Comic Book Review: KISS #5

by Eric Shirley / www.moviegeekfeed.com

I'm still not entirely sure how the actual band fits into Amy Chu's storyline, but I'm having a great time enjoying the ride she's taking us on with KISS #5 and it's predecessors. Half the fun is not knowing your destination as the finely illustrated issue rolls along. The last page is a jawdropper that's sure to leave readers shocked and yearning for more.

Things are heating up fast, and when we say heat, we mean HOT. The ventilation system is broken and the city is running out of air! Meanwhile, Noa and Eran are still reeling from the revelations about their past. The four friends must reconcile their differences to save everyone, and with the help of MORPHEUS, solve the big mystery of Blackwell before it's too late in KISS #5.

KISS #5 is rated T+ for Teen Plus. Like I said last issue, I really don't know why it's rated anything over a regular Teen. There's less gore, violence, profanity, and frightening and intense scenes than we get in a monthly issue of any of the DC Comics super hero titles.

Amy Chu handles the writing duties for KISS #5. Kewber Baal provides artwork for the issue. It was released on February 15th through Dynamite Entertainment. The book is 32 pages long.

KISS #5 is available now in print and digital editions.


ROCK GODS KISS guitarist Tommy Thayer is proud of Scottish roots

BY CHRIS SWEENEY / www.TheScottishSun.co.uk The axe-wielding black-and-white knight is gearing up for the superstar band’s latest spectacular world tour. Speaking to The Scottish Sun from his Los Angeles home, rock god Tommy says: “Being in KISS is absolutely as good as you’d imagine. And I’m not just saying that. “I’ve been so fortunate to play lead guitar for one of the biggest rock groups in history — and you cannot find anything wrong with that. “I wake up every morning thinking the same thing, ‘I’m a lucky son of a bitch’.” Tommy is counting down the days until the face-painted warriors — who have sold more than 100million albums — hit The SSE Hydro in Glasgow in May. And as he gets read to wow his Scots fans, he spoke fondly of his Celtic heritage. He says: “The Scottish fans are dear to our hearts. Glasgow is going to be a fantastic show. “And I have Scottish roots. My mother’s family is from Scotland. “We are Cunninghams. My understanding is that my family fled Scotland as they were horse thieves. “So they had to run away to the new world. “I’m pretty much one of you. Maybe a few other things mixed in here and there but I’m Scottish deep down.” The gig here will also allow Tommy to indulge one of his unlikely passions — art collecting.
