Pokemon: Future Days by SamC-Art Pokemon: Future Days by SamC-Art
A short comic strip I made today, laughing at the idea of Pokemon getting seriously dark

Thanks for all the attention on this. For Pokemon fans avidly asking me to make more, I did this as satire and don't plan to continue. I'm definitely not enough of a fan to create a serious dark comic about it, I just like making overly-serious comics to laugh at. I'm glad people like it on whatever level though :)

If you like this, check out my weekly comic The Big D at www.thebigdcomic.com Its a crime noir story about a detective with a penis for a head, I'm sure you'll be interested!

Yes, actually. I wouldn't have the time and don't know enough about the franchise to write a script, which is a big reason for not doing it. If you'd be interested, or know someone who would be, email me at contact@samcarr.net

I actually think there was some sort of attempt to do a serious Pokemon thing, a long while back Kotaku featured it. I don't remember it getting far before I stopped reading, but it had a similar art direction and was very Noire-ish

Pokemon is a very dark world.   It's so dangerous that 10/11 year olds are given weapons of mass destruction, with an entire economy dedicated to war machines(animals?), and where virtually every notable town has a war leader whose real job is to maintain social/environmental stability(gym leaders)(with a secondary job of training future soldiers).

Often when people make pokemon dark it tends to just end up being overly edgy, this has a nice feel to it though, some believability. Good work.
