The Pen is Mightier than the Sword

Posted in In the News by Solveig Hansen on 2015/01/14

Cartoonists all over the world reacted quickly to the despicable terror attack at the Charlie Hebdo offices. The slideshow below shows some of their cartoons illustrating that the Pen is indeed Mightier than the sword. Always has been, always will be.

The slideshow also includes the cover of the first Charlie Hebdo issue following the attack. It depicts the Prophet Muhammad shedding a tear and holding up a placard that reads “Je suis Charlie” and “Tout est pardonné” (All is forgiven).

Feel free to leave tips on other cartoons in the comments field.
