In a time when people tend to take issue with how many comic book companies handle controversy, our hats are off to the quick and decisive manner in which Radical Publishing has handled the controversy around Nick Simmons’ Incarnate (and the recent claims of plagiarism on his part).
From that above Robot 6 link, Radical responded to the controversy with:
We at Radical Publishing Inc. and Radical Comics Inc. are quite concerned to hear the news surrounding Nick Simmons’s Incarnate comic book. We are taking this matter seriously and making efforts now to contact the publishers of the works in question in an effort to resolve this matter. We have halted further production and distribution of the Incarnate comic book and trade paperback until the matter is resolved to the satisfaction of all parties. Rest assured that Radical is taking swift action regarding this matter and will continue in its efforts to maintain the integrity and protect the intellectual property of artists throughout the world whose creative works are the bedrock of our company and the comic book industry.
Well done, Radical.
I hope folks out there help them out on the lost revenue from no longer putting out Incarnate (which I believe was their biggest seller) by trying out one of their many other titles, including Rick Remender’s excellent The Last Days of American Crime.
