Comic Book Review: KISS #8

If Dynamite's KISS title can get any weirder and off the wall, it just did. The sci-fi aspect of the story gets punched up a notch once again by adding laser-firing spaceships and alien invaders. Eight issues in and it doesn't appear that writer Amy Chu has run out of ideas to keep the book plowing full steam ahead. She continues to use the band, their music and lyrics, and personas as symbols for freedom and power as our heroes face down an enemy bent on breaching the floating city of Blackwell.

A new era and a new KISS Army are born. But when they discover they're not alone, they will need more than music and Morpheus to guide them back to Earth in KISS #8.

KISS #8 is rated T+ for Teen Plus. I've said it before and I'll say it again: There's really nothing here content-wise outside of the norm for T-rated comics. The book contains, violence and some frightening and intense images. Although a couple of the past issues of the series had profanity, this one is void of it.

I look forward to each new issue of the KISS comic series. Kewber Baal's interior artwork is consistently top-notch and ravishing to behold. The cover art is always eye-catching and most of the variants give us something worthy of framing and collecting.

Amy Chu wrote KISS #8. Kewber Baal illustrates the issue. It was released on May 24th through Dynamite Comics. The book is 32 pages long.

KISS #8 is available now in print and digital editions.
