Previous Carnifex Carys # 3 (illustrated by John Carmine)

When Carnifex Carys XXXV goes into hiding during a revolt against his kingdom he assumes the safest place would be the tomb of the previous Carnifex’s. Of course this proves to be a fatal mistake when he is confronted by the mummified remains of Carnifex Carys XXXIV.

This is one of the previous Carnifex’s of Aurelia.

He appears in Sandman # 52 on page 22 in panel 1.

John did a fantastic job with this portrait. It’s a bit gruesome and he didn’t hold back with this portrait. I like that he is predominantly bones, but there are clumps of hair still clinging to his decomposed body.
