Well, it’s a new year and here at ICECUBES we have made a subtle change. You might have noticed that there are no more ads on the website. Hurray! That is my gift to you for 2015. While it makes ICECUBES load faster, it also means that it’s not generating any more ad revenue. So, hopefully those of you who still don’t have the book will buy one, especially since I have reduced the price to only $10!
So, Happy 2015 from ICECUBES and thanks for reading!
I was going to publish a new ICECUBES comic strip today, but the events in Paris have deeply saddened me. I used to live in Paris (in fact I was born there) and I read Charlie Hebdo through the 70s and 80s. I thought the drawings were sloppy and the jokes sometimes lame, but I liked the format and the rollicking no-holds-barred attitude and freedom they enjoyed. I knew Cabu and Wolinski’s work well and I still have old issues of the mag. They were the equivalent of the underground American cartoonists of the 60s and 70s. They lampooned everyone – the church, the pope, the president, actors, celebrities – sort of like an X-rated version of Mad magazine. When cartoonists are gunned down in their editorial meeting just for drawing silly cartoons it should tell us that we are in a cultural war. #JeSuisCharlie #IAmCharlie
