This one really does sort of take the cake in terms of "What?" And I make no apology for sharing it on scans_daily, as I know many of us have enjoyed the work of the artist in question, and commissions in general.

Gisele Lagace (artist on Archie, Jem and the Holograms and others) posted this on her Facebook page yesterday

Welp, no C2E2 for me. Was refused entry at the border. They kept pressing about the comics I had and the sketches, and well, I had to be honest and said that I did get paid for commissions but before hand, but since they weren’t complete, it was considered work in the us. Comics wise, I had maybe $700 in value if I had sold everything. Honestly, it’s not a lot.

Was asked if I was the only one doing this as I looked surprised to be refused entry. I said no, many artists from around the world attend these to promote themselves. I don’t think they cared.

My car was searched and is a mess. And to top it off, I was body searched and finger printed too (they do that when you get refused entry apparently.) It was an awful experience.

Things then went worse when they searched me throughout and found 2 white pills in my wallet. There was no identification on them and I wasn’t sure what they were. Once I calmed down after being touched all over, I remembered they were generic acetaminophen from the dollar store that I carry around in case Marc gets a headache as it sometimes happen. I forgot they were even in there.

Anyway, I wasn’t turned around for the 2 acetaminophen, as they found those after I was refused entry for the comics in my car and the unfinished sketches but they kept us longer there until they were convinced they weren’t narcotics. I never took drugs in my life!

And to think we drove close to 2 days to get there. For nothing. (No, I didn’t get anything from that body search. Maybe Zii would think it’s a good deal.) Anyway… Driving back home.

Now that I’ve been refused entry in the US for this, it’s on file. Don’t expect to see me at a US con until I can figure out a way to get in and being absolutely certain this won’t happen.

This is deeply shameful treatment involving deliberate humiliation. I believe it's technically current laws being enforced, but they have not been to this extent at any time in the past.

If she'd completed the art would they have been able to stop her?

Update on this post in which Marvel made the harebrained decision to remove the digital copies from the comics and instead replace them with codes for old comics the purchaser didn't care about.

Marvel will be going back to restoring them:

“We heard the message loud and clear on Digital same issue codes,” Marvel SVP of Sales and Marketing David Gabriel said in a press release. “We heard how folks across the world were using them, relying on them, loving them. We are always looking to do what’s best for fans and the comics industry so we’re pleased to make this program even better. Now, print comics readers will receive a code for the issue they purchased, and also an additional bonus comic giving customers even more value for their purchase."

Wonder how bad the backlash was for them to reverse it this quickly.

Marvel has been teasing this Generations event a while now, complete with a gorgeous Alex Ross image. However, we were given very little information about what exactly it was beyond a celebration of the legacy among various Marvel superheroes. That has now changed.

I'm cautiously optimistic. Crystal Dynamics' Tomb Raider was awesome, so they clearly know how to make good games.

Hoo boy, this is a shitty decision. Marvel's "digital copy" deal was the best of both worlds. Might end up dropping a lot of my Marvel output because of this.

So this is kind of comic book news since it involves the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, though it's strangely not as well given what they are defending is not comic book related. However, they did through in their support for this memo, so let's give it a look and discuss!

So I know that people around here have been... distracted by the election and everything surrounding it, but there's a recent event that I thought people around here would be interested in discussing.
