Artist Mark Sable Detained By TSA in Los Angeles

Mark Sable, the artist for Boom! Studios title "Unthinkable" was detained by authorities during a recent flight.

Guards at the airport discovered the script for "Unthinkable" during a search and pulled him aside for 'extra screening'.
The story behind the mini-series is about a government think tank that plans for terrorist scenarios.

Mark says he "cooperated politely and tried to explain the irony of the situation" and that "in the end, I feel my privacy is a small price to pay for educating the government about the medium".

Info coming from the Licensing Show

The Licensing Show is being held this week in Las Vegas and various photos have begun to appear around the web. Here are a couple of comic related things that will probably be of interest.

First, a teaser image that has the release dates for various Marvel films.

I'm excited that we get a new Marvel movie every summer for the next 3 years but WTF? Captain America opening 2 weeks AFTER July 4th? If any movie needs to come out on on America's birthday this would be it, but what do I know.

Second, we have the Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World poster.

Nothing too exciting here. Actually, I'm kind of amazed they are using O'Malley's art to promote the film. (As opposed to a photo collage of the cast)
