Some say the Charlie Hebdo attack changed the political cartoon world forever and that the threat to cartoonists has never been so strong. However, should this perceived threat prevent cartoonists from still covering sensitive issues? Should all journalistic cartoonists feel threatened?

One cartoon journalist set out to show that cartoonists should not limit themselves. Jules Callis, who comes from the Netherlands, had clear doubts about his decision to travel to Lebanon to document the Syrian refugee crisis just days after the attack. However, Callis was not about to shy away from a subject and determinedly made the decision to travel to the Syrian border to tell the real story of Syria's refugees through comic journalism.
