First off, fair warning - I'm getting my second Moderna shot today (well, I'll have already gotten it by the time this actually goes up) and the next page is going to be pretty intensive, so there miiiight be filler on Monday if complications arise. It should be fine, but just a heads-up in case it becomes an issue.

So yeah, Hazel's buff!

Think this could've been easy to miss but there've been a number of attempts to foreshadow that Hazel's been bulking up. For one thing, there's the fact that ever since the Ivy fight back in chapter 13, we haven't seen him shirtless and he's almost entirely been wearing jackets and heavy clothing, and we've been generally trying to adjust him to be drawn looking slightly more beefy as time has gone along.

There were also these bits -

Hazel had needles in his room and mentioned spending a lot of money lately.

Alex mentioning that Hazel has more muscle on him than it looks like.

Guess the last time Mercy laid him out in one punch really got to him, probably compounded by how dismissive everyone was of him when he fought Ivy League. We'll see if he's polished up that glass jaw a bit, eh?

Yeaaah, THIS was yet another page we were looking forward to. ^^ Just dig how Hazel is turning the tables on one thing after another. Just every page escalates the degree of "Oh, shit!" on what he's doing. Not only is he outsmarting everyone but he's ready to kick ass directly too.

Because that's what he's preparing to do. It's not enough to muscle Mercy out of the gang. It's not enough stab him in the back. It's not enough to gloat in front of his face that he's been fucking his girlfriend. He wants to PERSONALLY kick this guy's ass. Hazel fucking HATES this asshole and wants him to suffer in every imaginable way. The next page is probably going to have him playing a video showing that he dug up Mercy's parents and had sex with them.

I felt a bit awkward about the show of it though; I wanted to show needle marks on his arm once we saw him shirtless to help sell that he's doping, but honestly it's not necessary since he's already SAID he'd doping up.

OH! Also there's some experiments with how we shade being shown off in this page. If you're on our Discord you've seen the progress but if not, thoughts?

The shading looks fine to me, and I already got my second vaccine dose so I understand if you don't feel up to doing anything for a little while.
