French Citizen # 25 (illustrated by Lars Brown)

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 Lars. I love the sheer outrage on the face of this character. It’s easy to picture him amongst the crowds at the national convention during this speech and realizing that their leaders were perhaps not ideal for the country.

Here is French Citizen # 25…
