Comic Books

Simmons began his involvement with comic books by contributing a story to the comic book anthology “Gene Simmons House of Horrors.” He went on to create his own comic book series, “Incarnate,” which came out in the summer of 2009. Published by Radical Comics, “Incarnate” focuses on a species of near-immortal creatures called Revenants, and follows one particular Revenant named Mot who yearns to die on the battlefield fighting for his kind.

There were three issues of “Incarnate” published in total before production was paused due to accusations of plagiarism. Specifically, Simmons was accused of plagiarizing character designs, dialogue, and pieces of plot from both professional and amateur comics artists.
