– sexcrazydwarf on Imgur compiled an album entitled “Arab newspapers around the world react to Charlie Hebdo attack.”

– Ever faithful to the quantified list format in the face of everything and anything, BuzzFeed presents “23 Heartbreaking Cartoons From Artists Responding To The Charlie Hebdo Shooting.”

– The ‎Institute for Comics Studies Facebook page shared an interview, “Comics Legend Art Spiegelman & Scholar Tariq Ramadan on Charlie Hebdo & the Power Dynamic of Satire,” from Democracy Now.

– The Daily Mail ran “The pen IS mightier than the sword: Cartoonists across the world deliver a defiant riposte to Charlie Hebdo gunmen.”

– Anne-Laure Amilhat-Szary pointed the Critical Geography Forum list serv to Elisabeth Vallet’s social media profile, and she has several relevant items up on her Twitter feed.
