Cartoonists Respond to Charlie Hebdo Tragedy

Category: Announcements

On Tuesdays, we typically post a Top Ten list of comics based on a certain topic or theme.  This week, we will depart from our usual list-sharing to pay tribute to the victims of the Charlie Hebdo attack and those affected by the shocking series of horrific events that rapidly unfolded in Paris, France last week. Below is a collection of cartoons drawn by King Features cartoonists in response to the attack of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo on January 7, 2015.
