People attend the exhibition "Une histoire de Charlie hebdo" ("A History of Charlie Hebdo") in tribute to the dead French cartoonists at Le Musee de la Bande Dessinee in Angouleme, eastern France, on January 28, 2015Angoulême (France) (AFP) - One of the world's leading comics festivals opened in France on Thursday under tight security as it dedicated this year's event to the murdered cartoonists of Charlie Hebdo. The festival in the southwestern town of Angouleme also created a first when it gave its coveted Grand Prix lifetime achievement award to a manga artist, with Japan's Katsuhiro Otomo scooping the prize. This year's guests -- including some of the biggest names in comics and graphic novels from around the world -- found themselves under unprecedented protection after the attacks on satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris on January 7 that left 12 dead. "The 2015 festival will be a time for remembering but we also want to show that life goes on," festival director Franck Bondoux said.

The NFL may not like those "Beast Mode" caps Lynch has been wearing during his Super Bowl press appearances, but the fans apparently do. As the league reportedly considers fining Lynch for promoting an unauthorized brand, the New Era Cap Co. is busy making more of the caps after they sold out on Lynch's website. (AP Photo/Matt York, File)BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Hats off to Marshawn Lynch.
