Gene Simmons to Get His Own Comic Book Mini-Series in January

If you are a fan of KISS, or even just Gene Simmons, then you will want to get your hands on this new comic series from Dynamite Entertainment… KISS: The Demon!

This is the first of several planned spinoff mini-series and prequel to KISS. The Demon! is cowritten by Amy Chu (Poison Ivy) and Erik Burnham (Ghostbusters), bringing in the artistic talents of Eman Casallos (Vampirella).

Amy Chu stated, “I am so excited to collaborate on The Demon with friend and fellow writer Erik Burnham. He’s written a ton of great stuff: X-Files, Scarlet Spider, and Ghostbusters for Marvel, IDW, Image among others. I figured this was a great opportunity to tell a really different kind of story, and it’s awesome that Dynamite is letting us do it! Our aim is to build an incredible backstory for the current KISS series, answer a lot of the origin questions like who is Mr. Blackwell? and push the envelope of the KISS comics franchise.”

KISS: The Demon #1 is slated for release in January 2017, so you better get in and reserve your copy now. KISS: The Demon will also be available through digital platforms courtesy of comiXology, Dynamite Digital, iVerse, and Dark Horse Digital.
