Warm up: Vertigo's Death
Well, you know someone was going to pick this one.
Neil Gaiman's Sandman was (and is) an incredible important comic to me. It was one of a handful of comics that I read in the 90's, a time when I felt that a lot of what was being published left me cold. That being said, even the first few issues of Sandman didn't really grab me. It wasn't until issue #7, "The Sound of Her Wings", which was the first appearance of Dream's older sister Death, that I was really hooked. My little drawing pays tribute to that story's pigeon-feeding centerpiece, with Death contemplating one of her flying friends. Hope you enjoy!
