Incarnate #1

Incarnate #1
By Nick Simmons

Nick Simmons branches out on his own in this title. Long under the shadow of his father, that member of an infamous band, his only previous comic credit is as a writer on his dad’s House of Horrors. Here he not only writes the script, but does the penciling as well.

Radical calls Incarnate an American Manga and that description is somewhat apt. From a panel design and stylistic point of view, Simmons seems to get manga as much as Adam Warren does in Empowered. However, the storytelling, the actual prose of the comic, is more straightforward like most traditional US comics.
