KISS Kompendium is an eye-popping compilation of the previously out-of-print Stan Lee Marvel comic book adventures of the legendary heavy metal band, as well as the famed Psycho Circus and Dark Horse editions and KISS's own KISStory. Featuring artwork by Todd McFarlane and other acclaimed graphic artists and fully authorized by Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley, KISS Kompendium coincides with the release of the latest album and includes candid, never before seen photos from the recent KISS tour and from the band members’ personal archives. Here is the perfect gift for every comic book lover, rock music aficionado, and KISS fanatic on the planet.
In '77, blood from each member of the rock band KISS was drawn by a registered nurse and poured into vats of red ink used for printing the band's first comic book. It was created by Marvel legend Stan Lee and was the beginning of a hugely successful KISS comic book franchise. All are now out of print.
Now, for the first time, the KISS Kompendium combines the most breathtaking KISS comic books into a lush oversized collector's compilation. Brought to life by graphic illustrations as riveting and hardcore as the band's real-life fire-breathing line-up, the Demon (Gene Simmons), Starchild (Paul Stanley), and the other band members' superhero alter egos defeat evil in over 1200 pages of stunning KISS comics!
This is a book authorized by KISS. KISS founding members Gene Simmons, a rock legend and star of A&E's Family Jewels, and Paul Stanley have contributed the forewords to this. The book also includes exclusive never-before-seen backstage photos from KISS' newest tour along with commentary by the band-members.
This is a must-have for every KISS fan eagerly awaiting the band's new album, their first in over 10 years, and a perfect holiday gift for comic-book lovers to pour over time and time again.
