Brand band Kiss announced a partnership this week with comic book production company Platinum Studios to create a new comic-book entertainment company called the Kiss Comics Group.
This is not the first time the band has teamed up to make comics…or the second…or the third, but it will be the first time that founding members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley -- under the banner of Kiss Catalog Ltd. -- will produce its own comic-book-based characters. They plan on expanding the comic-book characters' images onto multimedia platforms including print, mobile, online, film, television and licensed merchandise.
First up will be Kiss 4K, "the story of Simmons, Stanley and other band members' transformation from rock stars to world-protecting warrior spirits." It is based on a true story, of course…
