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.

Promoters of Long Beach Comic Con Add New Jersey Comic Expo to Their Stable of Shows!
MAD Event Management is proud to announce the third addition to their comic convention line up, the New Jersey Comic Expo which is scheduled for November 21 & 22, 2015 at the New Jersey Convention & Exposition Center in Edison, NJ. Joining its sister conventions, Long Beach Comic Con and Long Beach Comic Expo, New Jersey Comic Expo will be part of a three-show series.

"The success of films and television shows based on comic book characters originates with the creators," said Martha Donato, President of MAD. "The comic shows we produce are first and foremost produced for anyone who has an affinity for comics, animation, games - really any type of pop culture that values content and its creators. We strive to create an environment that brings together a group of people who want to celebrate a culture and a lifestyle. And most of our team who produces the shows are based in the NY/NJ area, so this is a great place for us to do a home show."
