KISS has partnered up with Archie Comics to launch a new, four-part story called “Archie Meets Kiss”. The comic will follow Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley and their band as they protect the comic’s regulars from an invasion of monsters. Genesays that the illustrations will not offend the young fanbase that the comic has.
Check out a trailer for “Archie Meets Kiss” below.
Simmons told the New York Post, “KISS is all things to all people. A five or 10-year-old fan doesn’t look at the lascivating nature of my tongue the same way someone much older would — such a thing is not obvious to a five-year-old, and nor should it be.”
The series launches November 30 and, in the words of writer Alex Segura of Archie Comics, “brings together two pieces of Americana for the first time.”
Jon Goldwater, CEO of Archie Comics, is a self-described “crazy KISS fan, who says, “Younger kids will enjoy the magical nature while older audiences will enjoy old rock ‘n’ roll.”
