Sleeping Sickness Patient # 1 (illustrated by Max Rugers)

In 1916, after Dream is imprisoned, many people succumbed to the sleeping sickness.

Many were sent to Charity Wards to get care while they slept and sometimes they would be placed in large rooms filled with beds.

This man is one of the countless victims of the mysterious sickness.

He can be seen in Sandman # 1, page 14, panel 4.

This is not an easy character to draw, but Max did a great job. The line work on his face is exceptional and I really like the motion this piece has.
