Man At The Renaissance Fair # 20 (illustrated by Max Rugers)

Hob and his girlfriend Gwen attend a Renaissance Fair, in the epilogue to The Wake. Hob is, of course, disillusioned with the fair, mostly because he lived through the Renaissance and finds the whole thing inaccurate and over romanticized. At one point he is talking Dave (and his sheep puppet Lambkin) telling him that back in the day people would talk about a “vegetable lamb,” which was a lamb that grew on a bush. This was, of course, cotton.

While Hob is talking to Dave, this man is walking past them.

He appears in Sandman # 73, on page 10, panel 5. He is on the far left.

I like this portrait from Max. It’s simple and yet intricate at the same time. I really like the detail on his beard and hair.
