Sailor On The Sea Witch # 4 (illustrated by Anna Hybsier)

In Worlds’ End, Jim recounts his meeting a gentleman named Robert Gadling who was a passenger on the Sea Witch and was going back to England.

On their journey they faced a fierce storm and the following day the sea was calm with no wind to propel them. The crew spent the down time repairing things that the wind had damaged the previous day.

One of the sailors noticed a large school of fish racing toward them on the horizon. The men cast their nets and caught hundreds of fish as they passed the Sea Witch.

Suddenly the ship lurched as someone called out for land. A large sea serpent rose from the water briefly before vanishing before their eyes.

This man is one of the many sailors who caught fish as they leapt out of the ocean and saw the sea serpent.

He appears in Sandman # 53, page 17, panel 3.

I like this portrait from Anna. This sailor has an incredibly stoic expression on his face and a stern look in his eyes. He seems like the type of person to get things done. The netting in the background is a really nice tough setting the scene for his appearance in the published comic.
