Sleeping Sickness Patient # 2 (illustrated by Max Rugers)

In 1916, after Dream is imprisoned, many people succumbed to the sleeping sickness.

Many were sent to Charity Wards to get care while they slept and sometimes they would be placed in large rooms filled with beds.

This man is one of the countless victims of the mysterious sickness.

He can be seen in Sandman # 1, page 14, panel 4.

I like this portrait from Max. This character appears in only one panel, but Max really took this character and added depth to him. I like Max’s use of shadows, and the dark gray and purple colors that combined give a very atmospheric feeling to this portrait.
