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

I wonder if that will effect the value of the original version now.
Might be worth a few shekels, yes.

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.

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

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.

The dopey thing about it is that X-Men is a book about the evils of exclusion. Mutants have been portrayed as stand-ins for the Jews under the Nazis since Chris Clarmont was writing the book in the late '70's. Aids victims during the Legacy virus during the '80's. And now as an amalgam of the Gay community and Muslims.  Always the X-Men have fought against the bigots of their world.  Now some schmuck try's to use them to spread a message of hate.

Good observation(s).
I've pretty much said my piece here, but am interested in everyone else's take.
The X Men have represented a lot of things over the years, sothis happening in their book is...not sure if ironic's the right word.

In his social-media exchange, Syaf confirmed the numbers in “X-Men Gold” #1 refer to the December protests and to Purnama’s alleged blasphemy. “I told all Marvel the truth [sic] meaning of the number,” he wrote, “let’s see how Marvel will act."
Might be just me projecting, but that seems a shit attitude.
Its like 'yeah i did it, what're you going to do, punish me?'
By saying Marvel will 'act' he seems to be putting the negativity of the situation on them. Marvel isnt acting, its REacting, to something HE did.
He doesnt seem at all apologetic.

Looks like he realized it too, what a baby. Wonder if this fool has a family to support, if they do I feel bad they have to deal wit this fool. Unless of course, they support what he did then they can all enjoy unemployment together.

I'll never understand why people do stuff like this...say/write something they KNOW a good majority of people will find offensive and then post it publicly. Like the cases where people have said completely racist/sexist things on their Facebook and wind up fired. How did they honestly think their employer would respond?

"When Jew are offended, there is no mercy" - same artist, interview where he was fired.

He's not only burning bridges, he's carpet bombing them.

Couldnt have happened to a nicer guy.

Still, as alluded to in the link, he's fucking certain other comics creators with his actions.
Not that he cares i'm sure.

Also, the last bit:

Maybe now that he’s no longer going to be working for Marvel or DC, Ardian can start his own line of FPI comics.
Goes to what i said above.
Good luck to his retarded ass.
