In 1977 Marvel Comics published Super Special KISS 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.

The rock group KISS provided Marvel Comics with vials of their blood to be mixed with printers’ ink used in Marvel Comics Super Special (Kiss) #1 (1978)
