French Soldier # 9 (illustrated by Mike DeCarlo)

In Thermidor, we read about the final days of the French Revolution and the downfall of Maxmilien Robespierre.

After Louis St. Just faltered his speech at the National Convention, Robespierre tried to prevent things from falling apart and stepped in as an attempt to continue. As he spoke, the citizens of France laughed at him. He was at a loss for words.

Later that night Robespierre and his group were arrested.

This French Soldier is one of the soldiers present at Robespierre’s arrest.

He appears in Sandman # 29, on page 23, in panel 3.

Mike did a fantastic job with this portrait. I really like the perspective of this portrait and the colors used. The colors are vibrant and work well with my impression of how the French Soldiers would appear.
