On Monday Gene Simmons announced a new collaboration between his band KISS and Marvel. He said in a tweet that accessories and drinkware from Bioworld, home goods from Jay Franco, and posters from Trends International are to be released as part of the exciting co-brand.
“A privilege and an honor to follow up our debut 1978 Marvel relationship, KISS Comics, where we met Spider-Man, Dr. Doom and the Fantastic Four with this new partnership. This is as cool as it gets.” Said Simmons with Paul Stanley in a joint statement.
“The strength and power of the Marvel Universe has inspired musicians, artists, and creative talent for more than 80 years,” added Paul Gitter, SVP, Marvel Licensing. “Our KISS x Marvel collaboration continues the legacy of working with these amazing rock and roll hall of famers, and we are beyond excited to bring fans a loud and proud merchandise collection that screams Marvel style, with rock and roll attitude.”
KISS has always been amazing at marketing and selling products based on their brand and this is just the newest thing that we get to expect from them. They have been an icon in rock history and have inspired many tribute bands around the world. We’re excited to see these hit shelves sometime this year and will be updating you when we get product images which will hopefully be soon!
