French Citizen # 29 (illustrated by Max Rugers)

After Maxmilien Robespierre and Louis-Antoine St. Just heard the song of Orpheus, both were faced with events that caused their status within the French Government to be compromised and ultimately lead to their death.

This French citizen was one of the men who was present when St. Just, typically a great orator, stuttered and fell silent during a speech before the national convention.

He appears in Sandman # 29, on page 23, in panel 1.

This is another great portrait from Max. In this issue, the French are not necessarily portrayed as the nicest people, mostly because we are hoping Johanna Constantine can escape Paris with Orpheus. Max did a great job bringing across the perception that this man is not a very nice guy. I like his long face and the line work on this character.

Here is French Citizen # 29…
