Worst idea ever.

Nick Simmons, son of Gene Simmons of Kiss fame, has been called out on the internet for plagiarizing hardcore. Nick has a comic out called Incarnate, where he has taken panels from manga such as Bleach, Hellsing, and lord knows what else, and slightly edited them–and colored them–to make them his “own”.  This has caused a shit storm in the anime and manga community, and for once I agree with said shit storm.

 (A very big thank you to http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=3377991&op=1&o=global&view=global&subj=10150099569020063&id=823225749#!/pages/Calling-for-legal-action-against-Nick-Simmons-for-plagiarism-of-other-works/10150099569020063 for having this image available. It’s both informative and funny.)

Bleach is a very popular (it’s sold over 50 million copies worldwide), and pretty good manga. Simmons has NOT issued a statement about his very obvious plagiarism yet, but the publisher, Radical Comics, has halted production on Incarnate. So come on, Simmons, issue a statement already! The internet is dying to know what lame ass excuse you have for yourself.
