Jacques Tardi Turns Down The Legion D’Honneur

Jacques Tardi has turned down France’s highest award for civilians in the New Year’s Honours list.

He issued the statement;

Being fiercely attached to my freedom of thought and creativity, I do not want to receive anything, neither from this government or from any other political power whatsoever. I am therefore refusing this medal with the greatest determination.”

In contrast children’s illustrator and cartoonist Quentin Blake accepted the British honour of knighthood in the New Year’s honours list, becoming Sir Quentin Blake.   And last year, Grant Morrison accepted the Order of the British Empire.
