Dynamite Entertainment has released the first issue of Kiss: The End to coincide with the legendary rock band’s “End of the Road” farewell tour. The 32-page full-color comic is written by Amy Chu & illustrated by Edu Menna with letters by Troy Peteri, cover art by Stuart Sayger, and variant covers by Jorge Fornes & Denis Medri, plus a photo cover:
Writer Amy Chu said: “I’m totally stoked to be back on KISS, especially for the final tour. And to be working with Edu Menna who drew my friend Craig Engler’s ZNation, it’s pretty awesome! I’ll be incorporating parts of the actual tour and KISS history into the storyline, and expect lots of Easter eggs, just like in the previous Elder run!”
Artist Edu Menna commented: “I’ve listened to KISS since my teenage years and their Unplugged album is a favorite. I’ve followed Amy’s work and have had ‘envy’ of artists who partnered with her… finally my turn arrived! I always try to bring something new for each project. In this work I want to use my style combined with the elegance of the European masters. I hope fans enjoy what we’re putting together.”
Editor Kevin Ketner added: “A lot of books have rock and a lot of books have roll, but none of them are going to combine the two like we are with this one. This is the first comic that is going to make your ears ring. So go hydrate, do some stretches, and get your LCS to pre-order your copy.”
Kiss: The End issue #1 is now available in both print & digital for just $3.99:
KISS‘ “End of the Road” tour kicked off in January in Vancouver, Canada and ends mid-September in Oakland, CA.
What lies beyond our world? Is there a heaven? Is there a hell? When a young man finds himself on the wrong side of life, he encounters Death itself and is set on a quest to seek out his errant demon offspring in an attempt to make his way back to the world of the living! But there is much peril on the way and the only ones who can help him are KISS!
