Admins please respond to this. The artwork was being sold for money and had the signature of the original artist erased. This happened on Saturday, in Hall D Cobo Center.

Are you still at con? if so I would recommend showing the artwork you purchase to a staff member onsite. There are artist alley and dealer room staff in the dealer room. Also there are convention operation/security rooms in both Cobo and Ren Cen.

I will past this information along but if you still on site and able to talk to a staffer member that it would be very helpful.

Thank you for bring this to our attention

I am no longer at the con, but I can tell you which vendor it was and which prints were stolen, and which print I bought as proof. I also messages the original artist that this happened.
