Comic Book Review: KISS: The Demon #1

Writers Amy Chu and Erik Burnham put the focus on Gene Simmons's alter-ego in this enigmatic debut issue of a new solo series from Dynamite. Artist Eman Casallos illustrates the narrative in a vivid style that blends well with the flagship KISS title, but hold its own at the same time. Unlike the main monthly, KISS actually appears in the book, but the main storyline still focuses on a coming-of-age storyline steeped in mystery and personal drama. KISS are bulked up like superheroes the way you would rightfully expect them to look in the pages of a comic.

Before Blackwell, before Morpheus, there was the MUSIC. In a small town in Iowa, three young KISS fans meet at a concert and form their own band, unaware they are about to embark on a journey that will not only change their lives, but also the fate of the world in KISS: The Demon #1.

KISS: The Demon #1 is rated T+ for Teen Plus. It contains violence, profanity, and mild adult situations. I really can't explain why it is given a rating of T+, as there's nothing found that goes beyond the normal content of any mainstream monthly superhero comic book title.

KISS: The Demon #1 is available now in print and digital editions.
