Today in Comics History: Emperor Norton has fallen and he can't get up


Panels from The Sandman (1989 series) #31 (October 1991), script by Neil Gaiman, pencils and inks by Shawn McManus, colors by Daniel Vozzo, letters by Todd Klein

I think that the following page-and-a-bit is my favorite single scene of them all from Neil Gaiman's Sandman.



Where have you gone, Emperor Norton?
Our nation turns its lonely eyes to you.
