• Cartoons Under Threat

    Cartoons Under Threat

    On our blog, a recap of last week's events. If there is to come any good out of the attack on Charlie Hebdo, it should be a reaffirmation of the importance of social satire. Political cartoons are in the spotlight this week, but we must work to keep them on the agenda. And terrorist attacks are not the only threat to political cartooning.

    #JeSuisCharlie

    We are shocked and appalled by the futile attack on the headquarters of French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo. Our thoughts are with the 12 people who died, those who survived, and their families. As cartoonists, we stand united in our belief that violence cannot be an answer to satire, nor will it ever succeed in ending satire.

    For Justice Hub, we were asked to create an infographic that would explain how judges for the International Criminal Court are appointed. We came up with an infocomic, a crossover between a comic and an infographic, made by Nicaraguan comic artist Pedro X. Molina, which tells the story of the elections in a lighthearted but informative way. Part 1 is online and Part 2 will be published this week.
