Nick Simmons at Golden Apple Comics

If I were the proprietor of Golden Apple Comics in Los Angeles I'd be pretty stoked. Why? Because a lot of the talent in the comic book industry have been making stops there for signings. While Nick Simmons might not quite be on the same level as the likes of say Jim Lee or Brian Michael Bendis, he does have a comic book coming out. And it does look intriguing. If you share that level of intrigue then you know where this is going. On August 22 (from 1-3 PM), junior Simmons will be at the store to do an autograph signing for his new release from Radical Publishing called Incarnate. Omnicomic previewed the book last week, but if you missed it and don't feel like back-clicking, here's the story. The book starts the tale of Mot, a boy who can't die. He is what some would affectionately call a Revenant; that is, an ageless creature that has existed since time "immemorial." The whole immortal thing works out well if you're a fan of life, but you have to imagine that after so many centuries of not dying you'd might get bored and want to die. Unfortunately, nothing can kill Revenants...until now. An organization known as the sanctum has figured how to kill them and are hunting Revenants, meaning it's up to Mot and his protege Connor to figure out how to stop them. So make your way to Golden Apple Comics at 7018 Melrose Avenue in Hollywood if you're in the area on August 22. If you need more information, call 323-658-6047.

From Nick Simmons, son of rock legend Gene Simmons and star of A&E’s GENE SIMMONS FAMILY JEWELS, comes a revolutionary new take on the undead. They cannot die. They feel no pain. They hunger for human flesh. They are Revenants. 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. Nick Simmons’ breakout American Manga title reveals a world that challenges even the imagination, planting its tongue firmly in cheek, then biting it off... and swallowing it.
