Sithcundman Of Necropoilis Litharge (illustrated by Lukas Ketner)

When the Endless gather at the stony crossroads in the shadow of the Quinsy Mountains they are met by Sithcundman of Necropolis Litharge and his assistants. The Endless are there to retrieve the Cerements and the Book of Ritual that is in his keeping and under his protection.

He tells them that these items are in the catacombs beneath the city and the Endless create an envoy to retrieve the shroud and book because even Death is not allowed to enter the catacombs beneath the Necropolis.

Sithcundman appears in Sandman # 70, on pages 6-7.

This character was a perfect fit for Lukas and his artistic style. He has a way of drawing that works really well with characters who wear tattered suits and worn top hats. I love the age lines on this character’s face. He looks ancient in the published comic and Lukas easily brings that to this portrait. I also really like the sadness that is clearly visible in this character’s eyes.

Here is Sithcundman of Necropolis Litharge…
