Small Minded Insect-Like Creature # 6 (illustrated by Kai Martin)

In the opening chapter of Sandman Overture, we discover that there is a distant planet where one of the dominant life forms is a small mindless insect-like creature.

These creatures are not intelligent. They are interested only in laying eggs and food, but they do have a tendency to swarm and when they swarm they are capable of making art or “exploring the solar system.”

This is one of those small minded insect-like creatures.

It is visible in Sandman Overture # 1, on page 1, in panel 3.

These creatures are beautifully bizarre. They are incredibly colorful, but they look horrifying. If I encountered I would be a bit apprehensive about it. Kai did a wonderful job giving this creature both the beauty and the creepiness that these creatures have.
