Noble, Oklahoma, Joe Degraffenreid, 1994. Paperback. 16 issues, including both variants of #35. Noble, Oklahoma: Joe Degraffenreid, 1994-2004. The late Joseph “Joe D” Degraffenreid (1970-2013) was inducted into the KISS Army at the tender age of six. “By 3rd grade I was collecting hardcore like all my friends did,” he recalled. This included KISS Machine, Firehouse, N.E.K.C.N. Strike, KISS Crazy, and the other early KISS fanzines, which inspired him to start KISS HELL in 1992. Filled with original KISS art and comic strips, exclusive interviews, articles on various aspects of KISStory, concert and expo reports, album reviews, etc. KISS HELL attracted an international following at around the same time Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons reunited with Ace Frehley and Peter Criss for the highly successful Psycho Circus (1998) album and world tour. Assembled using the cut and paste method and professionally printed. Original colorful paper wrappers (8 ½” x 11”), bound with staples. Just a hint of edgewear; else fine. Accompanied by two pieces of original full color artwork by resident KISS HELL artist Larry Blake, four other examples of his work, and a KISS HELL sample zine issued in 1996 that features one of the aforementioned original Blake illustrations. Also included are a KISS HELL sticker, a color KISS HELL flyer, a signed photograph of KISS drummer Eric Singer, more than 200 glossy prints of photographs Degraffenreid shot at the June 11, 2004 KISS concert in Dallas, Texas, and hundreds of negatives of images he captured at various metal and hard rock concerts in the early 2000s. Fine .
