Paramedic # 2 & 3 (illustrated by Anna Hybsier)

In A Game Of You, Barbie’s apartment building in New York is destroyed by a hurricane. Wanda, George and a homeless woman named Maisie Hill were killed. Barbie was inside the apartment at the time the building collapsed.

These two paramedics responded to the scene of the devastation. They helped pull Barbie from the wreckage and took her to the hospital.

Mary Gentian was filming a news report and she was getting in the way of the paramedics and hostile words were exchanged between the paramedics and the news reporter.

These two paramedics appear in Sandman # 37, on page 12.

In the published piece, the paramedics had very little personality; they were blank slates. Anna made these characters seem like people you might have seen before, or maybe even someone you know. Looking into their eyes, it is easy to come up with life stories for them.
