Prisoner In Hell # 1 (illustrated by Kai Martin)

In Preludes And Nocturnes, Morpheus goes to Hell to recover his helmet, stolen by Ruthven Sykes and traded to a demon for protection from Roderick Burgess. Etrigan leads him through various parts of Hell, including through the cell block where Nada is imprisoned.

This man is one of the several people that can be seen along the cliff path.

He appears in Sandman # 4, on page 7, in panel 2.

Kai did an amazing job with this obscure character. In the published comic we see very little of this character in the background, but Kai brought a level of despair and desperation to this character that is completely appropriate for someone imprisoned in Hell. On top of the character, I really like the details, like the cracks in the wall of his cell.
