San Francisco Resident # 19 (illustrated by Max Rugers)

Emperor Joshua Norton, the first emperor of the United States Of America died on January 8th, 1880 around 8:00pm.

This is one of the men who rushed to his side, as the rain fell and the city lost one of San Francisco’s most celebrated citizens.

He appears in Sandman # 31, on page 24, in panel 5.

I like this portrait from Max. I like the red and how it contrasts with the blacks and grays of the character.
