After opening the crate, he takes particular interest in a dog puppet (which he named Reverend Hound, and also decided to make Sheriff), a king puppet, and a grandmother puppet.
These puppets appear to give him something to do and keep him company for a while, until he finds a Vault Boy puppet in the crate that he'd missed earlier. This puppet seems to have a mind of its own and to speak directly to the Vault 77 Dweller, which the other puppets do not; it is never specified if it truly does possess its own (evil) consciousness, or if this is just a symptom of the Dweller's further descent into insanity. One night, the king puppet is found "dead"; when the Vault 77 Dweller confronts the most likely suspect, the Vault Boy puppet tells him that in fact they did it together and must flee before Reverend Hound comes for them.
The Dweller opens the Vault door, only to find an gigantic Radscorpion holding up a car in each claw. The Dweller decides they should sleep on the plan. Later, he somehow manages to leave the Vault, befriending a giant ant which he takes as a mount.
Some time after sharing a campfire meal with an unnamed but civil Ghoul (possibly from Necropolis, as he also wears the tatters of a Vault Suit and hints he originally came from a Vault), he is captured by Slavers who are uncertain whether to make him a slave or just eat him. The Dweller tries to warn them not to hang around him as his puppet is an insane killer. Later that night, the threat becomes a reality as the slaver home camp is razed, with the Vault 77 Dweller standing amid the carnage after wards, both he and the puppet covered in blood.
The comic ends with a conclusion that Vault 77 didn't turn out so good but reminds the reader that "the Vaults were never meant to save anyone."

List of known puppets from the crate and the names given to them by the Vault 77 Dweller:
- The King
- Reverend Hound
- Vault Boy
A Vault 77 Jumpsuit can be found in Fallout 3, alongside an audio recording of an obviously worried slaver, saying how it scares the others and it should be burnt, and that 'he' may be back for it. The jumpsuit appropriately boosts one's melee and unarmed skills (given that these were the Puppet Man's ways of murdering). However, despite this suggesting that Vault 77 can be found somewhere in the Capital Wasteland, it is not in any current version of the game. It is unlikely that Vault 77 is very near the Capital Wasteland, being that it is not mentioned on the Vault-Tec Computer in the Citadel and it does not appear on the Citadel's map of Vaults.
