KISS has been featured prominently in major comic book series through the decades—from Archie Comics to Dark Horse Comics. Now, a Dynamite Entertainment series simply titled KISS will give the band members special powers, narrative arcs, and fantasy adventures all their own. Gene Simmons told The Hollywood Reporter that the medium suits their four distinctive characters: Catman, Starchild, Spaceman and Demon.
The KISS co-founder characterizes himself and his bandmates as a kind of Avengers or Justice League:
“From the outset, we started the band with four separate and distinct personas, each with his own tone, each with their own cross to bear — not always getting along together, but connected in a way none of them realizes,” he said.
KISS the comic book series launches digitally and in print this October.
