Comment

Parmi l'ensemble de dessinateurs ayant œuvré sur Sandman, certains ont été associés à jamais à cette saga (Kieth, Dringenberg, Hempel, Zulli, McManus...). D'autres ont brièvement travaillé sur quelques issues mais ils ont laissé une empreinte très forte (Vess, Muth, Russell...). C. Bachalo, dont la carrière exemplaire s'est poursuivie avec succès, réalisait ici son premier travail professionnel. Le résultat est remarquable. Associé à l'encreur Malcom Jones III (malheureusement décédé), il illustre la rencontre entre les "2 Sandman" dans un épisode célèbre où Gaiman multiplie les références et les clins d'œil sur le thème du rêve (Little Nemo in Slumberland notamment).

About Chris Bachalo

Chris Bachalo (born August 23, 1965) is an Canadian comic book illustrator known for his quirky, cartoon-like style. He became well known for stints on DC Comics’ Shade, the Changing Man and Neil Gaiman's two Death series. Chris has also illustrated several of Marvel Comics’ X-Men-related series, including Generation X (which he co-created), X-Men vol 2, Uncanny X-Men, and Ultimate X-Men. Beginning in April, 2000 Chris illustrated his creator-owned series Steampunk. Bachalo was born in Canada but was raised in Southern California. He has told interviewers that, as a child, he wanted to be a carpenter until he discovered he was allergic to dust. He attended the California State University at Long Beach, where he majored in graphic art and illustrated a few underground comics.
