Nightmare # 2 (illustrated by Kai Martin)

When Dream confronts John Dee in order to reclaim his stolen ruby he is forced to take his battle into the realm of dreams.

John Dee encounters a group of Soothsayers who warn him to “Beware the Ideas Of March” and “Beware the Brides Of Frankenstein.” Every nightmare he encounters twists into a nightmare wearing the helmet of the dream king.

This is one of those Nightmares he encounters as he tries to tear the Dreaming apart in order to find Morpheus.

This Nightmare appears in Sandman # 7, on page 13.

This is a fantastic portrait from Kai. The amount of detail put into his helmet and cloak is exceptional. The highly detailed line work makes the mask feel very organic. I also really like the deep blacks. The darkness really helps create the dream-like atmosphere of this character.
