Red Furred Humanoid # 3 (illustrated by Anna Hybsier)

There are small mindless insect like creatures that sometimes swarm, creating beautiful art. There are also red furred humanoids.

These red furred humanoids believe that their planet is alone in the universe.

This is one of the red furred humanoids. He appears in Sandman: Overture # 1, on page 1 in panel 2.

Raven # 28 (illustrated by Hayden Sengua)

In The Kindly Ones storyline ravens gathered in The Dreaming prior to The Kindly Ones enter the realm.

It is not known where they came from or how they were called to The Dreaming, but they came.

They are described as larger than eagles and older than Gods. They waited in the shadows for the dead to start filling the fields.

This Raven appears in Sandman # 64 on page 13, panel 5.

Movie Premier Guest # 22 (illustrated by John Rapone)

Foxglove attends the A Day In The Park movie premier. She has a song on the soundtrack and is a guest at the premiere.

This man is one of the guests at the movie premiere. He is sitting near the back of the panel. He’s looking down slightly, which makes me wonder if he is a fill reviewer or perhaps he just isn’t paying attention to the movie.

He appears in Death: The Time Of Your Life # 2, on page 2 in panel 2.

Bird # 10 (illustrated by Max Rugers)

When Nada falls in love with a mysterious stranger standing below her window one night she does everything she can to discover his identity. When all of her conventional attempts fail, she enlists in the help of The King Of Birds to discover who this man is.

This is one of the birds searching for the stranger.

This bird appears in Sandman # 9 on page 8 in panel 4.

I am not familiar with bird species, particularly African birds and so I am unsure what type of bird appears in the published comic.

Lushing Lou (illustrated by Lars Brown)

In The Doll’s House, we are introduced to Hob Gadling, who throughout the centuries, becomes one of Dream’s only friends.

Dream and Hob began their centennial meeting, sometime between 1362-1370, I believe.

Around 1888-1889, Dream once again met Hob in a small pub in London.

As Dream approaches the door to the pub he is propositioned by a woman. She offers him a “quick bum-dance” and says she would let him give her a hard ride with his “cream-stick.” Dream declines and the woman insults him, calling him a “pasty-faced pussy-cove” and a “skinny chickaleary.”

When Dream sits down with Hob he remarks that the woman, Lushing Lou, is called “The Hospital” because she spends a lot of her time in hospitals and because she’s sent a lot of men to the hospitals because she has The Pox, which is otherwise known as Syphilis.

Lushing Lou appears in Sandman # 13, on page 21.
