Man # 99 (illustrated by Max Rugers)

Once every century Death becomes mortal to better understand the lives she is taking.

In 1994, Death once again became mortal and spend the day in New York City, as a young woman named Didi, where she met a young man named Sexton.

After having her ankh stolen by The Eremite, she wanted to buy a new one and so she purchased one from a street seller.

This man walked past Didi and Sexton as she was picking out a new ankh.

He appears in Death: The High Cost Of Living # 3, on page 12, in panel 8.

I really like this portrait from Max. He approached this character with a more sketchy style than he typically uses, but it works well and still contains a level of details that is seen in most of his work. I also really like the added addition of the paper to the portrait. It’s loud, but feels appropriate for a character living in New York.
