The French cartoonists killed at Charlie Hebdo: Wolinski, Charb, Tignous, and Cabu. • ©[]

The largest European gathering of comics professionals and fans, the Festival International de la Bande Dessinée, has taken place at the end of January in the small southwestern French town of Angoulême for 42 years. In contrast to American comic book conventions like Comic Con International in San Diego, which are dominated by celebrity appearances and announcements of forthcoming Hollywood blockbusters, Angoulême still places its emphasis on the cartoonists who come to meet their public. The annual Sunday highlight is the announcement of the new Grand Prix de la ville d’Angoulême, the honorary president of the next Festival, whose career is fêted the following year with a major retrospective. This is the highest recognition that can be afforded a cartoonist in France. Wednesday morning, the 2005 winner of this prize, Georges Wolinski, was one of four cartoonists killed in a terrorist attack in Paris that claimed at least 12 lives.
