Franklin (illustrated by Anna Hybsier)

After Dream regains his tools of office he took the opportunity to sit in the park and feed the pigeons. In this park, Franklin and some friends were paying soccer. At one point he accidentally kicked his ball toward Dream, who caught it and gave it back to him.

When Death joined her brother, Franklin once again accidentally kicked his ball in her direction, perhaps as an excuse to ask her out on a date. She accepted saying “Sure, Franklin. You’ll see me again soon.” He was baffled how she knew his name.

Dream spent the day with Death and at the end of the day they return to the park. Franklin was talking to his friends about Death and the ball flew over Franklin’s head and he ran into the street and was hit by a car and died instantly.

Franklin saw Death again and they talked for a few moments before she walks him over to the car and tells him that there’s “something you maybe oughta see.”

Franklin appears in Sandman # 8.

Anna did a fantastic job with this portrait. I like his happy and carefree expression. It really fits well with this character in the published comic.
