Echo released the second design in its "Kiss Poster Series" with the legendary Frank Kozik on Friday, March 19.
"For this amazing opportunity, I wanted to combine the raw energy of a great comic book cover with the power of KISS and rock and roll," said Kozik. "It being for a show in Japan, I naturally had to make the giant robots! This all in a style reminiscent of the era in which the show was actually performed."
Kozik's poster commemorating the legendary KISS performances from April 1, 2 and 4, 1977 in Tokyo, Japan, is the second design in the Echo "Kiss Poster Series". This 11-color screen print measures 18"x24" and is available in these limited-edition variations:
* KISS April 1, 2 & 4, 1977 Tokyo Japan (Gallery Edition) – 150 pieces / $60
* KISS April 1, 2 & 4, 1977 Tokyo Japan (Sparkle Foil Variant) – 75 pieces / $80
* KISS April 1, 2 & 4, 1977 Tokyo Japan (Lava Foil Variant) – 75 pieces / $80
Echo worked with Epic Rights, the band's licensing agency, to execute this product launch.
