What's the next step for the world famous (and quite possibly most recognized band ever) KISS? As CNN reports, KISS have a long history of merchandising (M&Ms, Hello Kitty, urns) and are now set to make comic book history when they team up with Archie Comics this fall, adding another achievement to their multifaceted career spanning several decades. After conquering the music world at large, the band will now take on zombies upon their arrival to Riverdale and not even their extreme marketability will be enough to stop them alone. That's where The Archies and Sabrina the Teenage Witch come in.
When propositioned by Gene Simmons about the idea of doing an Archie/KISS crossover, Archie Comics Co-CEO Jon Goldwater "thought he was kidding." But it's no joke, as anyone who saw the Archie Meets Kiss trailer at the NYCC Archie panel will tell you. With KISS stamping their brand on so many products, it seems almost inevitable that a meeting with Archie would take place. This is however no ordinary crossover and with a little magic from Sabrina sprinkled in, expect anything to happen.
The epic meeting of two classic brands is upon us and it's going to blow everyone away! Get ready for action and excitement when the 4-part event gets rolling Nov. 30 brought to you by writer Alex Segura and artist Dan Parent with variant covers provided by Francesco Francavilla.
