Radical Publishing is proud and excited to host rock legend Gene Simmons and his son Nick Simmons, star of Gene Simmons Family Jewels, at SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON INTERNATIONAL 2009 where they will be signing copies of Radical’s newest comic book title, Incarnate #1, created, written and penciled by Nick Simmons.


Premiering at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con International, Incarnate is the brainchild of Nick Simmons and stands as Radical’s watershed American Manga title. Incarnate tells the story of Revenants – immortal, indestructible, ageless creatures that have existed since time immemorial. Centuries ago, the Revenant known as Mot was worshipped as a God. Now, he walks the Earth in search of a purpose to his immortality – but when a secret society discovers a way to kill Revenants, Mot and his fellow immortals must make a choice: Hunt or be hunted.

In addition, Gene and Nick Simmons will be at the Radical Event at the Hard Rock taking place during San Diego Comic-Con International. The Radical event will feature Gene Simmons and very special guests onstage performing followed by a landmark jam session. A&E television will be filming the event for an upcoming episode of Gene Simmons Family Jewels.

“Nick’s work on Incarnate has been nothing less than incredible and we’re excited to premiere it at this year’s Comic-Con International.” said Radical President and Publisher Barry Levine. “Here at Radical, we pride ourselves on fostering creativity, talent and quality – and the Simmons family has that in spades. Both are huge comic fans and it’s our pleasure and privilege to host them this year for both the Incarnate signings and the Radical Event at the Hard Rock.”

Gene Simmons and Nick Simmons will be signing on July 23rd, July 24th and July 25th at the Radical Publishing booth. Nick Simmons will also appear at the Radical Publishing Creators Panel on FRIDAY, JULY 24TH from 12:00 P.M. to 1:00 P.M. in Room 4.

    “But Crash he doesn’t have sharp teeth like this character” You’re right. Good thing he doesn’t resemble Alucard from Hellsing

    “Yeah but what about that white patch of hair!” Jeez how could I forget. I mean it’s totally original and I can’t think of anyone who’s ever done that *cough Guts from Berserk cough*

    Dude Alot of Manga characters look like each other. Thats the nature of the style that he created his Comic book in.

    I didn’t know that Nick had any drawing skills at all. Very interesting

    I realize as much and that’s my complaint with it. There is too many American artists out there that do the manga style of drawing and it ends up looking just like everything else from Japan but worse. It’s done and overdone we don’t need anymore. I’d rather have a REAL artist draw a comic than some random celebrity who think he’s got skill.

    I’m not saying I’d buy it anyway since it’s got the Simmons name on it but I’d be much more likely if they actually had interesting art.

You know you have something to say, say it in the comment section
