DRESSED TO KILL
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Hey KISS!

Just wanted to show a picture of us four just before we left for the Winnipeg show. Thought we would go and support you guys "Dressed to Kill", not knowing however it would be a big hit for other fans as it seem we couldn't walk around the concourse for five seconds without someone wanting our pictures, we felt like rock stars.

Just goes to show what legacy you have left over the years, is still as big as ever. Thank you guys for such a great show it was awesome, me and my dad, his friend Denis and his son Joel had the time of our lives, shouting it out loud with thousands. Thank you once again for coming to Winnipeg, hope you guys can come back soon. Remember "WINNIPEG LOVES KISS"

KOMPENDIUM
KISSONLINE
In '77, blood from each member of the rock band KISS was drawn by a registered nurse and poured into vats of red ink used for printing the band's first comic book. It was created by Marvel legend Stan Lee and was the beginning of a hugely successful KISS comic book franchise. All are now out of print.

Now, for the first time, the KISS Kompendium combines the most breathtaking KISS comic books into a lush oversized collector's compilation. Brought to life by graphic illustrations as riveting and hardcore as the band's real-life fire-breathing line-up, the Demon (Gene Simmons), Starchild (Paul Stanley), and the other band members' superhero alter egos defeat evil in over 1200 pages of stunning KISS comics!

This is a book authorized by KISS. KISS founding members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley have contributed the forewords to this. The book also includes exclusive never-before-seen backstage photos from KISS' newest tour along with commentary by the band-members.

This is a must-have for every KISS fan eagerly awaiting the band's new album, their first in over 10 years, and a perfect holiday gift for comic-book lover to pour over time and time again.

The KISS Kompendium, over 1,200 pages of KISS comics - on sale December 8, 2009 - is available for pre-order at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, WalMart and wherever books are sold.

THIS DUNE BUGGY
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Hi KISS!

These are a few pictures of our dune buggy named Kiss This!! As you can see, you are the highlight of the paint scheme. We take it out to Glamis, CA and it is a big hit with everyone. It has a Ford Mustang Cobra motor with 500 horsepower!! We have yet to see another one like this. It took two years to be built and worth every penny we paid for it.

Thank you for your time:
Tammy & Mike Huard

CHICAGO NOW
By Jill Cataldo

This weekend marked milestones in my sons' young lives -- and in the life of any KISS fan. The boys attended their first KISS concerts. Now, the uninitiated might question whether taking children to a loud, pyrotechnic-filled spectacle is a good idea at all. But when you're a die-hard, devoted fan of the hottest band in the land, and also a parent, it's only natural to reach a point where you'll want to introduce your children to KISS.

At ages two and four, my boys are well aware of their mother's passion for KISS. They've never known a world in which KISS did not exist. And, for our children, KISS is everywhere -- KISS songs rock our car when I'm driving to them to play group each week. KISS magnets hold their artwork up on our refrigerator. KISS's makeup faces are floating on rubber ducks when they take their baths. KISS is emblazoned on their clothes, posted on their bedroom walls, and carried in their hearts.

Ever since the beginning of the tour, as Mom and Dad have jaunted off to various cities throughout the Alive 35 tour, our boys have asked when they could attend their first KISS concert. With two back-to-back Midwest KISS shows over the past weekend, it seemed the perfect time to fully initiate them into KISS World.
