Baseball Player (illustrated by Max Rugers)

After the death of Kathy, Prez Rickard spent more time in the white house and was seen less by the American people. He became despondent and did not have the same zest for his job as he once did.

After retiring for the night Prez turned on the television and was watching baseball. Boss Smiley appeared in his television, once again offering Prez anything he wanted, even his deceased wife, if he would only serve him.

This Baseball Player was on the television prior to Boss Smiley hijacking the program.

He appears in Sandman # 54, on page 14 in panel 7.

This is a great portrait from Max. I really like that this portrait is basically in black and white. The stark contrast has a really cool visual effect that makes my eyes very happy. I hope you like it as well.

Raven # 10 (illustrated by Lars Brown)

As the Kindly Ones begin destroying the residents of The Dreaming the Ravens move in to eat the dead.

This Raven has chosen the body of Ruthven to eat.

He appears in Sandman # 66 on page 14, in panel 2.

This is a fantastic portrait from Lars. I really like the expression on this Raven’s face. It’s almost as if he was caught at an inopportune moment. The eyes are perfect. I also like that he has one of Ruthven’s eyes in his mouth. Some might shy away from the gruesomeness of a raven eating a corpse, but Lars jumped right in and the result is this awesome portrait.

Punished Man # 1 (illustrated by Kai Martin)

Haroun al Raschid was troubled in his soul. He saw the many splendors of Baghdad and wanted them to last forever.

One night he decided it was time to preserve his kingdom and make a bargain with the King Of Dreams.

He used the golden key he wore around his neck and went into the depths of his palace. He passed through his harem and through his prisons.

There were three men in his prison and this is one of the punished men. Judging by his long beard and emancipated body I am guessing he’s been in a long time.

He appears in Sandman # 50, on page 11, in panel 5.

Man # 135 (illustrated by Nicole Ingram)

When Roderick Burgess died, his son, Alex, took over the Burgess empire.

In 1968, people would come to his home seeking enlightenment. He would teach them about Kundalini, yoga, tantric sex, astral travel, and other things that were, honestly, insignificant.

While at his home, he forbids the use of psychedelic or hallucinogenic drugs, fearing that they may somehow empower the imprisoned Dream King.

This man is one of the people who visited the Burgess house hoping to find illumination.

He appears in Sandman # 1, on page 23, in panel 2.
