Kurt Busiek is Mad About Pokemon

And he's not going to take it anymore.

Followers of Kurt Busiek (Astro City, Maximum Security) were treated to a delightfully absurd rant today when the comics scribe found about this newfangled "Pokemon" and took issue with the mobile game as disrespectful and dangerous. Busiek took to Twitter to express his beef with the hit game:

It's probably not so much the personal responsibility of a fourth grader to not play Pokemon in the middle of a busy highway as much as it is the responsibility of the parents. But still, we kinda understand where he's coming from, we...




The Korean DMZ?!?! Well, that didn't go as planned, but alright. We're on board now: Pokemon is a MENACE! Where's Peter Parker?! Bring us pictures of Pokemon!





You win this time, Kurt Busiek. But we'll get you one of these days.
