You wanted the best, and you got the best”¦
“¦but this ain’t it.
If you’re an adult, KISS Kids is terrible. If you’re under the age of 7, KISS Kids is ok. The End.
But then I found out IDW and Gene Simmons were sincere about it. I couldn’t believe it. This is perhaps the worst KISS idea since those coffins, I thought. And I was right.
Young children will probably dig it, especially kids of fans who have been bitten by the KISS bug… but older readers will find this experience tedious. While the art is fun to look at, KISS Kids, as a concept, would work much better as a television cartoon series than a comic book.
Remember Muppet Babies? I loved that show. And being KISS fans, we’re thrilled with the announcement from IDW that they have ANOTHER new comic book about KISS coming out: KISS Kids.
Coming this Fall, KISS Kids will focus on the KISS Characters as children as they take on nemeses such as Principal Elder, and Wicked Lester. A preview of KISS Kids will on the back cover of all four issues of the upcoming Kiss Solo series, starting on April 10, when Kiss Solo #1: The Demon is released.
