Dead Woman # 14 (illustrated by Anna Hybsier)

In The Sandman Special # 1, Orpheus journeys to the Underworld to rescue his recently deceased wife.

As he stands before Lord Hades and Queen Persephone he sings a song of sadness and of love, which causes the Dead to cry.

This Dead Woman is one of the many dead men in the Underworld.

He appears in The Song Of Orpheus, on page 33, in panel 1. She is on the left of the panel.

Anna’s use of gray and blue have a very dramatic effect on this portrait. The two colors both give a sense of coldness to the portrait, which is not only accurate to the comic, but pretty effective when it comes to representing the dead residents of the Underworld. I really like this portrait.
