Rock & Roll All Night To The Bitter End With KISS’s ‘The End’ From Dynamite

by James Ferguson

After decades of rock & roll, KISS is embarking on an “End of the Road Tour.” To celebrate this, Dynamite Entertainment has announced KISS: The End, a new comic series debuting in April from writer Amy Chu, artist Edu Menna, and letterer Troy Peteri.

KISS: The End picks up with a young man who is possibly dead and full of some of life’s most eternal questions. He’s run into Death who has tasked him with tracking down their own demon offspring. His prophetic guides in this quest are the members of KISS: The Starchild, The Demon, The Spaceman, and The Catman. Hell need their help as there is plenty of peril along the way.
Writer Amy Chu says:

I’m totally stoked to be back on KISS, especially for the final tour. And to be working with Edu Menna who drew my friend Craig Engler’s ZNation, it’s pretty awesome! I’ll be incorporating parts of the actual tour and KISS history into the storyline, and expect lots of Easter eggs, just like in the previous Elder run!

There will be several covers to choose from for KISS: The End including work from Stuart Sayger, Jorge Fornes, and Denis Medri. There will also be a cover featuring classic KISS photos from their library.

Artist Edu Menna adds:

I’ve listened to KISS since my teenage years and their Unplugged album is a favorite. I’ve followed Amy’s work and have had ‘envy’ of artists who partnered with her…finally my turn arrived! I always try to bring something new for each project. In this work I want to use my style combined with the elegance of the European masters. I hope fans enjoy what we’re putting together.

You can’t deny the parallels between KISS‘ on stage personas and comics. It’s not a stretch for them to jump into funnybooks at all. This is far from their first foray into the medium too.
Editor Kevin Ketner says:

A lot of books have rock and a lot of books have roll, but none of them are going to combine the two like we are with this one. This is the first comic that is going to make your ears ring. So go hydrate, do some stretches, and get your LCS to pre-order your copy.

Look for KISS: The End #1 at your local comic shop in April 2019.
