AFTER THREE armed men stormed in the offices of Charlie Hebdo yesterday and killed 10 members of the editorial team, including 4 of France’s most popular cartoon artists, political cartoonists around the world started responding to the tragedy with their own weapon: art.

The result is an incredible show of support for the weekly satirical newspaper and for what it has always stood for despite threats and fear: freedom of the press and freedom of speech.
