Delirium’s Flying Frog (illustrated by Anna Hybsier)

In Three Septembers And January Despair challenges Dream to use his “little dreams” to affect Joshua Norton, who has fallen on hard times and entered Despair’s realm.

In September 1864, Emperor Norton and Samuel Clemens are sitting in a saloon discussing all manner of things, including frogs. Norton suggests that Samuel Clemens should write a story about frogs (which he did, entitled “The Celebrated Jumping Frog Of Calaveras County” which was published on November 18, 1865).

Delirium is inspired by the conversation and makes a flying frog.

This flying frog appears in Sandman # 31 on page 13, in panel 4.

Anna did a great job with this portrait. This frog is absolutely adorable, and really, there’s not much else to say!!! I love this flying frog!!!
