Dignitary # 131 (illustrated by Max Rugers)

“The Heart Of The Star” from Endless Nights is one of my favorite Sandman stories.

Dream and Killala visit Mizar during an unprecedented gathering of dignitaries from various dimensions, planets and star systems.

This dignitary is one of the many beings at the parliament.

He can be seen in “The Heart Of The Star” on page 18 in panels 4 and 6.

One of the things I really like about this story is the number of diverse characters and Max really captured the weirdness of this particular Dignitary. I also really like the realistic nature of this portrait. This character doesn't look cartoony, but looks like an actual goat headed alien. Finally, Max's use of colors also really make this portrait "pop," particularly the blues and the contrast between the two blues he used for this portrait. It's very vibrant and stands out!!! This is a fantastic portrait from Max!!!
