Runaway Girl (illustrated by Max Rugers)

In Brief Lives, Delirium is living on the streets of London with Mary Canby, who has been homeless since her son died in some type of industrial accident.

While Mary is sitting on the street asking for money, this young woman walks by. Mary asks if she is a runaway and suggests that she goes home to her family. She says that her family will forgive her for whatever she’s done, because that’s what parents do.

She appears in Sandman # 41 on page 7, in panel 4.

Max did an exceptional job with this portrait. I love the colors he chose and the whole design. She also had a fantastic expression on her face. You can almost feel the loneliness she must be feeling. I think Max really captured the feeling of isolation with this portrait. This is one of my favorite portraits from Max!!!
