Archie Writer Alex Segura Talks 'Archie Meets KISS' Comic Book

KISS, Sabrina the Teenaged Witch, and Archie Mix it Up in Riverdale

Eric Shirey, Yahoo! Contributor Network

As soon as I heard that KISS was making an appearance in Archie Comics, I wanted to get all the details right away. I am a huge fan of KISS and a huge fan of comic books, so you can understand my curiosity. I had a chance to interview Archie Comics writer Alex Segura about the upcoming "Archie Meets KISS" issue that is being released in comic specialty shops on December 28, 2011.

Talk to us about the concept of putting KISS in the world of Archie comics. How did it come about?

It was remarkably easy, actually. Gene Simmons gave Jon Goldwater, our Co-CEO, a call and said, "I want to do an Archie and KISS comic." Jon was all for it. I got wind of the project through my meetings with Jon and our President Mike Pellerito and put together a pitch. They liked it, and here we are! Plus, Dan Parent is drawing it. What could be cooler?

Are you a KISS fan? If so, what does the band mean to you?

Definitely a fan. I love, love, love music. So yeah, I listen to KISS and they're a big part of that. They're really bigger than music, though. What I tell people is that Archie Meets KISS is the crossing over of two key parts of Americana. One of my earliest comic reading memories actually involve KISS, but not in the way you'd expect. I remember ads for KISS's "Revenge" album and just wondering who the heck these guys were. If you'd told me then I'd be writing about them and Archie in a comic, I probably wouldn't have believed you.

ARCHIE'S FIRST
NY POST
By DON KAPLAN

Only in a comic book could a freakish rock group like KISS team up with a bunch of squeaky-clean square pegs like Archie, Veronica and Jughead.

But given the hard-rock band’s penchant for popping up on items ranging from condoms to Hello Kitty toys, it was only a matter of time before they wandered into something like “Archie Meets KISS,” a new comic series featuring both groups.

“KISS is all things to all people,” frontman Gene Simmons told The Post.

And the rock star insisted that while an adult might see his wild, onstage persona one way, a kid would view it another.


DRAWN TOGETHER: “Archie Meets KISS” No. 1.
“A 5- or 10-year-old fan doesn’t look at the lascivious nature of my tongue the same way someone much older would -- such a thing is not obvious to a 5-year-old, and nor should it be,’’ Simmons said.

The series debuts later this fall.

SALEM NEWS
IRATE TRUCK OWNER CHASES DOWN THEFT SUSPECT, RECOVERS KISS TAPE

Thanks to Eric for sending this article to KOL.

By Julie Manganis

A Salem man who may have planned to "rock and roll all night and party every day" instead settled in at the Salem police lockup Wednesday night, charged with breaking into a pickup truck and stealing several items, including a Kiss tape.

It was the truck's irate owner, Matthew Jenkins, 24, who chased suspect Raymond Garland, 40, from Pond Street to the intersection of Washington and Lafayette streets, then grabbed him and flagged down a passing police car early Wednesday evening.

Jenkins told police he was inside his house and heard the door to his 1993 Chevy pickup closing. He ran out to the truck and immediately noticed it had been gone through, the glove box left open. Then he noticed a man with a trash bag pedaling away on a bike, Patrolman Deni Gaito said in his report.

Archie Artist Dan Parent Talks 'Archie Meets KISS' Comic Book

KISS Invades Riverdale! Lock Up Betty and Veronica

Eric Shirey, Yahoo! Contributor Network

Legendary rock group KISS is making an appearance in issue #628 of Archie Comics. The comic will be hitting specialty store shelves on December 28, 2011. I had the opportunity to talk to Archie Comics artist Dan Parent, who has worked on the comic series since 1987.

Are you a KISS fan? If so, what does the band mean to you?

I am definitely a KISS fan from all the way back in Junior High. The band is more than just a rock group to me. Its part of my personal history, as music often is with many people. KISS is also a part of Americana now, much like Archie. That may be why the two go so well together!

LOGAN'S FAVORITE DRUMMER
KISSONLINE.com
KISS IS EVERYWHERE!

My name is Logan "Robot" Gladden - I'm a 7 year old drummer and I recently got to do this interview video for Chuck E. Cheese restaurants. When they asked me who my favorite drummer was ..... I of course told them Eric Singer of KISS! The video even has a clip of Eric rockin' out at a KISS concert that I went to, and it's being shown every hour of every day in all Chuck E. Cheese restaurants nationwide as part of their Fall 2011 Show. Also included are clips from my "Bang the Drum All Day" video where I was dressed as a "Little Pasqually" - the pizza chef/drummer for the Chuck E. Cheese Fun Time Band. Both videos show close ups of my Pearl ES-1465 Eric Singer Signature Snare Drum!! So if you are in a Chuck E. Cheese restaurant this fall, look for me and Eric on the t.v. screens and be sure to tell them Robot sent ya!! I hope you enjoy the video & thanks Eric for being such an inspiration to little rockers everywhere! Rock On!!

Robot
