Awesome Bedlam images

I managed to win the HeroMachine caption contest for a thrilling second time (with a The Brave & The Bold joke—yay me)! The best part of winning isn’t gloating, though. It’s the image that Gentleman Jeff Hebert draws for you as a result.

Dr. Cain Ducett, also known as Bedlam, is one of my favorite characters from Devil’s Cape, so he was a natural choice for me to request as a character illustration. And Jeff, of course, did a wonderful job.

Thanks, Jeff, for a terrific image. I’m going to have to see about getting this colored someday.

Ooo. That's definitely the stuff of nightmares. I don't picture well when I read, so I didn't have an image for Cain. Which, it turns out, was a good thing. Cool illustration.
