OUR WEDDING CAKE!
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Hi Everyone,

My name is Joshua, and I just felt I had to share OUR wedding cake with you! Me and my wonderful wife just tied the knot Aug. 20,2011. With our wedding colors of blue, black and purple, we decided we wanted to do everything off-the-wall, a Rock n' Roll wedding theme, an electric guitar wedding march, a KISS wedding / reception cd, and even a 3-tier wedding cake to top it all off. The sides of the cake reads - "You May KISS The Bride." Personally, I thought the "album cover" cake looked way to nice to cut up and serve, so we decide to keep and freeze it, instead of the smaller top tier. (;-p)

ARCHIE MEETS ISSUE #2 VARIANT COVER
BLEEDINGCOOL.com
Archie Meets KISS Gets Rather Wonderful Variant Cover

by Rich Johnston

This is Francesco Francavilla’s variant cover (on the right) to Archie #628 with Archie Meets Kiss Part Two. I think it’s rather spectacular. I’m suddenly wondering what a Vertigo Archie comic would look like.

And here’s the standard cover (on the left) by Dan Parent. Which, you know, isn’t bad or anything…

GLOBAL LICENSE!
By: Tony Lisanti

If you ever find yourself humming the tune of "Rock and Roll All Night," dressing up as Demon or Starchild at Halloween, or chugging a Destroyer brand beer, then you have experienced the world of KISSmania and taken a peek at what it's like to be a part of the popular KISS Army.

KISS, the iconic rock band led by its co-founders Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley, manager Doc McGhee, along with their partnership with Live Nation Merchandise led by industry veteran Dell Furano, have built a multi-million dollar integrated marketing and merchandising brand that rivals many of the successful properties not only in the history of music licensing but across the entirety of brand licensing.

According to Furano, CEO of Live Nation Merchandise, KISS has generated $500 million in retail sales of licensed merchandise from concerts, online sales and at retail since 1996, making it the largest and best selling rock and roll band.

This legendary rock group has not only been focused on the creativity of their music and stage show, but it has always been in tune with the business side that has now produced a wide array of licensed products from condoms to coffins, from lighters to lottery tickets and from cars to cruises.

KISSONLINE
Here's a great fan-filmed clip of the KISS meet and greet experience at Montreal's Heavy MTL festival this summer, along with a note from the fans who made it:

"We are sending you this great video we made about the ‘Meet and greet with Kiss on July 24th in Montréal’! The energy was over the top, the guys were great and the video tells it all… What a show it was!! The band was hotter than ever!! On fire really!! Paul Stanley WAS and STILL IS the no.1 Frontman in Rock, hands down! It amazes us after all these years that you guys are still giving us great rock and roll with everything around it, and still on top of your game! Thanks for everything!"
