On Friday, the Nanterre prosecutor's office announced that an investigation for the dissemination of child pornography was opened this week against the author of comics Bastien Vivès and two publishing houses that published some of his works.

This preliminary investigation, entrusted to the Brigade for the protection of minors, targets the 38-year-old author, a figure in the 9th art, as well as the publishing houses Glénat and Les Requins Marteaux which published three of his works in 2011 and 2018. The investigation was opened after the filing of a complaint at the end of December by the Foundation for Children association with the Nanterre prosecutor's office.
