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 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 lover to pour over time and time again.The KISS Kompendium, over 1,200 pages of KISS comics - on sale December 8, 2009 - is available for pre-order at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, WalMart and wherever books are sold.
