Roman Citizen # 144 (illustrated by John Carmine)

In Fables And Reflections, we have the story of Augustus Caesar and Lycius who spend the day on the steps of a temple near the market place as prompted by a dream that Caesar had, in which he was told to spend the day as a man, not as an emperor.

This Roman Citizen appears in Sandman # 30, page 14, panel 4.

John did a fantastic job with this portrait. One thing that I really appreciate is that John is the first artist to make one of these Roman citizens a woman. I really like the details of this portrait. I like the simple things like the flowers in her hair and the fact that this portrait really seems to glow.

Here is Roman Citizen # 144…
