Newspaper Salesman (illustrated by Max Ruger)

One evening, Richard Madoc, a celebrated author, was confronted by Dream who demanded the release of his prisoner, Calliope. When Madoc refused, his life began to spiral out of control.

On his way to a party, Richard stopped by a newspaper stand to buy a Time Out and Standard. The newspaper salesman recognized him from the television.

The first ideas began crashing through his mind as he attempted to buy the paper.

This is the newspaper salesman who witnessed Richard Madoc’s first moments of his severe inundation of ideas.

He appears in Sandman # 17, on page 19, in panel 1.

This is a great portrait from Max. I love the detailed line work on this character’s face. It adds a significant amount of realism to the character. I also really like that Max used torn up newspapers for the background. It’s a nice addition that works incredibly well with this character.
