I was just reading about that. There is a bit of irony the guy snuck that in there on the same page as Kitty Pryde. I hope the guy thinks that was worth trashing his career over.

The house of oppressive ideas.
Really not so much.  Considering, it was the act of one guy and not like a Bendis directive to all staff.

It will be VERY interesting to hear Marvel's response on this, because this could cause a shitstorm.

Very irrational but as long as people worship books with passages like those in it, there will be people who will take it to heart. Like Upper_Krust, I look forward to their response.

My take is...
...Dont push your personal political/religious agenda like this; its petty.

If this guy is THAT set on getting 'a message' out, he can shop around a pro muslim character/comic, or self publish. You know, put him self out there, instead of...hijacking someone else's product.

Weird that a Russian atheist would be rocking a shirt with a Quaran verse on it.

Marvel is re-releasing with the art removed and will be disciplining the guy. Considering he's a free lance artist, I assume he will just be blacklisted.

I wonder if that will effect the value of the original version now.

Seeing as the guy loves Islam so much it would be nice to give him this kind of discipline...

At least make it for a serious crime.  This is nothing in comparison to some of the more blatant shit that people get away with.

It's a shame that his career is probably all but over given that he had talent and a cool style (Quite liked his stuff on Simone's Batgirl, for instance.)

But I cannot disagree here. There is way too much agenda preaching in comics as is, without stuff like this added to the mix.

Should have tried to get DC to give him a Muslim centered comic like that one car-thief they had going for awhile.
