This debuts another comic series for KISS, whose costumes and stage makeup are themselves influenced by the founding members’ love of comics.  I fondly remember the Marvel KISS comics of the late ’70s, wherein the foursome faced down Doctor Doom with magic and the power of rock, and each of the KISS members got requisite super-powers.  Indeed, my knowledge of the band is more informed by that Marvel Super Special than by their music, in some ways, leading to today’s kabuki-inspired query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) normally gravitates towards the leader-type, as my favorite Beatle is John and my fave-rave Monkee is Mike, but favors the silver-masked esoteric Celestial, asking: Which KISS member is YOUR favorite: The Demon, The Catman, The Starchild or Space Ace?


About Author

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
