Rock Superheroes

The first KISS comic book hit the newsstands on June 28, 1977. The comic won accolades for its publisher Marvel Comics, which sold hundreds of thousands of copies to the supergroup's fans. However, it was not the first appearance of the band in comic-book form (that came with a guest shot in Marvel's Howard the Duck #12 earlier that year), nor was it to be the band's last. And though KISS's success in comics is perhaps the most well known (and oft-cited), it is not a unique phenomenon for rock musicians, who have often guest-starred in both real-life and superheroic form.
