Sailor On The Sea Witch # 1 (illustrated by Max Rugers)

Jim, one of the patrons of Worlds’ End recounts the story of his life and of one particular voyage on The Sea Witch.

Jim tells the story of meeting a gentleman named Robert Gadling who was a passenger on the Sea Witch and was going back to England. On their journey they encountered a ferocious storm and after it passed the sea was eerily calm with no wind to propel them. The crew spent the day repairing things that the wind had damaged the previous day and each of the sailors performed their own superstitious rituals hoping to call the wind to guide them once again.

One of the sailors noticed a large school of fish racing toward them on the horizon.

This man is one of the sailors who is on deck and sees the school of fish and helps catch them.

He appears in Sandman # 53, page 16, panel 5.

I really like this portrait from Max. His red hair definitely stands out and is very vibrant in contrast to the rest of this portrait. I think that the one thing that I really like about this portrait is that the character appears to be staring out at the sea. His expression seems to be about contemplation and admiration of the sea.
