Right about now I'd be releasing the 5th installment of the Stiel Maiden comic, which would have been chock full of action, emotional moments and violence. This was the volume where I had intended to let Herrig off his leash and showcase why his callsign is "Beast".
But then real life happened. That being the mass murder in Buffalo, NY...just 2 hours from where I live here in The Bronx.
Herrig's 1st assault was going to be akin to the infamous mission in Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 called "No Russian", where innocent civilians were gunned down in an act of war. 75% of Vol. 5 would revolve around Herrig's act of barbarism, and the world's reaction to it. But in light of recent events I feel it's in extremely poor taste to release Vol. 5 as planned, so I've made the decision to scrap the original idea, and make it a difference scenario. Obviously, that means all of the content I'd prepared is unusable...so Vol. 5's release is being pushed back as I put together an alternate idea.
