The Cartooning New Year

Cartooning has a New Year mark of its very own: The anniversary of the five murdered cartoonists at Charlie Hebdo.

This date marks a new year ahead of us in which cartoonists will be threatened and threatened on their lives.

Yet, cartoonists are daring to light, where there is darkness. Daring to speak, where there is silence. Riber Hansson has drawn a speech, a sermon into one cartoon on their remembrance and resilience. Their spiral as straight as their pens:

And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. 

Riber Hansson, 2017.
