#1 A total of 17 people were killed in three days of violence that began when the gunmen opened fire at Charlie Hebdo in revenge for its past publication of satirical images of the Prophet. With demand surging for this week's edition, Charlie Hebdo planned to print up to 3 million copies, dwarfing its usual run of 60,000.

Auzzie cartoon - Within minutes, he was inundated with criticism from people all over the world who called the image 'disgustingly racist' and 'truly vile'.

Could it be the same "all over the world" protestors ?

#4 More commentary plus more Knight cartoons.

Seemed like typical cartoon exaggeration to me. Predictably brought out the humorless scolds.

Not sure how else to draw a full figured black woman athlete having a roid rage; perhaps as Bruce Jenner.

#7 Maybe he should have caricatured Rachel Dolezal in lieu of Serena. Would that be PC enough?

#8 Never afraid to take on issues of right and wrong, Nast became the scourge of Tweed and Tammany. His influence was so great primarily because of the visual nature of his work. Most of Tweed’s constituents were illiterate, so while they couldn’t read the scathing articles written about Tweed in The New York Times, they could understand Nast’s cartoons. Legend has it that Tweed was so threatened by Nast, he gave orders to “stop them damn pictures!”

#9 All about race or entitlement tantrums.
Nothing about being unable to recover from birth trauma.
