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.

I wonder why it took us so long to notice this since its been out for 6 months already. Haha but dont you just love how he traces some of the scenes. The blatant plagiarizing is so obvious, did the guy really think he would get away with this?

I wasn't even aware this comic existed. And my words, everything about the comic is a clear rip-off

The guy didn't just copy from Bleach. I notice characters from other manga series were taken too, particular the ones I recognized are from Hellsing and One Piece. Either way, his going to have one hell of a shit storm coming his door steps

Seriously, what was he thinking? Does he honestly expect none of the American comic readers would read Japanese manga themselves and realized the plagiarized work.

I know right? I didn't even know Simmons made one >D but my friend sent me a news link about him copying Bleach and I'm just like 'WTF?'. For some reason, some parts of it look like this Italian cartoon I saw : O
