Robert’s Workmate # 9 (illustrated by Max Rugers)

While Brant and Charlene are trapped in Worlds’ End, they hear stories told throughout the night as they wait for the storm to pass.

Mr. Gaheris tells a story about a man named Robert who lived in a large city that he loved very much. He worked in the city center, at a desk in a room filled with dozens of men and women who also sat at their desks doing a job similar to his.

This man is one of Robert’s workmates.

He appears in Sandman # 51 on page 12, in panel 1.

I love this portrait from Max. I really like that this character is drawn is mostly subdued grays and I like that his face is turned downward as if he’s looking at some papers on his desk. The portrait feels completely calming and is beautifully drawn.
