Following the news this morning that 12 are dead in Paris after terrorists attacked the offices of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, Detroit cartoonist Doug Dearth posted this tribute on his Facebook page. A contributor to satirical magazines Fun and Orbit, Dearth drew their' mascots Winky and Orby wearing berets and bowing their heads in mourning, with the accompanying caption "We are all French satirical magazines today."

Thanks to Robert St. Mary, who has been working on an Orbit anthology, for the tip.
