Riss' topical cartoons and comics have regularly covered French politics and Sarkozy in particular. He has made several comics based on the French president with Philippe Cohen and scriptwriter Richard Malka. Riss has also illustrated criminal trials for Charlie Hebdo and the press, which resulted in publications like 'Le Procès Papon' and 'Le Procès Touvier', and the book 'Le Tour de France du Crime'.
