Dreamer At The Wake # 41 (illustrated by Anna Hybsier)

As people fall asleep, they gather at the wake for Morpheus. They stand watching The Endless, “bigger than storm clouds” build a house of remembrance in the heart of The Dreaming.

The crowd of people grows larger as they wait for the building to be completed.

This man is one of the people watching the Endless, waiting for the building to be finished, waiting to go inside.

He appears in Sandman # 71 on page 1, in panel 3.

This man is standing in a crowd of people. None of the people are easily recognizable and we can’t see the faces of a majority of the people, including this character, but I’ve always wondered if this was Tim Hunter from The Books Of Magic. From the back we can see his moppish hair and that he’s wearing glasses. That doesn’t necessarily confirm that it’s Tim Hunter, but it’s a possibility and I would love to know if it is.

I do not think that Anna shared by curiosity of this character, but she certainly did an amazing job with this portrait. I really like his expression and the sadness that is clearly visible in his eyes. This is an absolutely fantastic portrayal of this character.
