PiercingMetal Thoughts: By now you readers all know that I am a big KISS fan right? If not, let me point out that I am a BIG KISS FAN 🙂 So I love their music, their live concert adventures and when they make appearances in the comic books. Dynamite Entertainment has been keeping fans of their world in this medium very sated with several exciting series. I didn’t manage to keep up with them all as not every comics shop carries a wealth of Dynamite Entertainment stuff and choose to mostly focus their racks on the Marvel and DC Comics side of the fence. Generally I will special order when this comes to pass but I digress. I am curious to see what this one is all about and I might have to rethink my slower purchasing for the duration of this series. As expected there will be an abundance of variant covers and since I like showcasing in their own post I will do a follow up with those visuals in the coming days. Before we go, I should remind the readership that KISS has been in the news quite a bit over the last month with the announcement about an appearance at Tribeca Festival, a European leg of their “End Of The Road” World Tour and a new live bootleg album series called “Off The Soundboard”. Clicking any highlighted text will bring you to features discussing those items in greater detail. So I’ll close up now and ask what you think about this news and if you will be considering adding this one to your weekly pull list. Chime in down below in the comments section and we shall see you again soon. Keep safe out there.
