Review: Kiss Kids #1

If the Muppets can profit on an infant version of themselves, so, too, can Kiss. Broken down into a series of shorts, Kiss Kids covers fun events like getting new shows, birthday parties, and back to school shopping.

This comic is aimed at children, and one can tell with the wide-eyed and cartoonish depiction of the characters.  However, so many of the little in-jokes are aimed at those who know the band.  There will be some difficulty in the general public (outside the Kiss Army) finding a reason to buy this book.  Yes, the stories are good, but parents would probably pick up Peanuts or another better-known family oriented comic.


So if you are a Kiss fan with a child, pick up this book and laugh at all the great nods to the Greatest band in the world.  Everyone else, be aware that you might not like the book since you don’t know why something like The Demon’s boots eating things would be funny.
