KISS Comics

KISS band members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley are now the owners of their own comic book publishing arm, and they've already got a comic book planed for March 2007.

According to Music News Online:
The venture aims to be more than a publisher; it plans to expand the comic book characters` images onto multimedia platforms including print, mobile, online, film, television and licensed merchandise.

First up from the KCG will be "Kiss 4K," the story of Simmons, Stanley and other band members from rock stars to world-protecting warrior spirits. "4K" will be released in March as a 3-foot comic priced at $50, with an intent to make it the largest comic book ever published. That will be followed by merchandise including apparel, video games and comic strips for cell phones.

One should note that this was not in the Diamond Previews catalog, at least not that I noticed. I don't ever recal Platinum Studios or KISS Comics Group ever having anything listed in there.
