Dead Man # 13 (illustrated by Lukas Ketner)

Orpheus journeys to the Underworld to rescue his recently deceased wife, Eurydice.

As he enters the great hall with the thrones of Lord Hades and Queen Persephone he encounters an audience of the dead.

This Dead Man is one of the many dead men in the Underworld.

He appears in The Song Of Orpheus, on page 31, in panel 2. I really like Lukas’ style and he does an awesome job with details. This portrait is no exception. The line work on this dead man’s face is exceptional and the shading adds so much depth to the tone of the character. This is a pretty minor character within the Sandman Universe, but Lukas’ approach to this really makes him stand out as a memorable character.
