Last week’s attacks on the Paris offices of satirical publication Charlie Hebdo by militant terrorists left twelve dead including five cartoonists, and left the world’s cartooning community shocked, saddened, and angry. The NCS asked its members to share their thoughts, concerns, support, and feelings on this terrible event and its implications on our industry in the best way they know how… with cartoons. The following gallery of cartoons were submitted by NCS members and other professional cartoonists in a demonstration of solidarity with our fellow cartoonists the world over, in support and sympathy with the families of the victims, and in support of free speech everywhere (special thanks to Cagle Cartoons and Creators Syndicate for their help in compiling some of these works).

NCS membership is open to all creative professionals who earn a substantial part of their income working in the fields of cartooning, illustration, animation and graphic storytelling. We are an organization of esteemed peers and we welcome new members!
