London Police Officer # 1 (illustrated by Max Rugers)

In Preludes And Nocturnes, Roderick Burgess, the Head of the Order Of Ancient Mysteries, was at an inquest regarding the death of Jon Hathaway and the loss of many books and manuscripts from the Royal Museum.

His involvement in the crimes and the death of Professor Hathaway could not be proven and he was cleared of all charges.

This is one of the London Police Officers standing outside the court as Roderick and Alex Burgess, Ethel Cripps (later known as Ethel Dee) and Ruthven Sykes leaves.

He appears in Sandman # 1, on page 14, in panel 2.

Max did a fantastic job with this portrait. The portrait almost appears comical with the officer’s slightly elongated neck, but it really works well with this portrait and does not come across as a parody of a police officer. I really like the backgrounds and the colors used in this portrait. He’s an easily ignored character in the Sandman universe, but this portrait really stands out!!!
