Just because his dads a celebrity....
Hes flat out copying.... did you guys see his response to the outrage?http://comicsworthreading.com/2010/03/0 ... nsibility/
He did not apologize for his actions. What it sounds like he is saying is that manga doesn't have enough variety for him to draw differently LOL. Hes indirectly bashing the manga industry. He should stick with what he can do, not what he cant. If he can make a storyline, then do that, but don't make a storyline and then copy images to slap the storyline on to call it a new comic. Thats just low and disrespectful.
He didn't just copy from bleach btw, he also copied from hellsing, and even artwork from deviant-art, one of which is an EXACT copy in the original link.
“Certain fundamental imagery” appears to be code for “I couldn’t find a different way to show a guy screaming / girl crying / etc. so I just copied them.”
^ quoted from the link, so true.
