I’m so sick of this stigma that theatre geeks’ favorite musicals can’t be High School Musical or Les Mis or Wicked or Phantom or Hamilton or any other popular musicals. Like. There is a reason it is popular, and that’s because it’s good.

hi all!!! since this inktober i’ve found myself blissfully between one job ending and another beginning, i’m gonna have another crack at finishing a les mis comic. i’ll be doing a 1-2 page comic for each day and each prompt, then turning the whole thing into a little zine. so here’s a pile of amis to serve as cover art. see y'all october first!!

I love how 155 years after Les Mis was published the impact is so great that we are still gaining souls to The Cause™
Like I’ll be scrolling through tags or whatever and see people’s drawings and they’ll be like “started reading les mis for the first time and decided to draw Cosette,” or “I just watched Les Mis and why did no one tell me there were GAYS this is amazing"
Somewhere out in the universe Vicky HugeHoe is cackling with glee because even a century and a half later he’s still making people Fucking Miserable™

Little Les Mis™ Things

-the beginnings of the barricade songs
-“EVEN A WHORE WHO HAS GONE TO THE BAD WON’T BE HAD BY A RAT!!!”
-Thenardier calling Cosette by the wrong name
-“Little he knows, little he sees”
-the three part counterpoint at the end of a heart full of love
-the three part counterpoint at the end of a heart full of love reprise/everyday
-“Thinks he’s quite a lover, but there’s not much there”
-when the “JAVERT!"s match up in the confrontation
-the feeling in your chest when everyone starts singing in the finale

bonus:
-gavroche singing the women’s part of drink with me in the les mis movie
