Archie Comics and IDW Publishing will collaborate with the rock band KISS on two projects. Reportedly, this will be the first time two major comic publishers have shared a license simultaneously.
Frontman Gene Simmons had this statement in the release: “KISS has a comic book history that spans almost four decades … Archie and IDW will tell two unique and in-your-face tales of KISS, and we’re thrilled to be working with them on these projects.”
Archie Comics will launch the KISS storyline series in November with Archie #627. The four-part mini-series features writing by director of publicity & marketing Alex Segura and illustrations by veteran artist Dan Parent. IDW plans to release their comic in 2012, but has not revealed any further details.
