KISS Vol 1 No 26 – Highlights

I’ll be dropping more amazing stuff from KISS in posts to come.

From the same offices and staff of The East Village Other, KISS was described by the New York Times as “so countercultural that it made The Village Voice look like a church circular.” Kiss was an underground adult newspaper founded in 1969 by Joel Fabricant, Dean Latimer and Peter Mikalajunas, all of whom worked at The East Village Other. The titillating and artsy paper was the most well known of the several East Village Other spinoff magazines. Early issues featured the work and contributions of underground comix legends R. Crumb and Kim Deitch, as well as Kenneth Anger and Warhol Superstars such as Ondine as well as Warhol himself, the result sometimes being a bizarre adult version of Interview Magazine. The paper was padded out with out of the ordinary rock and movie reviews, sexual imagery, erotic fiction and sexually charged columns. The paper ran for one year.
