Man # 202 (illustrated by John Carmine)

In London in June 1920, the news of John Hathaway’s suicide spreads through the city. Young boys are selling newspapers with headlines questioning his mental health and asking questions of the mysteries surrounding his death. The streets are bustling.

This man is standing on the sidewalk watching two boys play in the street.

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

In the published comic, we cannot see much of this character aside from his hat and hair. John took those two features and created this character. He did a fantastic job accurately capturing the era in which this man lived and I love the details in the background, like the car and the buildings.

Here is Man # 202…
