Dead Man # 236 (illustrated by Max Rugers)

Orpheus went into the depths of the Underworld to rescue Eurydice. As he approached the throne room of Hades and Persephone he encounters a large gathering of the dead.

To implore the rulers of the Underworld to release his deceased wife, Orpheus sang a song about love and loss. This song caused the dead to weep.

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

He appears in The Song Of Orpheus, on page 33, in panel 3.

This is an amazing portrait from Max. I really like his heavy use of blacks and deep reds in this portrait to convey a sense of despair. This is a wonderful portrait with a lot of emotion.
