Like the Eggman from yesterday, this Ogre appears in only one issue of A Game Of You...and it's even the same panel as the Eggman. The Ogre can be seen walking toward the Isle of Thorns and into oblivion as the skerry is uncreated.

The Eggman

Nope...this is not John Lennon.

This character, who I have called The Eggman, appears in one panel of A Game Of You. He can be seen, slightly off panel, walking along the causeway to the Isle Of Thorns and into Dream's embrace.

And by the way, I think Eric Burdon was The Eggman. John was the Walrus (according to his song "God").

Serial Killer # 20

This serial killer is one of the many serial killers sitting in the audience listening to The Corinthian's speech at the Cereal Convention.

This killer is very easy to spot. He has super flat '80's hair. Scott modernized him a bit...and made him a bit more gloomy than the super excited killer in the published comic. I sort of liked the '80's hair.....

Dickon Hawksthorne

While Dream, Destruction and the original Corinthian visited the waking world, Dickon Hawksthorne attempted to steal Dream's ruby. When caught, Hawksthorne spoke rather harshly to the Dream King. He threatened "Hold Your tongue, sir, or I'll whet my needle and sew your lips together."

Dream was not pleased with this mortal and Dream tells Hawksthorne that he rarely tells fortunes, but in this instance he will. He tells the thief "Tyburn tree haunts your dreams, Master Hawksthorne, and it will continue so to do, until you are hung there in chains, without benefit of clergy. And your death shall come as a relief to you. For every night, from now until then, you will dance on air with a hempen rope around your neck, and the jeers and catcalls of all those you have ever cared for echoing in your ears..."

Dickon Hawksthorne quickly returned the jewel to Dream.

Scott did a great job with this one. If you look closely you will see Tyburn tree in the background....

The Clown

This Clown is one of the citizens of Barbie's world.

This clown appears in one panel from the A Game Of You storyline and can be seen as Barbie is being marched through town by The Black Guard.

I really like this one.

The Black Guard

The Black Guard is an elite army who serves the Cuckoo.

The Black Guard were sent out in search of Barbie and her friends and at one point they came close to finding her. Thankfully Barbie, Primando, Luz and Wilkinson were able to avoid detection by hiding under a snow drift.

Eventually the Black Guard captured Barbie while being directed by the traitor Luz. She was marched through town and into the clutches of the Cuckoo.

Egyptian Bird Creature

Okay, I seriously have no idea what to call this character and so I'll just stick with the "Egyptian Bird Creature."

This creature is in only one panel of A Game Of You and is seen in a group of citizens of Barbie's world marching toward the Isle of Thorns and entering Dream prior to the skerry being destroyed.

Yellow Fuzzy Creature

This Yellow Fuzzy Creature appears in one panel of A Game Of You.

You can spot him in the scene where Barbie is being marched through town on her way to the Cuckoo.

This is a particularly cool painting because the character in the published comic is seen from the back and so it's face isn't visible at all. Scott took the character and did his own interpretation of what the character will look like. This is one of my favorite things about this project and Scott did a fantastic job with this character.

I hope you like it.

When Barbie visits Wanda's home town to attend the funeral, she meets Wanda's Aunt at a diner and these two rednecks are sitting in a booth and as Barbie walks past them, one makes a rude comment to her.

Scott painted these two rednecks in suck a way that they can be combined into one single painting. I really like redneck # 2. He sort of reminds me of Elmer Fudd.

Here are the rednecks...

Redneck # 1

Redneck # 2

Here are the rednecks combined into a single image.

Snake Creature

This snake creature makes a brief appearance in A Game Of You as Barbie is being marched through town on her way to the Cuckoo.

He is one of the many strange creatures in Barbie's world.

Aisleen is Pharamond's receptionist at Farrell Travel.

She informs Mr. Farrell (Pharamond's current name) that he has two incredibly odd visitors, who just happen to be Dream and Delirium.

She appears in only a few panels in the Brief Lives storyline.

Egg Headed Man

This character is one of the characters that is standing on the sidelines while Barbie is marched through town after being captured by the Black Guard.

This character appears in only one panel of A Game Of You, but he's still a very striking and memorable character.

Weirdzo No. 1

Today is Neil's birthday and I wanted to try to find something special to post here (I really wish I had Neil's portrait...but not yet, maybe next year) and so today I thought that I would share Weirdzo No. 1.

I chose this character because Wanda read the Weirdzos comic, Hyperman, when she was a little boy and and the characters really stuck with her, much like Neil's characters in the Sandman universe have stuck with least that's why I'm assuming you are here.

Anyway, Happy Birthday, Neil!!!

Serial Killer # 21

This killer is in the audience listening to The Corinthian's speech at the Cereal Convention.

This guy could be anyone....he looks completely normal and unsuspecting.....

I like that Scott used a bit of blood splatter on these recent serial killers. It sort of makes them a bit for frightening.

Serial Killer # 22

Of course this guy is a serial's pretty obvious even without the blood splatters!!!

This killer is in the audience listening to The Corinthian's speech at the Cereal Convention.

Serial Killer # 10

This is one of those characters that Scott REALLY out did himself.

This character is one of the many serial killers listening to Nimrod's speech at the Cereal Convention.

Scott took this random and background character and made him severely creepy, in my opinion.

I hope you enjoy him!

Kris and his Son

Today we have two characters.

Kris and his son, along with Andros help protect Orpheus from danger.

Kris' son (who is never named) is the first one to encounter Dream and Delirium as they arrive on the island.

After Dream has a conversation with his estranged son, Kris takes Dream and Delirium to Destruction's island.

Dream and his sister return to the island one final time to grant Orpheus his greatest wish, his death, and afterwards, Kris' son digs the grave for Orpheus.

Here are Kris and his son...
