Resident Of The Dreaming # 7 (illustrated by John Carmine)

Dream decides that he must go to Hell to rescue Nada. It has come to his attention that he may have been a bit rash in sending her to Hell for rejecting his love.

He calls together all the residents of The Dreaming and tells them what he is about to do and expresses his concern that he may not be returning since Lucifer holds a grudge against him for publicly embarrassing him when he last visited Hell to reclaim his stolen helmet.

This creature is one of the residents of The Dreaming who stood before the King Of Dreams and listened to his speech.

He appears in Sandman # 22, on page 7, in panel 4.

I really like this portrait from John. In the published comic we catch of glimpse of him amongst a group of creatures. John did a straight forward interpretation of this character, but the line work for the creature’s fur really stands out and gives the impression that he is definitely furry…sort of like a spider version of Cousin It. This is a particularly fun portrait.
