Demon # 95

This is a pretty cool and odd demon.

In the original published comic he looks a bit more sinister than Scott's interpretation of the character, but seriously, how can a demon be seen as sinister if he has a rectangular head!!!

He is one of the audience members of the Hellfire Club. See if you can find him.

Demon # 107

This demon is present in the Hellfire Club when Morpheus defeats Choronzon to regain his helmet.

The demon is barely visible and pushed off to the side of the final panel on the page. Scott did a great job giving more personality to this background character.

Demon # 139

Along with the previous demon, this character is one of the demons who is blocking Dream's path as he is about to leave Hell. He's even in the same panel as Demon # 61.

I described his as the demon with the "mean eyes and dripping mouth."

Demon # 61

This demon is one of the demons who is blocking Dream's path as he is about to leave Hell.

He's pretty easy to find.

Demon # 59

This demon appears in when Dream is searching for his missing helmet.

If you look at the original published character, he's a very bizarre creature and Scott did a fantastic job capturing the bizarre nature of this demon.

It is also apparent with this drawing that Scott really enjoyed the series of single sweeping lines with his initial penciled sketch.

Demon # 143

Demon Week continues with another Demon from Preludes And Nocturnes.

This demon appears after the challenge at the Hellfire Club when Dream is about to leave Hell. He is standing in the front of a group of demons ready to confront Dream at the command of Lucifer, who ultimately let's Dream leave Hell.

Grab the book and see if you can spot him.

Demon # 115

This Demon is one of the lucky few who was present when Morpheus defeated Choronzon at one of the games of Hell.

Demon # 43

This week is going to be Demon Week. For the entire week I will be posting two demons a in the morning and one in the evening.

The first demon is one of the many demons from Preludes And Nocturnes. He is pretty prominent on the double page spread where Dream and Lucifer and looking down upon the hoards of demons.

Serial Killer # 7

Scott's really been into painting the serial killers lately.

Here is another of the serial killers. He is one of the many creepy unnamed serial killers who attended the Cereal Convention.

Serial Killer # 8

No, this blog has not turned into a Hellboy character blog and this is not Rasputin (although I would love to see someone do a Hellboy character blog...are there any obsessive Hellboy fans out there?).

This is another serial killer from The Doll's House.

Serial Killer # 14

This is one of the many random serial killers in the audience listening to Nimrod's opening ceremonies speech of the Cereal Convention.

The thing that is scary about this guy is that he could be just anyone. He is just a random person sitting in a crowded room...watching...waiting...

Father (or a Man from Endless Nights)

This character is a man from Destiny's story in Endless Nights.

I called him "the Father" because he seemed to be looking down at a small boy proudly and it struck me that he had to be the boys father. I suppose I should have called him Man # xxx or something like that, but Father just seemed more appropriate.

Serial Killer - The Cop

This serial killer is a pretty scary one.

When you are driving, how many times do you wonder if the police officer who pulls you over might be a serial killer? Probably not very often. This serial killer, as seen in The Doll's House, dresses as a police officer in order to attack unsuspecting victims...or perhaps he is a real police officer who is secretly a serial killer...

The Corinthian

Well, my week of creepy characters was unfortunately interrupted when my computer decided that it wasn't going to turn on.

Sorry about that... celebrate the return I've decided to start off Monday with two of the scariest nightmares of The Dreaming. The Corinthian is, according to Morpheus, a dark mirror of humanity.

The first Corinthian was created long before even Orpheus was born and served the king of dreams until Morpheus was captured by Roderick Burgess. The Corinthian left The Dreaming in the 1940's and walked the mortal world, becaming quite the legend among serial killers. He was even the guest of honor at the Cereal Convention.

As Morpheus uncreated The Corinthian he reflected that perhaps it was his own fault that The Corinthian was flawed, wishing to infect humanity the joy of death and fear.

Morpheus kept the skull of The Corinthian in a closet within his palace.

Many years later Morpheus decided it was time to recreate The Corinthian. While talking to Matthew Morpheus says "Imagine that you woke in the night and rose and seemed to see before you another person, whom slowly you perceived to be yourself. Someone had entered in the night and placed a mirror in your sleeping place, made of a black metal. You had been frightened only of your reflection. But then the reflection slowly raised one hand, while your own hand stayed still...A dark mirror...That was always the intention....But the gulf between conception and execution is wide, and many things can happen on the way."

He admits that the original Corinthian was flawed. He is determined that the second Corinthian will not be.

Here are both versions of The Corinthian.

I like how the first Corinthian is wearing red, to signify blood, while the second, more benevolent Corinthian is wearing blue.

I hope you enjoy them.

Demon # 169

Nope, this is not Pinhead...or at least I do not think he is.

This is one of the demons from Season Of Mists. He can be seen in the final chapter of the storyline and is one of the first demons to re-enter Hell after the angels take control.

Did Mike Dringenberg intentionally draw this character to resemble Pinhead? Was he in the script as Pinhead or just a random demon? I would love to hear from either Gaiman or Dringenberg to figure out if this is indeed Clive Barker's most famous Cenobite or if he is just a random demon.

Demon # 108

Creepy Week continues with a Demon from Preludes and Nocturnes.

This demon is a great example of Scott taking the character from the published comic and making him his own. In the comic, this demon is comical and out of place in Hell. Scott turned a ridiculous character into a seriously creepy little demon.

Go check out Preludes And Nocturnes to see the original version of this character and let us know what you think of Scott's interpretation!

Serial Killer # 6

Continuing on the creepy characters for the week

This serial killer attended the Cereal Convention.

One of the things I really enjoy about this project is seeing Scott's interpretation of some of the background characters that a typical reader would ignore. This is one of those characters. With each character that I don't immediately recognize I always look for the character in the comic to compare the two.

This serial killer is on page 3 of issue # 14. Can you find him?

George is one creepy guy.

He is seemingly stalking Barbie, but is secretly one of the Children Of The Cuckoo and he has the ability to open his chest to release a murder of crows that can influence the dreams of the people.

One of George's crows unwittingly visited Thessaly who recognized the bird for what it was and then calmly visited George and stabbed him in the chest and then cut off his face.

Here is George...before his face was removed.

Old Man On The Beach

This is one of those characters who is seemingly unimportant but he always strikes me as being significant.

This man is walking along the beach in Australia when he encounters Lucifer relaxing, watching the sunset. The old man tells Lucifer about his family and his life and then just continues on his way.

This scene, one of the closing moments of Season Of Mists, is one of my favorite scenes from the storyline.

Here is the Old Man on the beach.
