Golden-Age Sandman By FishyFins

I have a great love for pulp stories and the characters that inhabit them. The Shadow, Doc Savage, Nick Carter, The Avenger, and The Spider to name just a few. So it should come as no surprise that I have an absolute devotion to DC Comic’s Golden-Age crime fighter, The Sandman. I particularly fell in love with the the Vertigo 70 issue run of the Sandman Mystery Theatre, written by Matt Wagner and Steven T. Seagle, with the first story arc being illustrated by the absolutely fantastic Guy Davis.

It should also come as no surprise that on more than one Halloween I donned a similar gas mask and clothing, but FishyFins or Adam Bakes as he is also know has done a far better job than I ever could have. Check out his outfit that he posted over on deviantART!
