The Tweeners (illustrated by Lukas Ketner)

As Barbie and her friends, Primanodo, Luz and Wilkinson, travel through The Land they find themselves wandering into a forest. Luz feels that they are being watched.

When night falls, they stop to sleep and when Barbie awakes she finds Primando dead, hanging from a tree. Barbie then hears the forest whispering.

Wilkinson realizes that these whispers are from Tweeners and they ran as fast and as far as they could, escaping The Tweeners.

The Tweeners appeared in Sandman # 35, on page 16 and 17.

Lukas took an interesting approach to The Tweeners. In the published comic we don’t really see what the Tweeners are. I assumed they were the trees. Lukas took the approach that they were creatures living within the trees. I like the detail Lukas put into these characters. He definitely made these weird creatures seem worthy of being frightened of. I completely understand why Barbie, Luz and Wilkinson ran from them.
