Man # 132 (illustrated by Max Rugers)

In November 1930, Ruthven Sykes and Ethel Dee runaway from Roderick Burgess and his empire. They take a boat to the United States.

This man is one of the many people at the docks, near the ticket counter, on the day they buy their tickets and leave England for the final time.

He appears in Sandman # 1, on page 16, in panel 2.

I like this portrait by Max. It’s very dramatic and features a wonderful texture to it. It has great line work and I love the colors he used, particularly this shade of blue. While this character may not be the most significant character in the Sandman universe…or significant at all, he is still a wonderful portrait!!!
