The Black Guard # 2 (illustrated by Lars Brown)

In A Game Of You, Barbie is pursued by the Cuckoo’s elite army, The Black Guard.

The Black Guard were sent out in search of Barbie and her friends and bring them to the palace of The Cuckoo. At one point the Black Guard came close to finding them, but Barbie, Primando, Luz and Wilkinson hid under a snow drift and were able to avoid detection.

Eventually the Black Guard captured Barbie who was then delivered to the Cuckoo.

The Black Guard appears in several parts of the A Game of You Storyline. This particular member of The Black Guard appears in Sandman # 36 on page 7 in panel 4.

Lars did a great job with this portrait. I really like the blue highlights on his black armor. That really helps make the black seem even blacker, especially in contrast to the light blue sky. The two red eyes really give this character a menacing appearance.
