I was going through my old wizard magazines and I just dug up an old interview with Todd McFarlane and Gene Simmons(of KISS) from 1998

here is an Batman related exerpt.

Wizard: Anything other comics you enjoy?

Gene: There are very few books that really hold my attention. I was curious enough to pick up the Rob Liefeld-Jim Lee “Heroes Reborn” stuff from Marvel. I feel I’m missing the sense of wonder you have as a kid. I wanted to be these superheroes as a kid. But now, I’ve surpassed those guys. I am on stage. I do fly through the air and all that. But I haven’t died and come back to wreck havoc in this world like Spawn has. Every so often, Witchblade and The Darkness are interesting, but I won’t pick up every one. I’ll go and scan. I’ve picked up a few issues. The Jeph Loeb/Tim Sale Batman “Halloween” books are always good stuff.

It's interesting to know that Gene has read TLH.
 
Hmmm. I can see that. It's pretty intense and dark, but classic at the same time. Nice to know someone as cool as Gene likes comics.
 
I WANNA ROCK AND ROLL ALL NIIIIIGHT, AND PARTY EVERY DAY!
 
He likes Liefeld!???
That would make him the expert...
 
That is ****ing awesome.
 
Was Ace the cat one?

If Ace was the cat one, hell yes.

Sorry...not exactly a big fan of KISS, so y'know...
 
The cat was Peter Criss...


"Lois, you chose Peter Criss! No one wants to be Peter Criss, not even Peter Criss!"
-Peter
Ace was a guitarist.

Peter was the Cat. Ace was Space Ace.
 
Ace Frehley kicks ass, he sang the best songs and his solo stuff was also good.

I always find it cool when celebrities mention that they read/collect comics.
 
I remeber hearing that back when Gene was a school teacher before KISS, one of the reasons he got fired was doing a class lesson on an issue of Spider-Man

Darn tootin!!! Ace was easily the best and didn't have a sissified solo record!!! Gene does bang Shannon Tweed though.

Oh, how I hate you, me from one year ago:cmad:
Yep. You were pretty ****in' dumb. KISS is one of the worst ****in' bands to ever walk the Earth. In the words of Dave Mustaine, "they should make a Kiss Koffin with Gene Simmons in it."

Yeah, I hate year-ago me too.

Hell, I hate 10-minutes-ago me.
