Burgess’ Guard # 2 (illustrated by Max Rugers)

In the first issue of Sandman, Dream is accidentally captured by Roderick Burgess, who was attempting to capture Death.

Burgess had many guards watching over the captured Dream King throughout the years and this particular guard worked for Burgess in 1947.

He appears in Sandman # 1 on page 19, in panel 2.

I really like Max’s portrait for this character. He gives him an almost “mob” look about him, both with his outfit and the positioning of his body. I love the expression on his face. Another thing I really like about this is the background. Max used a torn up newspaper to add both texture to the portrait and also an interesting background. This is definitely a great portrait for one of Burgess’ guards.
