Comics writer Mark Sable was detained by security at Los Angeles International Airport

    Comics writer Mark Sable was detained by security at Los Angeles International Airport because he was carrying a script for a new issue of his comic miniseries, Unthinkable. Unthinkable follows members of a government think tank that was tasked with coming up with 9/11-type "unthinkable" terrorist scenarios that now are coming true. Sable wrote about his experience saying, "...I was flagged at the gate for 'extra screening.' I was subjected to not one, but two invasive searches of my person and belongings. TSA agents then 'discovered' the script for Unthinkable #3. They sat and read the script while I stood there, without any personal items, identification or ticket, which had all been confiscated. The minute I saw the faces of the agents, I knew I was in trouble. The first page of the Unthinkable script mentioned 9/11, terror plots, and the fact that the (fictional) world had become a police state. The TSA agents then proceeded to interrogate me, having a hard time understanding that a comic book could be about anything other than superheroes, let alone that anyone actually wrote scripts for comics. I cooperated politely and tried to explain to them the irony of the situation. While Unthinkable blurs the line between fiction and reality, the story is based on a real-life government think tank where a writer was tasked to design worst-case terror scenarios. The fictional story of Unthinkable unfolds when the writer's scenarios come true, and he becomes a suspect in the terrorist attacks." It's too bad that the TSA can't protect us from summer blockbuster movies and not just graphic novels.

A rare copy of the Tintin album Crabe aux pinces d'Or - The Crab with the Golden Claws - that was stolen from an auction house in May (see a few posts above) is returned. It was posted on Tuesday in the mailbox of the Ostend police office, as reported the city of Namur.

The thief could not be arrested, but his wife and accomplice were arrested on September 15. The two, who live in Ostend, and apparently have money problems, are also suspected of the theft of a Tintin album in Morlanwelz (Hainaut).

The album that was stolen in the auction house 'Félicien Rops' in Namur, is worth several thousands of dollars.

I think that you should be able to get your comics on the news stand because it would be better and you can buy more diffrent ones then the onces they have and if you get your comics on it if they cost about 5 credits like normaly you could get 1 or 2 credits for every copy sold so you get more credits and everyone can see your comics if they dont like to use the forum and it also brings vriety to the game.
