Dead Man # 25 (illustrated by Joelle Jones)

In The Sandman Special # 1, Orpheus journeys to the Underworld to rescue his recently deceased wife. As he enters the throne room of Lord Hades and Queen Persephone he encounters a large group of the dead. This Dead Man is one of the many dead men in the Underworld.

He appears in The Song Of Orpheus, on page 31, in panel 5.

Joelle did a great job with this portrait. The contrast between the blackness of the background and the stark whiteness of the dead man is intense and makes the character pop. I really like the blankness in his eyes.
