• World’s top comics festival honors ‘Charlie Hebdo’


    ANGOULÊME, France: The world’s leading comics festival was set to open in France on Thursday under a tight net of security as it dedicated this year’s event to the murdered cartoonists of Charlie Hebdo. The four-day festival in the western town of Angouleme attracted 200,000 people last year. This year’s guests — including some of the biggest names in comics and graphic novels from around the world — will find themselves under unprecedented surveillance after the attacks on satirical magazine “Charlie Hebdo” in Paris on January 7 that left 12 dead.
