Marco Polo’s Expedition Guide (illustrated by Anna Hybsier)

In 1271, Marco Polo was sixteen and he set out on his first expedition.

Along with his father and uncle, there were two elderly Dominican Priests and an expedition guide.

This is the expendition guide who helped them journey to Kublai Kahn’s empire.

He can be seen in Sandman # 39, on page 12, panel 3.

I really like this portrait from Anna. I like his hat and the colors she used for this portrait. I also like that she included some of the Italian backgrounds in this portrait. It definitely helps set the scene for this expedition.
