  • They reek of evil, y’know.

  • Rich Handley says:

    I have no doubt that Laudet is, indeed, “the most evil criminal in all France.” He has a mustache.

    Mooney is a “kidnapper, suspected of numerous crimes.” I wonder if those crimes include kidnapping.

    I think Diames is innocent. The convicted prisoner swears, and swearing is bad.

    It sure is nice for that police officer to give them all lemonade while they audition for the prison’s production of “Annie.” Singing can really strain the throat, especially if you’re trying to project to the back of a theater.

    Mon Dieu! I do believe ze artist missed off ze string of onions and garlic around ze neck of ze devilishly ‘andsome striped-shirt and beret wearing Pierre Laudet.

    Why is there a cop handing each of these criminals a drink?

  • Jake Wyckoff says:

    Curiously, Jean Valjean is both former titleholder of “the most evil criminal in all France” as well as the convicted prisoner currently swearing his innocence.

  • Tom Mason says:

    This looks like the first act of the worst Broadway play ever.

  • Jack says:

    If they hang around there too long, the Masked Marvel is likely to show up and kill them all stone dead, then go off and do the same to their accomplices.

  • m4 says:

    Why would those guys hang out right under signs describing their criminal nature? Were they at some sort of villainous meet-n-greet?

  • Doc Arkham says:

    Yes, but the President has been kidnapped by ninjas.

    Are they bad enough dudes to rescue the President?

  • m4 says:

    This is 1949 — Harry Truman doesn’t need to be rescued!

  • Tom WB says:

    It breaks my heart to see ol’ Pierre lumped in with those mooks.

  • Sarah says:

    These men drink Kool-Aid. Try Bosco instead!

  • Pantsless Pete says:

    What I’m wondering is if the signs are actually above their heads or if they’re just captions.

  • Cowded House says:

    Prisoners of love, blue skies above, can’t keep our hearts in jail!
