I can't believe that only 1/4 of this thread actually discusses Endling's art and Red's expressions, and the other 3/4 is pointless banter and bickering.

Can't we talk about the picture?


I think the text with Triumphant suggests that when Red gets out, she's going to have company and may take some sort of leadership role. The text with Despondent/Pouty may support this.

Pinoccio may be a part of that group. People call him "Pino" for short, and Red may see him as enough of a friend to use such a nickname -- or else she finds his full name too much of a mouthful, and doesn't respect him enough to use it. Pinoccio can also take his eyeballs out, which makes sense for a wooden puppet.

Red likes birds, and they make her happy. She may also like cider, and that seems to make her a little too "happy."

Red may not have previously met Gretel, as she's surprised by the giant fork. But I guess I shouldn't be surprised if Red has never met any of the other inmates. Dr. Crooked might very well be keeping her in solitary confinement.

There is at least one girl among the inmates that annoys Red. Seeing as how Rosie and Posie (and possibly Little Miss Muffet) are more likely to seen as dangerous threats than mere annoyances, I think I can safely scratch them off as possibilities. Either she finds Goldilocks too sweet, or Gretel too aggressive. Given that I don't think Red wants to be a psychotic, angry killer, I don't think she would find kindness as annoying as arrogance.

...Gretel just strikes me as the kind of girl who demands her own way and is entirely convinced she deserves it.

Most of all, with this picture it seems that despite what she's gone through recently, Red may still capable of a wide variety of emotions. Otherwise, I doubt many of those panels would be so expressive.

Really amazing. It happens though, and for the most part nobody minds except the occasional person who posies in. We can always try to switch back to the main topic if you'd like, though.

Also the ninja mafia is called the Yakuza. IF YOU WERE A REAL NINJA YOU WOULD KNOW THAT.

Red has met the other inmates (or will in the story) I remember seeing a picture somewhere of her and Tom Thumb having an epic argument (or a fight, I don't really remember), which suggests that Red may take some kind of leadership role in the asylum and like lead them all to some goal, or she might have to fight them all on her way out or something. Or both, it's difficult to speculate at this point. Well I also haven't read the comic in like a year. Maybe I should go back over it....

Also, Endling at some point did say something like the crazy-kill-everybody Red in the beginning isn't quite the same as the Red that we're gonna see later in the story, if memory serves (and it usually does).

....As anybody noticed there's a Google Adsense Bot lurking around the forum all the time?

I've seen that picture of Red interacting with Tom, but that could very well happen after the prisonbreak. Given the natural stone that Tom is planting his foot on, being out in the wilderness seems the case.

Remember, the Wolf is out of control and is causing trouble that the Asylum doesn't want people to know about. Red is just one of a couple of survivors taken in to keep things quiet. Though she may be a particular favorite of the Wolf, and thus of Dr. Crooked.

But the point is that Red's incarceration, and use as a guinea pig, is probably a tightly guarded secret, so she's being kept in a more secure and private part of the facility.

Whereas characters like Goldilocks are safe enough to house in those plexiglass wall rooms, and guys like Pinnocchio are allowed to wander around.

Seeing as how Goldilocks is being treated as though she might eventually be discharged from the Asylum normally, I doubt that Dr. Crooked would allow the two to meet and get to know each other, as Red would tell Goldi why she's there, and Goldi would tell people on the outside.

I kinda doubt that Crooked is just gonna let Goldi out of the asylum, though he'd definitely lead her on about it. They're probably doing stuff to Goldi that the people who came to the asylum (and probably Goldi herself) aren't aware of. Then again I might just be crazy.

I agree, though, Red is probably more of a secret, along with some of the other more violent inmates. They probably just say "Oh, that one is too....delicate at the moment for you to see them..." But they're probably up to some other grand scheme the investors know nothing about. BUT THEY NEEDED THE MONIES. So they probably wouldn't be denying Red's existance though they'd definitely be denying the stuff they're up to in there, and this probably goes for most of the inmates. Heck, most of the staff probably don't even know about it.
