Midwood KISSed! Metal-loving vandals strike again

The KISS Army strikes again!

A KISS-loving artist scrawled a loving caricature of the hair metal band’s four members onto an E. 12th Street office building near Kings Highway in Midwood this weekend — the third such instance of KISS graffiti discovered in Brooklyn this year.

On February 1, church maintenance workers found KISS masks scribbled on a statue of the Virgin Mary in front of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Williamsburg, leading cops to declare they were “looking for a KISS fan.”

The graffiti seems to be inspired by masks worn by KISS members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley.

Less than a week later, witnesses saw the same masks left on a subway ad at the Lorimer Street L-train station.

Police do not have a suspect in the KISS incidents.
