Corpse # 8 (illustrated by Lukas Ketner)

In The Kindly Ones, Thessaly found Lyta Hall as she wandered the streets aimlessly after the supposed death of her son. She took her back to her apartment and placed her in a protection circle because she knew, with the events that had been put into motion, Morpheus would be searching for Lyta, possibly to kill her.

Thessaly fell asleep and dreams of people hanging from silver chains, hooks puncturing their skin and she feels a flicker of sadness and regret.

When she awakes she sees Dream standing before her.

The dream is something very reminiscent of the Hellraiser films, but I suspect that Thessaly has never seen those movies. Perhaps this is a nightmare of remembrance of things past…or perhaps it is simply a nightmare.

This character is one of the corpses hanging in Thessaly’s nightmare.

He appears in Sandman # 65, on page 18, in panel 3.

This is another amazing portrait from Lukas. I love the darkness of the lines on his body and face. The varying weight of the lines really adds a reality to the portrait. I also like the shocked expression on his face. The chains and hook definitely adds a horror to the portrait. I really like this portrait and it makes me very happy that I do not have dreams like this…
