Today in KISStory - 1977

Today in KISStory - 1977

1977 May 26 - The blood KISS had "donated" is mixed with the ink at Borden Ink Plant, Depew, NY, for the first KISS Marvel Comic.

Marvel Comics published a magazine-format full-color comic book presenting the band as superheroes. Blood from each band member was drawn by a registered nurse, witnessed by a notary public, and poured into the vats of red ink used for printing the comic at Marvel's Borden Ink plant in Depew, New York.

A subsequent rumor maintained that, due to a mix-up at the printers', the batch of red ink containing the blood of KISS members was actually used for a print run of Sports Illustrated magazine and did not end up in the Marvel Comic as intended.
