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™

We all know that Enjolras was on the barricade to fight for Liberty

And we know Combeferre was on the barricade to fight for Equality

And we know Courfeyrac was on the barricade to fight for Brotherhood


But Bahorel was on the barricade to fight for the right to exist beyond ‘class’

But Feuilly was on the barricade to fight for children without anything else

But Joly was on the barricade to fight for those choosing between medicine and food

But Jehan was on the barricade to fight for the right to live fully

But Bosset was on the barricade to fight for freedom of the future

And Grantaire was on the barricade to fight for his friends, the goodness in life

les mis moments that break my heart: 1/?

combeferre, bahorel & the rest of les amis trying to stop courfeyrac going after gavroche

“Why does the les mis fandom obsess over les amis when they have no content and aren’t even the main characters???”

i mean idk about you but i can relate much more to young people suffering at the hands of society than i can about an old dude who yanked a child from the woods and carries wigs in his pockets

Picture Enjolras trying to describe the guy he likes to ferre and courf but they make it really difficult like “are you sure you’re not just making this up he can’t have that many hobbies” and “curly dark hair and makes fun of you a lot? He sounds like a taller version of courfeyrac"

Courfeyrac: liberté. égalité. beyoncé.
Combeferre: Harry Potter erotica
Grantaire: some douche with an acoustic guitar

Joly: embryonic stem cells
Bossuet: the World’s Worst Human Being
Bahorel: the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Marius: the “shy kid in the corner”
Eponine: the feminist agenda
Cosette: Girls Gone Wild
Musichetta: aggressive Legolas hair flips
Montparnasse: smoking 1000 cigarettes just so you can sound like a dalek when you talk
