KISS' PAUL STANLEY, GENE SIMMONS To Sign Copies Of 'Archie Meets Kiss'

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. Gene says that the illustrations will not offend the young fanbase that the comic has.

Stanley and Simmons will hold a signing session at Golden Apple Comics in Los Angeles to celebrate the release of "Archie Meets Kiss". The event will take place on Wednesday, November 30. Wristbands will be available at 10 a.m. with the purchase of the comic book. The event is limited to 100 fans and two items per person.

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."
