They cannot die. They feel no pain. They hunger for human flesh. They are Revenants. Centuries ago, the Revenant known as Mot was worshipped as a God. Now, he walks the Earth in search for a purpose to his immortality â€“ but when a secret society discovers a way to kill Revenants, Mot and his fellow immortals must make a choice: Hunt or be hunted.
Radical Publishing is proud to announce its newest title for August 2009: INCARNATE, created, written and penciled by Nick Simmons, son of rock legend Gene Simmons and star of A&Eâ€™s Gene Simmons Family Jewels. The three-issue miniseries will feature a brand new 52-page format and $4.99 price point that will be used in future Radical titles such as FVZA: Federal Vampire and Zombie Agency from David Hine (Civil War: X-Men, Spider-Man Noir) and The Last Days of American Crime from Rick Remender (Punisher, Fear Agent).
The story concerns Mot, a peculiar member of a race of predatory creatures called Revenants. They are immortal, ageless, shape-shifting and vicious. There has never been a force on this earth that has been able to give them the death that Mot (secretly) seeks, until now. A shadow organization known only as Sanctum has discovered a way to kill the Revenants, and is carrying out a secret genocide that spans the globe. Mot, his protÃ©gÃ© Connor, and the rest of the Revenants now must decide how to ensure their place at the top of the food chain. Nick Simmonsâ€™ breakout American Manga title reveals a world that challenges even the imagination, planting its tongue firmly in cheek, then biting it off…And swallowing it.
â€œIncarnate is a project that is very close to me,â€ stated Radical Publishing President and Publisher Barry Levine. â€œAs a rock photographer, I have worked very closely with Gene Simmons and the members of KISS. Since Iâ€™ve known him, Gene has always had a passion for comics and has passed that down to his son Nick. After seeing Nickâ€™s concept for Incarnate and the quality of his designs and panels, I immediately felt that this was a great fit for Radical.â€
Just before its August release date, Incarnate #1 will debut at this yearâ€™s San Diego Comic-Con International with Nick Simmons on hand to sign copies. For more info on Radical at this yearâ€™s San Diego Comic-Con, stay tuned to www.radicalcomics.com for all the latest news.
