Man # 38 (illustrated by Lukas Ketner)

In London in June 1920, the news of John Hathaway’s suicide spreads through the city. Young boys are selling newspapers with headlines questioning his mental health and asking questions of the mysteries surrounding his death, including the involvement of Roderick Burgess and his Order of Ancient Mysteries. The streets are bustling with people.

This man is on the streets this day. He is staring down the sidewalk. He has a very comical expression on his face and I have to wonder what he is staring at to cause him to have this expression. I am guessing he is staring at the young lady walking down the street.

He appears in Sandman # 1, on page 14, in panel 1.

Lukas did a wonderful job with this portrait. He captured this character perfectly. He gave this man a working class appearance, which really works perfectly with this character. I love the shape of his nose and the expression on his face.

Here is Man # 38…
