    Nick Simmons accused of plagiarizing manga.

    Nick Simmons, the author of the comic book series Incarnate is being accused of plagiarizing multiple popular manga series and even some Deviantart works.
    Hellsing and Bleach seem to be the biggest sources of 'inspiration'.

    Publisher Radical has halted Simmons' series for the time being.

    In the asian culture many people think that it is flatering to include things from a persons favorite books and movies Hidaki Anno always made it a point to reference his heroes and history along with spiritual text. I am not sure if he crossed the line though.

    There's a very large black and white line between 'including' and flat out copying.



    These are just too similar to be ignored.

    This guy's going to get his ass sued off and he'll never be published in comics again. His reputation is tarnished beyond repair.

    Wow. This tops off a weird end of the night for me. Gene Simmons' son ripped off Hellsing, Bleach, And Vampire Hunter D! What are the odds of that happening?

    Yeah, this looks to be a career killer for sure! Poor, dumb rock star progeny.........

    Tsk, tsk...

    That's not cool. Being an aspiring manga artist myself, it's a pain in my side to see someone blatantly rip off the work of others. I've had that done to me in the past where supposed "friends" would take bits and pieces of my work and claim it as their own. They'd even go as far as scratching out my signature and writing in their own. That's not gravy.

    It's people like that who keep me from posting most of my work online.

    That's pretty sad. Art theft is getting too common nowadays, IMO. I can't believe anyone would have the gall to plagiarize mangas like Bleach and Hellsing, which are pretty big titles.

    That's just sad. If you can't be creative enough to come up with your OWN characters, then you shouldn't get into making manga.

    I'm totally in love. Sadis + yinyangAio1 forever. <3 (Yes, we're together irl. We're engaged.) Also, if you liked/dated him, please stay off my page.

    Well there's a difference between being 'inspired by' and downright theft as ace already made clear. That is why Simmons is plagiarizing and Nobuhiro Watsuki is a true mangaka.
