Legion of Super Heroes news, First Looks -- and much more!!!


Platinum Studios and KISS Catalog Ltd., the merchandising empire created and managed by original members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley, have announced the creation of a new comic book entertainment company, the KISS Comics Group.

This is the first time KISS will be producing its own comic book-based characters.

The line kicks off at the Wizard World Los Angeles on March 16-18 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, where both Simmons and Stanley will be present to promote the debut of KISS 4K #1, Destroyer Edition. The Destroyer Edition will be a super-sized comic book, and the ongoing KISS 4K monthly series will begin in May.

Newcomer Ricky Sprague is writing KISS 4K, with #1 art by painter Kevin Crossley. Rodolfo Migliari (Freshmen) is the cover artist.

KISS 4K tells the story of the transformation of the KISS band members into eternal, evil-fighting spirits. However, once they transform, they are unable to transform back into their human forms.

"Gene Simmons approached me with the idea of launching KISS Comics Group and working together has simply been incredible," said Scott Mitchell Rosenberg, Platinum Studios¹ founder and chairman. "Platinum Studios has been working with independent comic book creators for years; KISS' worldwide legion of fans spans an enormous age range, providing this new company with a given global audience."

"We've had licensed KISS comic books before but never our own imprint and never with the wide reach across so many multi-media platforms," Simmons said. "Paul Stanley and I are personally involved in all day-to-day decisions and we are looking forward to extending the KISS legacy, images and sound to our fans around the world."

"As the iconic KISS characters have continued to evolve far beyond our beginning in rock music, we have always looked for the ideal situation for a KISS comic book outlet that was as far reaching as we originally conceived and intended. Platinum fills that slot perfectly," Stanley said.

George Perez is tackling his first monthly title in three years with DC Comics' The Brave and The Bold, which launches next month.

"It took me a few pages to get back into the monthly grind, but I'm having a great, great time," Perez said last weekend at the Phoenix Cactus Comicon in Mesa, Ariz.

Perez reiterated that the title, written by Mark Waid, will not be a "Batman and..." book, although Batman and Green Lantern are featured in the first issue.

"I recently drew a cover that had Supergirl with a cycle chick outfit and on a spacecycle, dragging Lobo in tow," Perez said.

"I don't know about the plot of that issue because I do the covers in advance, but I love that Mark Waid is throwing me all these curveballs."

Perez said that a convention appearance in Pittsburgh in late April will be his last until 2009.

BlueWater Productions has announced that it has reached an agreement with Atomic Pop Art that will have them publishing a series of graphic novels throughout 2007.

"This new arrangement will allow Atomic Pop Art to bring back some of our best work from our past with Image Comics and Alias Comics, while we devote more of our own time and efforts to developing new stories, to have them ready for readers on time each month," said BlueWater Productions president and managing editor, Darren G. Davis. "We're very pleased that Atomic Pop Art will be joining us in this project."

Some of the collected issues were previously unreleased, after the books' previous publisher decided in January to cease printing. Among the never-before-seen books are Venus #1, 10th Muse #14-17, and The Legend of Isis #11-12. Because of the publisher's decision not to print these issues -- some of which play a vital role in wrapping up continuing storylines - they are now available only in these graphic novels.

"It's unfortunate that the publisher was not able to continue producing these books, but they are still wonderful issues and very important to the characters and the BlueWater universe," Davis said. "Because of that, we have decided to include them in these upcoming graphic novels for fans to still enjoy."
