Little Norwegian (illustrated by Max Rugers)

Merv Pumpkinhead has several bat helpers that follow him around throughout The Kindly Ones.

He appears when Merv is working and Matthew stops to talk to him about previous ravens.

The bat helpers appear again when Merv and Abudah are moving a volcano.

The Little Norwegian and the other bat helpers appear a third time when Merv is about to launch an assault on The Kindly Ones. The Little Norwegian can be seen carrying tiny machine gun.

The Little Norwegian appears in Sandman # 57, 60, and 66.

This is a fantastic portrait from Max. I love his realistic approach to this bat. He modeled The Little Norwegian after the Sword Nosed Bat from South America. I really like how his hat is slightly tilted on his head. That little detail adds a lot of personality to this character.
