Comics on the front page

It's been many years now that Libération celebrates the beginning of the Angoulême comics festival — probably the world's most important — by being entirely illustrated by comics authors.

January 30 issue makes no exception. And the front page of this unique "all of Libé in comics" edition is illustrated by this year's festival's president, Dutch cartoonist Willem.

A sad coincidence: the same day, French (and Italian born) writer and cartoonist Cavanna died at the age of 90. He was, among others, one of the "pillars" of satiric weekly Charlie Hebdo.
