Dreamers at The Wake

One of the cool things about the Sandman universe is that there are tons of characters that are essentially background characters, but if you've ever read one of Gaiman's scripts to Sandman, each panel is described with perfect detail and includes descriptions of everything from settings to minor characters that need to be accounted for.

These are two Dreamers who appear in Sandman # 71. Who are these characters and why were they at The Wake. How did Dream affect their lives? I have no idea and that is a mystery that only Neil Gaiman and Michael Zulli know.

The first Dreamer looks like he is wearing a mask that is sucked into his face. I do not know if he is a significant character in the DC Universe or Vertigo, but if he is I would love to know who he is.

The second Dreamer is also an interesting character. Both Scott and I were reminded of Dr. Phillip Decker from Clive Barker's Nightbreed when thinking of this character.

Both of these Dreamers have stories to tell and I would love to hear them.
