French cartoonist turns down civilian honour

From WENN.com

Tardi, who created the Adele Blanc-Sec series, was named among the recipients for France's highest civilian honour on 1 January (13).

Turning the award down, he states, ""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.""
