We were just drawn to it like moths to a flame (perhaps). ;-)

Perhaps! Or perhaps, it's been so long ago that I don't remember!

I remember knowing that they were a rock group that wore make up.
But I can pinpoint the day I fell in love with their music. Playing baseball in front of a neighborhood friends house one summer day in '76. My friends parents were blasting their new Destroyer album out the windows, it really pumped me up. I was officially a member of the Kiss Army right then and there.
Good Times!

Since I mentioned it in an earlier post, who is old enough to remember buying the albums and the goodies that came within? From Love Gun, there was a cardboard "love gun". Alive II had a series of temporary tattoos. Rock and Roll Over had a large decal of the album artwork in I remember correctly. I don't know if Destroyer had an insert or not - I think I may have had that one on 8-track!

Yes,as mentioned previously,i had the Love Gun,The masks from the solo singles(except Ace!) the posters from the solo albums,and the poster insert from the Dynasty album.
Also,being Marvel comics fans,how could we not be drawn to the cover of Destroyer? Then there were the ads in Marvel comics for the Kiss comic,with each member`s blood in the printing ink! Plus there were ads for the solo albums in Marvel comics of the time too.

I missed your mention of that Bill! I didn't have time to read the entire thread earlier. My apologies!

Love Kelly's art on Destroyer and Love Gun!

I know a lot of people like the unused "brown" Destroyer cover art, but I like Ace and Peter's outfits better in the "blue" cover.

Well, I learned something new today! I didn't even know about a different version of Destroyer!

KISS #2 was pretty good. Story progressing at a relatively slow pace. The youngsters are atop the surface world now. KISS robots are pursuing them (think of the robots as being akin to ED-209). The Elders underneath want some of the kids back, considering the others to be expendable. And all is not what it seems.

Very much a written-for-the-trade storyline. Bit slow, but I'm with it for the duration. Art is beautiful. The dystopian nature of the world is perfect. And, besides, it is KISS. ;-)
