ABC NEWS
By Candace Smith

Two iconic American figures have joined forces, but it may not be the ones you expect. All-American teen Archie Andrews has partnered with rock ‘n’ roll legend Kiss in an upcoming series called, eponymously, ”Archie Meets Kiss.”

The four-part series launches Nov. 30 and, in the words of writer Alex Segura of Archie Comics, “brings together two pieces of Americana for the first time.”

Jon Goldwater, CEO of Archie Comics, is a self-described “crazy Kiss fan,” even having a Kiss-themed party for his son’s Bar Mitzvah.

But Goldwater told ABC News that the idea of a partnership between Archie and Kiss came from Kiss bassist-vocalist Gene Simmons.

“One day, I was lucky enough to get a call,” Goldwater said.

Simmons flew him out to L.A. to discuss the idea of a partnership.

“His ideas were extremely inspiring, and we thought it would be a wonderful thing for Archie,” Goldwater said.

Simmons told ABC News that the partnership with Archie and Kiss seems natural.

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.

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!

FAN HELPS WOUNDED WARRIORS!
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
I rode my KISS Harley on a 9-11 Pride ride and we raised $538.00 for the Wounded Warriors. We had 30 riders in our group. We also stopped at the Soldiers home in Orting Wa. We donated Harley shirts, visited and gave our thanks to the disabled Veterans living there. Just want to say Thank you to KISS for your support of our country and everything you do for our veterans.

Rock on Jeff Hopkins
