Demon # 2

This Demon is one of the creepiest and weirdest Demons from the Sandman series.

This Demon appears in Season Of Mists and she seems appropriate for tonight.

Have a Happy and Safe Halloween!!!

Demon # 16

This Demon appears in Season Of Mists and is sitting by the camp fire with Ketele and Rimmon.

I really like the little hairs that Scott added to this Demon. It makes him creepier than he is in the published comic.

Erasmus Fry

When I re-read Sandman earlier this year I made a discovery that I had never thought about during my previous readings (and there were many) of the series. Sandman is full really creepy people. Sure, there are sweet and lovable characters as well, but there is something about the creepy characters that really stick with you. I recently joked with Scott saying that he has probably never drawn this many creepy people for a single project before.

Erasmus Fry is one of those creepy people. While I also find him a little sympathetic at the end of Calliope I still feel that he's ultimately a pretty creepy guy. He probably lives in the house that kids avoid on Halloween.

Scott did an excellent job with this drawing. I think he captured the character perfectly...a grumpy, somewhat creepy man that, even as adults, we'd probably try to avoid on Halloween.

I hope you enjoy it.

Demon # 82

This Demon is not easily recognized, but she appears in the club scene where Dream and Choronzon are battling over the ownership of Dream's helmet.

This Demon looks pretty much nothing like the character in the comic, which is both cool and unfortunate since Scott did a fantastic job on this one and I really like the design and creepiness of the character, but the Demon in the original comic also was visually pretty interesting and also delved into an that Scott hasn't approached yet (but will due to the number of strippers and bondage men and women who appear in Brief Lives).

Still, see if you can spot her. I described her as a "Horse-Faced Demon).

Demon # 63

Today we bring you another Demon. This Demon is a lot more difficult to find than most of the ones you've seen so far. It even took me a little searching to find him, but once I discovered the page and panel he was on this little guy was super easy to spot.

This little guy is so cute.

Dreamer At The Wake # 13

There are tons of cool and interesting looking characters that are seen at The Wake.

This is one of those characters.

I called him "zombie man" because the way that Michael Zulli illustrated him in the original comic reminded me of a zombie. Is he one of the undead? Was that Gaiman's intention? Who knows, but since it is the Halloween season I thought it might be nice to share him.

This demon appears in Season Of Mists and Scott did a fantastic job with this guy...

Demon # 167

This Demon is an example of why this project is so cool.

In the comic, this Demon's face is not visible. All you can see is that he has a longish head and that he's wearing some sort of fur coat.

Scott gave this character a life and a personality not found in the original comic by finally showing us what his face looks like.

The Snake

The Snake has no name, but he lives in a cavern beneath the world and from the Snake's mouth drips venom, which Sigyn catches in a bowl to prevent the venom from dripping onto Loki. If the venom drips into Loki's eyes, he writhes and screams and this causes the earth to shake.
