Yeah, who didn’t see this coming? Mark Millar Faux Controversy Machine! Go!:
Like all my pals, the TV and movie people have come calling and even the computer game people (which is weird because games are for pedos and I have no interest).
Now, lets look at how computer game people are reacting:
Wait, a guy who writes comic books for a living is saying that games are for pedophiles? I think tipster Neal put it best: What a jackass, especially coming from someone who works in an industry that is often geared toward a young market. What is this, Comic Industry Stupidity Day?
I’ve always harbored a mild disgust for Mark Millar, because the guy always comes off as a very shameless self-promoting “rock star” writer who doesn’t think before he talks. But hey, now he’s saying we’e all pedophiles. Yeah, it’s probably just one of his wacky jokes (which always tend to come off more as smarmy, condescending “I’m better than you” remarks), but it sure is insulting to a very large audience (way larger than his little comics industry, to boot). Get over yourself, Mark Millar–you’re just a freaking comic book writer.
I’d thought that Marvel writer Mark Millar couldn’t descend further into self-parody… Y’know what? I’m calling this one on Bad Waiter Syndrome. I got nothing.
Luckily, Mark’s feeling penitant:
That’s hilarious. A clear indication that gamers are twitchy and guilty if they can’t take a joke. I love it. These guys should spend less time whacking off to Miss Lara Croft and more time reading Spider-Man
Remember, kids – He only does it to see how you’ll loudly you’ll scream.
