‘Archie Meets KISS’: Watch The Trailer [Video]

Following a strangely plausible visit from President Barack Obama and former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, the town of Riverdale will play host to another set of celebrities from IRL: rock n’ roll legends KISS. The band will visit Archie and the gang during the midst of a supernatural invasion that sees Riverdale overrun with monsters and zombies. Written by Alex Segura and illustrated by Dan Parent and created in full cooperation with KISS’ Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons, the story begins in November’s #627 and will run for four issues. Check out the animated trailer after the cut.As a consequence of a spell cast by Sabrina, the teenage witch, the citizens of Riverdale find themselves up to their necks in the undead. In “Archie Meets KISS,” the rock stars show up to help out, which provides for what we expect will be numerous clever crossover jokes courtesy of writer Alex Segura, who is also Archie Comics’ prodigious Executive Director of Marketing and Publicity.

The trailer was put together by Alex Kropinak, who ComicsAlliance readers know from his work on Marvel What The-!? and Kirby Krackle’ music video for “Who Watches The Watcher?”

“Archie Meets KISS” begins in Archie #627, on sale in November and available in finer comics shops and Archie Comics Digital. Numerous covers are available by artists Dan Parent and Francesco Francavilla, which we bring you courtesy of of Comic Book Resources.
