Neal Adams Unveils Decades-Old, Never-Before-Seen Marvel KISS Art
While this is an exciting find for both KISS and comics fans alike, no one is more pleased than KISS co-founder Gene Simmons himself, who is also a longtime devoted comics and Neal Adams fan. "Neal Adams' art, was on a level most of the other guys could only dream of," Simmons professed in a statement to CBR. "From Magnus Robot Fighter, to Green Arrow and the X-Men. Now, a newly discovered, and previously unknown (to me) great piece of art by Neal Adams depicting KISS."

The image appears to have been designed as a wraparound cover, with the words "Destroy KISS" serving as a possible title for the undeveloped special. Adams' image shows a wizard-like character looming large over the band as they perform in concert, but the context behind the drawing might never be known. "My mind reels at the missed opportunities of having Neal pencil and ink KISS comics," Simmons added. "One can only dream." Adams is currently in possession of the art, which is reportedly available for sale.
