the Kiss comic
anyway, this turned KISS into superheroes in the Marvel Universe proper, and had them fight that other fantastic foursome's main villain, Dr. Doom.
it's a pretty good story, with loads of cameos from many of Marvel's roster of heroes, plus a lot of action. the story is by Steve Gerber and the art by Alan Weiss (the cover, I think), John and Sal Buscema and Rich Buckler. I love the cover (and the cover for the Destroyer LP as well). these are my favorite KISS costumes, probably due to this comic book.
the inside art is good as well.
before this comic, I was determined not to like the band. but after it, and a listen to KISS Alive! I was hooked. there was a second comic book, but it wasn't quite as good, for a variety of reasons. now I wanna read the comic again. wonder if there's a cheap reprint out there?
