Red is one of my alltime favorite Wetworks characters and one of the characters Mike insisted on writing. Red use to be a flambouyant character being the right hand to the Blood Queen. Now she is a sort of down trodden figure. A shadow of what she was in the past. So she wears clothes that show a semblance of what she was tho' nowhere near as flashy and bold as what she would have worn when she still was a Royal bodygaurd. Her hair is either pulled up and trapped or down covering her face. Mike prefers the hair up and I like it down.

Red was one of my favorites as well, I always liked the way she kept the queen in line.

Yes, and it begs the question how was she able to keep the Queen (the most arrogant person ever to have breathe air) in line. What was their real relationship? And more importantly for Red, how come she wasn't able to save her Queen, and why is she really working for the man who killed her beloved Queen? Let us explore this as the issues unfold...

Oh yes indeed...

Myself and also other people across messageboards are wondering id Red isn't an albino vampire anymore?!

Care to shed a light on it Whilce?

Whilce Portacio said...

Rafa,

She is everthing that she was back then. Before I can say more...

What exactly are they saying on the boards? and why do they think she is not albino anymore.

Rafa said...

Well, that her skincolor now is like "pink-human".
In the original Wetworks series Chiodo used to color her pale/white.

Rafa,

Hey, sorry been doing Batman...anyways, you win the big prize...you are right in some panels she is not colored right. That's not Wendy's fault, it's purely mine. Having done this issue so long ago I probably told myself back then to remind Wendy that Red is albino but forgot three months ago when she colored this issue.

So yes, that is a technical error, or if you want to squeeze out of me a PR answer the drugs Red is hooked on is causing an artificial inducement of melanomine into her skin...

So, for being the first to bring this up please e-mail my "bosing" at portacio@comcast.com tell her what happened and what's your favorite character (any character at all) and we'll send you out a 9X12 convention marker sketch for your troubles...oh give her your address too so we could mail it to you...

WOW Whilce.
thank you VERY MUCH. I'm forever grateful.

I'll have to think about the character though!
Tough call!!
Does it have to be a WetWorks character or a comicbook character?
