KISS Them For Me

The rock band KISS is proud of being a bunch of capitalist whores.  If there is anything they can slap the KISS logo on, they will do so.  Hell, two of the band even did lines for a phony KISS Christmas special that appeared on the TV during a Family Guy episode.

KISS has done comic books for a while.  There was their first one with Marvel (legend says members of the band mixed some of their own blood in with the red printing ink for the issue.  Partly true.  There was a mix-up, and the ink in question wound up being used on Sports Illustrated instead).  They hatched a deal with IDW bringing out more KISS comics.  There was a recent KISS/Archie crossover.

Well, when people want to shamelessly merchandise but they have no creative ideas, what do they do?

Babies and little kids!

Introducing KISS Kids, coming soon from IDW.  I shit you not.

What, did they raid Rob Liefeld's rejected jokes from Shrink?

Wait... do the current members of KISS solely own the likeness rights to former members of the band?

I would imagine so, simply because Simmons would be likely to check every angle and, if there is any way to do it, he would. Given the amount of money at stake, if the former members could do anything, they would.

This assumes, of course, that the former members aren't already getting a likeness rights cut. It could be no legal precedent is established, but Simmons pays them enough that they aren't going to push the issue.
