Steadfast City Leader # 4 (illustrated by Max Rugers)

In Worlds’ End, Brant Tucker finds himself at an inn, trapped by an unusual storm.

While wandering around the inn he encounters a man known only as The Seeker. He is searching for a reality where Prez Rickard becomes president.

The Seeker recounts the story of Prez’s legacy to Brant, including a few of his important contributions to his hometown and the world.

One of the things the Seeker tells Brant to demonstrate Prez’s intelligence, integrity and his desire to help his community revolves around a particular day when his mother lost sight of her son. She found him, several hours later, with the city leaders of Steadfast discussing civics and “answering their questions with a depth and perspicacity that amazed his elders.”

This woman is one of the city leaders who spoke with Prez that day.

She appears in Sandman # 54, on page 4, in panel 3.

I like Max’s portrait for this character. In the published comic, this woman is barely visible and so he had to create a character that seemed to fit in with the rest of the visible characters in this panel. I think he did an excellent job with this task and with this character.
