Gene Simmons is really smug and arrogant because he was in KISS, 1977’s fourth most popular band. And who could blame him? They almost had a number 1 record (with 8 of their 47 records reaching the top 10!) and last year they played backup to Adam Lambert on American Idol.
His son Nick is also becoming quite famous, although for different reasons.
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.”
Nick has gone on Facebook demanding an apology, and it seems he deserves one. This live journal page has a few so-called “examples”. Nicks are in black and white for the most part. As you can see in this one, the Japanese character has a scar over his right eye, while Nicks is over the left. When laid on top of each other, the difference in the scars is even more obvious. Is this Crazy Town? Are right and left the same all of a sudden? I don’t think so. I think the only crime here is envy of Nicks talent.
