Mark Sable Detained by TSA for ‘Unthinkable’ Script
Comics writer Mark Sable was detained by the TSA during a domestic flight yesterday when they discovered a script in his luggage for ‘Unthinkable,’ his Boom! Studios series about a government think tank that brainstorms potential terrorist plots, which are later carried out. Apparently they found the script in a random search, and became concerned that Sable — who imagines potential terrorist plots in the series — might be trying to carry them out.
-Wow.Just detained by TSA for over half hour.They read and questioned me about the script for Unthinkable
-Talk about life imitating art imitating life. I couldn’t make this up if I tried.
-Nothing like starting the day explaining you’re not a terrorist, but writing about them.
-I hope the TSA enjoyed the waterboarding in issue 3. At least they know comics aren’t just about superheroes.
More after the jump…
-Big Brother is here…but he’s retarded.
-I should have asked the TSA officers for a blurb. I suppose I can quote them on “WHO DO YOU WORK FOR?”. Very Kafkaesque.
-If you go back, to my old tweets, you can find that I made a comment about worrying writing this would affect my ability to travel.
-At the time, I was referring to places like China or Israel. I wasn’t thinking of the same domestic flight I take multiple times a year.
