KISS - End Of The Road Tour To Receive Comic Book Tie-In

As KISS prepares for its End Of The Road World Tour, Dynamite Entertainment has announced a new comic book series titled KISS: The End, which will celebrate the band's 45 years of recording and performing while also telling an original story that will incorporate pieces of the band's history and elements from  the actual tour, reports Drew Mollo of CBR.

Returning writer Amy Chu, who helped launch the Dynamite KISS series in 2016, will be joined by artist Edu Menna (Twilight Zone, ZNation) and letterer Troy Peteri (Amazing Spider-Man, Witchblade), who promise an epic story worthy of the band's legacy.

Fans will have a choice between multiple covers - two of which can be seen below - including those by artist Stuart Sayger (KISS: Blood And Stardust), Jorge Fornes (Batman, Magnus), Denis Medri (Red Hood / Arsenal) and covers featuring classic KISS photos.

Here is the official synopsis from Dynamite: A young man finds himself possibly dead and wrangling with some of life's most eternal questions. It's a good thing he runs into Death, who sets him on a path to track down their own demon offspring. His prophetic guides in this quest are none other than the otherworldly KISS - The Starchild, The Demon, The Spaceman and The Catman. Their help will be needed, with plenty of peril along the way.

KISS: The End #1 is slated for release in April. Learn more at this location.
