Worlds’ End Patron # 51 (illustrated by Anna Hybsier)

Brant Tucker is one of many people stuck at The Worlds’ End free house as a storm rages outside. He, like the others, listens to some of the other patrons tell stories, but he also wanders around the inn and sees a wide range of people and creatures who are trapped by the storm.

As the night wears on the Brant speaks to the innkeeper about Worlds’ End and how the inn is a refuge when the world ends, even if it’s only for a little while.

This character is in the background, sitting at one of the tables in the inn enjoying a cold drink and probably listening to stories, similar to Brant.

He appears in Sandman # 56, on page 3, in panel 1.

As with a majority of the characters within the Worlds’ End storyline, this character does not tell his story and remains a mystery to us. Anna took this character and gave him a personality and a charm that was missing from this background character. This is a fantastic portrait of an obscure character.
