Citizen Of Baghdad # 5 (illustrated by Max Rugers)

In “Ramadan” we learn about the city of Baghdad and its many splendors.

The court of Haroun al Raschid was one of the wonders of the world and al Raschid ruled his kingdom with wisdom and compassion. Under his rule the city flourished and prospered.

This man is one of the people who attended Haroun al Raschid’s court.

He appears in Sandman # 50, on page 5, in panel 2.

While I don’t necessarily envision the character in the published comic looking like Max’s portrait, I do like it and I love that Max took a character whose face is not visible and gave him a unique look. He creates a realism in his work that I definitely appreciate.
