La Mèche (as in “the fuse” in a bomb)is a new satirical weekly, which just launched in France on September 10. It is put out by an editorial team made out of former Siné Hebdo editors and cartoonists.
Olivier Marbot is the co-founder and editor-in-chief of this new illustrated weekly. «La Mèche will surely look similar to Charlie Hebdo or Siné Hebdo, especially for their readers” as Olivier Marbot told French news agency AFP recently. Writers, journalists and cartoonists worked for free on the premier issue, which has a print run of 90 000. The cover price is set at €2,30 per issue. Click to visite La Mèche’s Facebook page.
