Man # 130 (illustrated by Max Rugers)

In November 1930, Ruthven Sykes, the second in command of the Order Of Ancient Mysteries and Ethel Cripps, the mistress of Roderick Burgess, run away together. They take a ship to America to start a life together outside of the watchful eye of the Magus.

This man is standing at the counter in the ship station, probably buying passage to America along with Sykes and his mistress.

He appears in Sandman # 1 on page 16 in panel 2.

This is a fantastic portrait from Max. This man has a very distinctive feel that he is from the 1930’s and hoping to find a better life in America. There is a sadness in his eyes that I am impressed with. Max definitely captured some real emotions in this portrait!

Here is Man # 130…
