Here's Nelson Mandela's story, told through political cartoons


South African cartoonist John Curtis is honoring Nelson Mandela by collecting political cartoons that tell his story.

French publisher Arash Derambarsh was just a boy when he first watched cartoonist Jean "Cabu" Cabut on a popular French kids show. As an adult, he went on to publish Cabu's work and that of many of the cartoonists from Charlie Hebdo, including editor-in-chief Stéphane "Charb" Charbonnier.
