Archie Meets KISS
Denizens of rock, KISS, mean different things to different folks. Now Gene Simmons and his Kiss brethren have been immortalized in comic book form.

The band recently partnered with Archie Comics to release a four-issue storyline called Archie Meets Kiss.

Evidently, the story will involve Kiss helping Archie and the gang to protect Riverdale from a horde of demons. Yes, that’s right- it’s a comic book, ergo, suspension of disbelief.

"Kiss is all things to all people...A 5- or 10-year-old fan doesn’t look at the lascivious nature of my tongue the same way someone much older would -- such a thing is not obvious to a 5-year-old, and nor should it be,” Simmons said to the New York Post.

Simmons and his shenanigans can be seen on Gene Simmons Family Jewels, which premieres October 4, on A&E.

Archie Meets Kiss will hit U.S. stores on November 11. Now, even the folks of Riverdale can rock-and-roll all night.
