Sable wrote BOOM! Studios a more in-depth version of the encounter to release to the public: "Flying from Los Angeles to New York for a signing at Jim Hanley's Universe Wednesday (May 13th), 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. "In the end, I feel my privacy is a small price to pay for educating the government about the medium."

Everyone should have been able to tell that it was fake simply by the way the article was written. Seemed like some terribly written piece by a highschooler.
It's funny to see some people jump to conclusions saying things like "Yup, here we go, disclosure on the way." lol.
