Nick Simmons' Incarnate Halted Over Alleged Bleach Plagiarism

Incarnate(from animenewsnetwork.com) The American company Radical Publishing has announced that it halted the production and distribution of Nick Simmons' Incarnate comic book series on Wednesday evening, amid allegations that the comic plagiarized Tite Kubo's Bleach manga. According to Radical, "We are taking this matter seriously and making efforts now to contact the publishers of the works in question in an effort to resolve this matter." Shueisha publishes Bleach in its Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in Japan, while Viz Media publishes the manga in North America.

Nick Simmons, the son of the Kiss rock band's lead singer Gene Simmons, launched the Incarnate series last August. Posters on the GameFAQs website's forum noted the similarities between Kubo's artwork and Simmons' artwork on Sunday, and the discussion spread to the Bleach Asylum forum and the Bleachness community on the LiveJournal website.
