It will be its first edition since a "survivors" issue featuring a cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad was released the week after three days of attacks in and around Paris last month hat left 20 people dead including three shooters.

The cover of the edition, drawn by cartoonist Luz, shows Pope Francis, a jihadi fighter, and several French politicians depicted as a pack of dogs. They are chasing another dog that has a copy of Charlie Hebdo in its mouth, accompanied by the headline: "Here we go again!" The issue is 16 pages long and features 30 contributors, according to a statement by the publication issued Monday.
