Citizen Of Baghdad # 9 (illustrated by Anna Hybsier)

The court of Haroun al Raschid was one of the wonders of the world and al Raschid ruled his kingdom with wisdom and compassion. Under his rule the city flourished and prospered.

This man is one of the many citizens who attended Haroun al Raschid’s court.

He appears in Sandman # 50, on page 5, in panel 2.

This is a fantastic portrait. In the published comic we simply see the back of his hat standing before Haroun al Raschid in a crowd of citizens. Anna took the very minimal view of the character and brought him to life, imagining him into existence. I love her design for this character…everything from the multiple earrings to his pointed goutee. This is a wonderful portrait of a very obscure character.
