Wycziezbsky (illustrated by Anna Hybsier)

Wycziezbsky is one of Merv Pumpkinhead’s bat helpers.

He, and the other bat helpers appear primarily in The Kindly Ones. He first appears when Merv is working and Matthew stops to talk to him about previous ravens. Merv, of course, complains about cleaning up the raven poop all the time. The bat helpers can be seen flying around Merv, probably being more of a distraction than a help.

The bat helpers appear again when Merv and Abudah are moving a volcano.

The bat helpers appear a third time, this time when Merv is about to launch an assault on The Kindly Ones. The little bat helpers are now carrying tiny machine guns.

Wycziezbsky appears in Sandman # 57, 60, and 66.

This is one of my favorite portraits from Anna. In The Kindly Ones, the bat helpers are tiny and without many features. Anna took this character and gave him definitive features. She turned him into a cute little bat wearing a cute little hat. I love it!!!!
