Issued on: Modified:
FRANCE 24 reporter Alex Turnbull speaks to Eve Jackson from Europe's largest cartoon and comic-strip festival in Angoulême. Around 200,000 people are expected over four days for the 42nd edition, one very unlike those held in previous years. Under tight security, tributes are being paid to the Charlie Hebdo cartoonists who died in the Paris terrorist attacks earlier this month. We also discover the world of Belgian cartoonist Hermann and a 24-hour challenge that's putting artists to the test.
