainstream can you get than fast food?) is actually a pretty smart way of getting the brand out there.
