TSA: United made false announcement about comic book luggage ban
Don’t worry Comic-Con fans, you don’t have to remove your comic books from your checked luggage, despite what a Sunday photo circulated on Twitter suggests.
The dust-up began after a person named Adi Chappo tweeted the above, tagging United Airlines, which responded on Twitter:
The restriction on checking comic books applies to all airlines operating out of San Diego this weekend and is set by the TSA. ^MD

But by Monday, the Transportation Security Administration was saying that no such restriction existed.
