Ghost Cat # 6 (illustrated by Anna Hybsier)

In Season of Mists, Bast tells Morpheus that she will tell him the location of Destruction in exchange for The Key To Hell. Ultimately this does not sway Dream’s decision and Bast leaves The Dreaming empty handed.

In Brief Lives, Dream calls upon Bast hoping to discover Destruction’s whereabouts. Dream and Bast meet in a dream, in her lost city. There are several ghostly cats wandering through the desert. Bast describes this cat as one of her folk who was embalmed in order to live forever in the world beyond. Their physical forms were exhumed and were ground up and used to fertilize the land. “Now they are only memories, slowling fading from the land and the world. Dreams of Ghost Cats, and Cats of Ghost Dreams.”

This Ghost Cat appears in Sandman # 46, on page 11, in pagels 5 and 6.

I really like this portrait from Anna. I think she did a great job with the paleness and hints of blue to make this cat seem ghostly. Also, the background, although simple is pretty awesome. I really like the curve of the slopes. It feels very natural.

Here is Ghost Cat # 6…
