This is a tricky one to comment on; sort of hits a weird balance of largely speaking for itself while also raising a lot of questions. Sort of a very, "Just speaks for itself," page I guess.

We went through more back and forth than usual on the layout for this one; as originally outlined Adam had it very different from how I was picturing it, and a later revision still didn't quite line up right so I had to do my own reference image for it. Always feel kind of weird about when it comes to that; I do generally prefer seeing things come out how I'm envisioning them, is the whole point of the switch we made to having Adam send me outlines of the pages before drawing them, but any time I give more substantive instructions or take particular issue with something it does kind of feel like I'm being overly nitpicky. Maybe it's just me, I dunno.

Either way, tough one for me to comment on but do hope that everyone enjoys. As much as you can enjoy seeing a man get his leg bashed with a tire iron.

Heheh... Yeaaaah, this is another moment we were waiting to show off.

What I love about this moment is that it's both a twist and NOT a twist. Hazel and Mercy hating each other is nothing new; they've had fights and openly admitted how much they fucking loathe each other. But at the same time, Hazel being this much of a lunatic to suddenly just try and beat Mercy with a tire iron elevates it way past professional rivalry.

At the same time, I guess Hazel doens't want the guy DEAD. If he did he could've taken a gun or at least a knife out of his coat. He seems to be more interested in crippling or permanently injuring him than killing him.

Like Martin said, this went through some renditions just because we wanted to make it clear that this would fucking HURT. Most pain as possible.
