Was really weird going back to Starchild's second costume. I think I like the current one easily the most of the ones thus far. Also tried to make Hazel's hair look more unkempt before the cut; make it look like the haircut was more distinct. As Alex pointed out, the guy's obviously trying to re-invent himself.

Also, meant to mention last time, but Verbren and Hazel came out a lot more... bro-mancy than I was expecting. When I did the lineart honestly thought they kinda looked like a couple.

For a good while now I've been kind of wanting to go into the contrast with Hazel's characterization a bit and explore that further. He's supposed to be kind of a hard guy to read - we've seen him happily offering to fix his mom's steps and we've seen him giddily beating down on Ivy while basically maniacally gloating about it. I really wanted to have the contrast brought up a little bit more in story - much like how Mercy brought it up in the last chapter - and to in particular study how he and Alex have kind of had wildly different interactions in their two run-ins prior to this.

To that end I do quite like getting to just have a little bit of quick back and forth between the two of them here, as well as getting to show Hazel and Verbren as a pair a little bit more. Like Adam said kind of been coming out more bromantic than was really intended, but either way I do still kind of like getting to do a little bit to show them having kind of become friends in the aftermath of what went down in the previous chapter and I do definitely intend to explore that whole matter further.

Admittedly I'm not entirely sure when Hazel is next going to turn up. It won't be a huge wait or anything, he's not going to vanish for 200 pages or something, but he's most likely not going to be in the next couple of chapters. Those'll likely both be much shorter than the last few have been though, so there is that.

For the record I do feel kind of guilty about the fact this is the first time in three chapters we're seeing Starchild, it's only in one panel, and it's not even the current costume. If it does help any though I will go ahead and say now that Alex is in full Starchild mode for the next chapter and does get a good length fight scene in it, so hope that's some consolation.

Also personally while Adam prefers the current costume I actually kind of prefer the second version. The second one was always intended to be very short-lived by having O'Hara take it, the abrupt drop wasn't due to dissatisfaction with the design or anything. I dunno, thoughts?

Very, very interesting, wonder what's going to happen next.
