Ghost Boy # 34 (illustrated by John Carmine)

Charles Rowland is the only student at St. Hilarions School for Boys over the holidays. He spends his day reading in the library.

When the dead return to the school Charles finds himself surrounded by the dead boys. They are around him wherever he is…in the lake, bathing, in the dormitory, and in the classrooms.

This ghost is one of the boys who is sitting behind Charless as he tries to read his text book.

He appears in Sandman # 25, on page 16, in panel 1.

John took a pretty straightforward approach to this character. I really like the darkness of this portrait. The blacks of the character are significantly darker than the background, which adds a really eerie feeling to the character and the portrait.
