Dreamer At The Wake # 20 (illustrated by Anna Hybsier)

At The Wake for Morpheus, everyone is present to say their goodbyes and to celebrate his life.

In turn each of the Endless, with the exception of Destruction, speak about their brother and afterwards others who were touched by the King Of Dreams tell of their memories.

While Destiny is speaking, many people sit and listen to his words. Hob Gadling is sitting near Mad Hettie and this character is sitting between them.

What is this creature? How was he touched by Dream? At this point we don’t know.

The only thing we do know is that perhaps he shouldn’t be sitting between two people who have lived for a very long time and have met, at least briefly, in passing.

This character appears in Sandman # 73, on page 5, in panels 5 and 6.

I really like this portrait. Anna did a great job with this character. He definitely has a touch of sadness about him. Perhaps it is because he is attending the Wake of Morpheus or perhaps it is because he is being squished by Hob and Mad Hettie.
