Nick Simmons, occasional reality TV star and son of some bassist from a little known band, managed to unite the world of anime & comic fandom like no one else has in the last few years. Did he create the next Cowboy Bebop? No, but he might as well have lifted some of it since just about everything else popular from Japan in the last ten plus years has become a part of his homage in the series Incarnate — along with some Deviantartists and possibly others. While Simmons has released a response to the controversy, I wouldn’t expect this growing snowball of trouble to stop any time soon.
