Arthur Marsten (illustrated by Max Rugers)

On June 10th, 1916, Dream is captured by Roderick Burgess. In Toronto, Canada, Ellie Marsten is sitting at a table reading “Through The Looking Glass” and falls asleep.

Her father, Arthur, carries her up to her bed and tucks her in.

She never wakes up, a victim of the Sleeping Sickness.

This is her father, Arthur Marsten.

She appears in Sandman # 1, on page 10, in panel 2.

Max took an interesting approach to this character. I did not picture him to look as Max interpreted him. I envisioned him to look a bit younger, but since this character is seen only as a silhouette, it's impossible to say what he looks like.

Max's line work is, as always, exceptional and I love the redness of the background. It adds a vibrancy to the portrait that I really like.
