O'Brien trial: CBC has the best sketch artist

The Larry O'Brien trial is keeping Ottawa court sketch artists busy. With cameras banned from the courtroom, we've seen at least three different sketch artists providing images from the trial for various media outlets in the city.

CBC's artist Fran├žois Leclerc has the best sketches so far. They make the participants look like comic book characters, in particular Larry O'Brien, who bears a striking resemblance to Lex Luthor. Here's a screen capture, with a caption we added at the bottom just for fun. (The original is here.)It would be cool if the CBC published an online graphic novel using Leclerc's images. (Or maybe somebody with a lot of time on their hands could do some kind of courtroom sketch / twitter quote mash-up?)
