On this day in 1977: The rock group KISS provided Marvel Comics with vials of their blood to be mixed with printers’ ink for their upcoming comic.
Today’s quote: “This is to certify that KISS members, Gene Simmons, Ace Frehley, Paul Stanley, and Peter Criss, have each donated blood which is being collectively mixed with the red ink to be used for the first issue of the Marvel/KISS comics. The blood was extracted on February 21st, 1977 at Nassau Caliseum and has been under guarded refrigeration until this day when it was delivered to the Borden Ink plant in Depew, New York.”
