Not "the founder", that's yet another lie about Charlie Hebdo related issues, he was just an early participant in the publishing team, which he lead for some years too (Harakiri, Charlie mensuel). He has an old disagreement with the rest of the team, especially the one who founded Charlie Hebdo after the end of Harakiri. Disagreement started in 1974.

I don't see how one can call Roussel a founder of Charlie Hebdo as he has never owned any part of the capital. He just worked for the newspaper, that's all. He was part of the driving force of Charlie mensuel, but that was a totally different kind of publication about comics nowhere near the style of Charlie Hebdo.

His critics against Choron at the time and afterwards against Charb are due to old political issues. Roussel ended up working for le Nouvel Obs, that says it all.

As always, ignorance of the culture, politics and history of the journal lead to false statements in the international press. Just stop reading anything not written by French people about Charlie Hebdo.
You're right.
Tragic circumstances revived my interest for the French culture anyway.
