Kubilai Khan’s Guard # 1 (illustrated by Lars Brown)

In “Soft Places” Marco Polo accompanied his father Nicolo Polo and uncle to China and they were given audience before Kubilai Khan. They planned on converting Kubilai Kahn to Christianity.

As expected, when Nicolo Polo stands before the great Khan, there are palace guards at his side. This man is one of the palace guards.

He appears in Sandman # 39, on page 12, in panel 2.

This is an amazing portrait from Lars. I love everything about this portrait from the blues used for the curtains to the positioning of the character in the portrait and the design of the guard. This is just such a wonderful portrait for a character that is simply standing in the background.
