Random information on the term “Smack”:

Slapping or smacking refers to striking a person with the open palm of the hand.

The word was first recorded in 1632, probably as a form of Onomatopoeia. It shares its beginning consonants with several other English words related to violence, such as “slash”, “slay”, and “slam”. The word is found in several English colloquialisms, such as, “slap fight”, “slap-happy”, “slapshot”, “slapstick”, “slap on the wrist” (as a mild punishment), “slap in the face” (as an insult or, alternatively, as a reproof against a lewd or insulting comment), and “slap on the back” (an expression of friendship or congratulations).

In jazz and other styles of music, the term refers to the action of pulling an instrument’s strings back and allowing them to smack the instrument: see Slapping (music).

“Bitch slap” is African-American slang that dates back to the 1990s. It is used to mean killing a woman, or to refer to a woman hitting a man, or a woman or gay man haranguing somebody, or a man hitting someone else in an effeminate way. Bitch slap has also been used in American prisons since the 1990s to refer to slapping instead of punching, with the implication that the perpetrator isn’t “man enough” to deliver a closed-fist punch.

Random information on the term “KISS”:

Comic books have been an integral and popular part of the American rock group Kiss’ merchandising since 1977, beginning with their appearance in Marvel Comics’ Howard the Duck #12. Over their career of nearly four decades, Kiss has licensed their name to “more than 3,000 product(s) . . . to become nearly a one-billion-dollar brand.”

Licensed Kiss stories and adventures have been published by Marvel Comics, Image Comics, Dark Horse Comics, Platinum Studios, Archie Comics, and IDW Publishing; unlicensed stories have been published by Revolutionary Comics, among others. Ironically, according to frontman Gene Simmons, all the band members except himself “hate comic books.”

KISS’s first comic book appearance was in issue #12 of Marvel’s Howard the Duck in May 1977, titled “Mind Mush!”. The group also appeared in issue #13 of the series, titled “Rock, Roll Over and Writhe!”.

In 1977 Marvel Comics published a magazine-format full-color comic book, titled A Marvel Comics Super Special!: Kiss presenting the band KISS as superheroes. It was the first in the Marvel Comics Super Special series which featured other musicians such as The Beatles. 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. Marvel also published a second KISS comic magazine, issue #5 in the Super Special series, in 1978, with much less fanfare.
