Comic Creators React to Charlie Hebdo Attack
The comics community is still in shock after the attacks on the French satire magazine Charlie Hebdo resulting in the deaths, the murder, of at least one editor and four cartoonists, twelve total individuals (including two police officers), as well as the injury to many more.
Tom Spurgeon summed it up best:
This is awful beyond words, and monstrous beyond imagining.
Below you’ll see the reaction by many in the comics community to the horrific news. The short version, this is an attack on free speech and expression, violence is never a proper response to satire and free speech, and our thoughts to the friends and families of those lost and affected.
