Gender: other
Fave comic: The last one.

The comic is now available here

This is a part of Sherry's story, but like the previous ones (The Hotel, The Society) it is not all about Sherry. Aiko Yariman, a character we have seen in Slave Fair Year 2 and The Stables, is reintroduced here. Holly Venger (from The Hotel) is also featured.

This story took too long to finish, partly because of my busy schedule. It was a very old project of mine, but I made a a lot of big changes to the plot because of the recent developments in the general story arc. A few sex scenes I had to cut, and I'm not really happy about it. But no worries, they will be added to sequels.

The Office in question is Paul Stevenson's, it is not Peter's fledgling little company. So, Melanie fans don't get your hopes up. Maggie is not in there either. (They will be featured in another comic tentatively called "The Shop". The plot for that one is ready, but no other development yet.)

I have included a few easter eggs and some inside jokes forumfolk would get, I hope you enjoy them...

Why does Sherry keep getting all these comics for her arc? Does Maggie get any more (outside BG and 'The Shop') for her arc or is Sherry destined to have the most appearances?

Your not the only one hoping that Doctor! Unfortunately only time will tell.

Has anybody heard of why the delay in release? Are they waiting until June to release it or has E included something they feel the need to seek legal advise over?

A superb comic, with intrigue, action, breathtaking artwork, hot sex and violence.

I find I'm genuinely intrigued by the story of Aiko and her sisters, and the mystery man at the end. I thought he was too paunchy to be Peter, though he seems the likeliest suspect.

The office came alive for me, it was so detailed and so methodical. On the whole, the story felt a lot more integrated than some of E's past expansions, like The Hotel, where the story seemed to just stop for a few pages at a time and give us a tour that was nearly unrelated to the narrative. That wasn't this. A strong, coherent storyline drove every bit of the action, and the office life is introduced as part of that action, rather than exposition or info-dump. Very strong storytelling there.

I continue to find frustration in one aspect of Erenisch's storytelling: the payoffs often seem insufficient compared to the setups. Twice with Anna, now with Holly, all the story's tensions rise toward the climax, and the climax resolves the story's questions, but then the story cuts away from the climax too soon, leaving those tensions unresolved. (I'm a big fan of Aristotle's Poetics and Gustav Freytag's observations on dramatic structure).

Also, and this might just be personal, the scenes with Steve dominating Anna, the Russian mobster dominating Anna, and the co-workers beating up Holly, just aren't long enough for me to, um, climax. So it's frustrating on a storytelling level, wanting more emotional closure, and frustrating on a pornographic level, in that the hottest moments cut off before I can do anything with that heat. Another page or two, in each of these events, would have had me seeing stars.

I loved Holly Venger's hard-assed portrayal here. She's growing into one of the most complex, compelling characters in this series, and I hope to see her undergo a great deal more sexual abuse, humiliations, and beatings in the future.

I also loved how Holly humiliated Sherry and how Sherry got her back. Beautiful revenge. Stunning portrayal of inter-female power dynamics, which often go unperceived by men; passes the Bechdel test with flying colors!

Sherry's new dress, exposing her more as she gets more turned on? Brilliant. Though I'm not a fan of lesbian scenes, I'd make an exception to watch Sherry put the world-weary, powerful ex-slavecop on her knees, her freewoman's mouth forced to lick a slavegirl's cunt. (I DID notice that Paul's rule specifies that no MALE employees can sexually abuse Holly. And though Holly outranks Sherry, Sherry is in charge of disciplining ALL "femployees," so...

And I'm looking forward to Paul's inheritance. Good times ahead!


Has anyone else had a chance to read it? What did you think?

imo Peter turning out to be the "criminal" would be a bad plot angle

why would Peter who in The Bottom was so focused on not breaking the law, would go into kidnapping 2 girls and resort to blackmail and subterfuge in company espionage?

it just does not fit his character even with his "girl hunting" episode in BG3

it has to be a new character - may perhaps the one that r@ped and tied up Anna as Steve found her in Karma

i agree with you someoneelse that the story overall in The Office was very intergral

every scene had a purpose that fit into the entire story

and when you thought Aiko's story was over... bam... the end which gives a different perspective on her first few screens

as for the payoffs being insufficient, i agree somewhat but let us face it - E can't make a comic 100 pages long in a single setting

the artist is rather limited that he (or she) has to tell a specific plotted story within a certain page frame

I really liked it! :twisted:

The power dynamics between Holly and Sherry were wonderful to behold. I just knew Holly wouldn't let Sherry keep acting like a spoiled brat but I had no idea that Sherry would be able to get her own back so quickly and thoroughly.

Although I did wonder about Holly covering her blue choker as soon as she was telling Aiko about only the free-women being able to hide their necks.

But I'm more intrigued by 'Trudy' and Paul's relationship. WHAT THE FUCK is going on there!? Why is the girl swapped out every year and is she supposed to resemble a young Carol or what? It seems very weird and I'm not sure if that's a healthy relationship, even for a fucked up society that enslaves women...


(a named cameo was awesome; I said there would be something in this comic that I liked...)


(but, hey, I didn't falsely claim to spend four years in doctor school to be called 'Mr.') :roll: :mrgreen:

Been lurking round this forum an awful long time, and I've been feeling more and more that I ought to speak up a bit! Reading this comic finally spurred me to do so - and what a fantastic installment in the 'Sherry arc', as well as the wider 'Birthday Gift' saga, it is!

Main thoughts:

As to what's going on with Trudy, I have no idea, but it's intriguing. I don't know whether this was on purpose but E's managed to instil in me the same vague sense of familiarity with her - without being able to put my finger on it - that Sherry herself experiences in-story. Whether or not I'm missing an obvious reference somewhere I don't know, but in any case we can be sure this is far from the last we'll see of this dynamic. Even in this crazy world that E's created for his works, the dynamic between Trudy and Paul is a particularly strange one.

Aiko as a character grew on me throughout the comic, starting out as being slightly 'meh' and ending up as yet another fascinating part of the ever widening Birthday Gift story arc. The more characters that are drawn into it the more complex and juicy it gets. On balance I think it *wasn't* Peter we saw in the 'extra scene' with Aiko, but that's a very tentative stance - it could well have been him. Either case is fascinating - if it isn't Peter, who is it and why are they so interested in the inner workings of Paul's company, and if it is him, why has he gotten so single-minded to the extent of active lawbreaking and commercial espionage - what does he hope to achieve? Looking forward to ultimately finding this all out.

Sherry meanwhile was as compelling, feisty and delicious as ever in this comic. We learn yet more about her character. In a funny way she seems to have decided to actively use her inner conflicting thoughts towards Paul as a direct weapon against him, which is very devious. I also find it interesting that a) she's bold enough to tell Paul exactly what she's going to do to him, and b) Paul is relaxed enough to take this as a fun challenge rather than a threatening one. For someone so level-headed as he is, Sherry seems to be his Achilles' heel, at least in part - the other part being his relationship with Carol. Again, this is all spectacularly complicated - which of those two, Sherry or Carol, is he ultimately more interested in? This whole thing seems to me to stand extremely well as a deliciously oddball parody of exactly the sort of convoluted relationships and mindsets people contort themselves into in the real world - with the only major difference being that the women involved are all enslaved and must maintain this facade of subservience, however thin it is in the case of those two! XD

Of course, we saw just how formidable Sherry is in the way she struck back at Holly Venger - I enjoyed seeing Sherry brought low a bit, that was fun to watch, but of course it was in the back of my mind that she wasn't ever going to stand for that! Paul really has got his hands full and in a funny way he seems to realise it, even revel in it.

Finally, exactly how is Paul going to handle the death of Sherry's father? No doubt he is brimming with Machiavellian delight at the thought of a) inheriting the Potts' business assets and b) inheriting Sherry's sister and mother. How is he going to break the news to Sherry, though? Is he going to be harsh and use it to try to break her spirit (unlikely in my view since he seems to rather enjoy her spirit, as we now see XD) or is he going to be a bit more gentle with it (also seems unlikely, he's not the caring type). How will Sherry take it - how much did she care about her father at the point immediately before his death? Did she ever come to believe that her father was screwing her sister, and did this mean that she came to resent him, or did she remain in denial about it? She seems more concerned about her mother and sister - how distraught or otherwise will she be at this news? Might she even be happy in some way that her mother and sister are coming under Paul's control? Will Paul use Sherry's sister and mother as leverage to get Sherry further under his thumb? Will he, indeed, enslave them or keep them free and use the threat of enslavement as said leverage? So MANY delicious questions!


Thanks once again E for an amazing comic that was at once extremely hot and very intriguing indeed. I cannot *wait* for the next installment in the Birthday Gift arc, in whatever form that may take. Of course, I await any of E's comics with huge anticipation, and you can bet I'll be more vocal about that in future! =D

Why a new character and not an old one? Such as Jason Mars or Ray from the very first Erenisch Comics?

I totally agree. This was a very good 'twist' ending.

This is a fact of life unfortunately for us. But then E is making progress on the next release so we should get our next fix sooner!

So great to finally get my mitts on this after such a long wait for Dof to put it up. Great stuff!! Really enjoyed this :D

So many things I loved:
Loved the naked taxi driver 8-)
I like the irony of the free women getting fucked more often than the slavegirls in the office ;)
Holly Venger is such a brilliant character. I love the way the comic finessed her "punishment". I like that she would rise in the organisation. I like that she would be getting a promotion. I really feared she was going to be deceived so what was nice was that we got to see her get abused but her colleagues still didn't get to fuck her and her promotion was still going ahead
Really cool little details like the manual for femployees. Love the "no underwear" rule!!! should be widely adopted :)
the fakeout ending!!! that was brilliant. In terms of it being a bonus, but also the twist in the story
Really intrigued by the replaceable virgin character, her level of devotion and ability to withstand abuse. I don't know that we really got the whole story about her, what it's all about and what happens to her when her year is up. :?: :?: May have to re-read her scene again...

I think that a lot about Trixie will be revealed later (or is it I hope?) as it seems her character has not been fully developed yet.

I love the part where: Paul says Sherry is almost like his daughter! He has a habit of sitting girls on his knees and actually talking to them!

spoilers as to what I think Erenisch is trying to show with the Paul + Trudy scene

i think the whole Paul + Trudy dynamic is a sorta misogynistic fantasy Paul has/had for Carol

remember - Carol was Paul's wanton high school crush and ends up having to settle for Molly when Carol gets engaged to Patrick

while Paul had a sexual relationship with Molly throughout their later high school years, as far as I know, he never got the chance to "bone" Carol - and from Paul's twisted POV he probably sees it as Carol "blue balling" him

now re-read Trudy's dialogue in The Office

outside the obvious physical "alterations" - she's basically living out some fantasy-like dialogue that Paul drums into various "19 year old Carol's" saying she has to be punished over and over for not choosing and admiring him

and Trudy is asking to be taken by Paul who only seems to want to punish her - so in this sense, he gets to "blue ball" her

E continues to amaze and demonstrate that pornographic comics truly can be an art form. Interesting characters and emotional involvement actually making stories much MORE arousing when done right. Every time I sit down to write one of my insanely long reviews I have to remind myself about the pitiful state of rest of the industry. I approach these stories with the same critical eye that I would apply to an episode of Breaking Bad of Game of Thrones. In fact I think the entire E verse feels more like a very well written epic TV show than it does like the porn most people are used to.

This entire series is an amazing accomplishment. E is so far ahead of the rest of the industry that no one else is even close. Hopefully the E-verse will eventually get the recognition it deserves and E will have the same giant cult-like following that the Gor novels enjoy in the kink community. It’s a tragedy that everyone know what “50 Shades of Gray” is, it should be Erenisch. Erenisch is the true art form of bdsm. I have practically begged E to market these comics directly to Amazon kindle. I think there is a real market for them.

…having said all that, I never let E get off too easy. So I am going to proceede with an in depth analysis of the Office.
SPOILERS FOLLOW, YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.


Starting with the broad themes.

THE COMPLEX STUFF
E continues to develop Sherry and Paul’s relationship brilliantly. I love Sherry’s “master plan” she has accepted that he can dominate her body and she has accepted that she wants him and his abuse physically. But her “revenge” is to make him love her and to refuse to ever love him in return. Playing on exactly what we’ve been discussing in the forum. This is not so far fetched. One partner in a relationship is a slave to lust but the other actually loves them. So who is really in control and who is really being tortured? I have actually been in situations quite similar to this. This insight into the emotions underneath the fucking is a perfect of example of what makes E so great. This subtle dynamic can be a trap leading to hate-fueled sex and loneliness. I actually started to feel a little sorry for Paul. Notice that E very wisely never shows us any thought bubbles for Paul. We are never entirely sure what he is thinking. That’s a very smart move in terms of story-telling.

I also like that the Sherry and Paul relationship continues to contrast the Peter-Maggie Relationship. Maggie’s story is defined by love, Sherrie’s story is defined by hate. Sherry is using love as a weapon (or rather she is trying to, we won’t know if it works until later). Yet both relationships are punctuated by huge amounts of violence, making even the "sweetie" relationship morally questionable at best. (holy shit, that just made me appreciate Maggie's name even more. Everything has layers in the E-verse!)

If I had to criticize this part of the story I would say that it seems a little odd that Sherry would come up with such a devious plan. Its true that she has been gradually growing in sexual awareness, but she only just accepted her nature as a slutty sadomasochiist really. It was only in the Society that she admitted she liked all the things Paul did to her. How has she already progressed to the level where she has a plan like this? It feels like we missed a step or 2. Like this is the way Sherry would be after few more episodes, after a little more experience.

I would like to see a flashback set between LoveLust and the Office that would explain how Sherry came up with this plan. Maybe she got the idea after seeing Paul interact with Molly and Carol. Maybe Molly could even suggest it, Molly helping boast Sherry in the hope of getting rid of Carol. After all, when last we saw Sherry her stock was way down because of Carol’s sudden ascendance. Seeing Sherry so confident in her role after that doesn’t quite fit. I would like to see maybe even the night after LoveLust with Carol and Sherry and Paul all in the bedroom. Something to bridge the gap.

…Maybe I will just write that myself as a short story. This sounds like a great scene.

…again its AMAZING I can even examine character development at this level! We know these characters so well that it really does feel like we are talking about Game of Thrones or something. No other porn does this.

Sherry had a real character defining moment imo, when she realized she was safe from sexual assault for the first time in her life. What did she do? That very second, without missing a beat, what did she do? Why she started waving her ass around trying to tease the men who couldn’t have her! That kinda gave me perspective on how much power real life women have in real life America. It must feel great to be able to flaunt that kind of sexual power whenever you want. As a man, I don’t get to experience that.

Which brings me to E breaking the 4th wall and saying guys would be better off masturbating to internet porn. I actually did not like that. I am surrounded every second of every day by powerful women in a society that gives them power. I come to these fantasy worlds to escape from the real world for a brief, brief respite. I don’t want the real world intruding on my fun. I don’t need to be reminded that I’m watching porn while I’m watching porn. I don’t want to masturbate to the thought of myself masturbating. I hope future comics don’t so directly break up the fantasy for the audience. That’s my opinion.

Similarly E introduced a few females who discuss the idea that men are actually slaves to their desire. This is… maybe a little bit of a buzz kill but that one I approve of to some extent. It adds critical tension. The battle of wills between man and woman is more interesting if the woman seems to have some chance of winning.

There are SOOOOO many great details in this comic. Far too many to list. I love E’s creative use of the panel shapes for instance. Very mature page design. E’s use of panel shape is really impressive, it shows a professional respect for this as a real art form.

Trudy was am AMAZING character. E very wisely built mystery around who Trudy used to be but never tells us. Trudy was actually my favorite part of the story. She raises a lot of interesting philosophical questions. Does she really love Paul? Sherry is sure (as was our forum) that no one really loves Paul, but if Trudy does that blows that theory up. But is utterly brainwashing someone to the point where there is no trace of their old self the same thing as love? Is it?

wow

just wow.

This porn we are reading ,just asked that question. And you know what? It was HOT! Most people would not be able to write a story that was sexy and deep at the same time. But E does it. E does it all the time. ☺

In a perfect dark fantasy world, the answer to the question would be “yes damn it!” Love gets put on a pedestal so much, lets have a story where it turns out torturing a brainwashing someone makes you live happily ever after. ☺ We have interpreted the Peter/Maggie vs Paul/Sherry thing as a completion, like “which one is really happy?” but you know what? Maybe they are BOTH happy. Different strokes for different folks.

The other question posed by Trudy is to wonder is this Sherry’s future? Or Carol’s? Will some of characters end up as broken as her? And is she really as broken as she claims? Like Paul, we never get to see any of Trudy’s thought bubbles, she remains a mystery. I hope that over the next few issues we get to learn a little more about her mysterious past.

The other mystery is does this truly make Paul happy? That’s actually the big question about Paul in general. Is he happy? Is he REALLY happy? He seems to have everything, he insists he’s happy. But we never get to see his thoughts. We are never sure if he means the things he says. Somehow I’d rather be Peter than him.

Interesting note: Trudy looks a lot like the young Carol (and therefore also like Maggie). Did Paul have her modified at the clinic to fulfill his youthful desire for Carol? Does he do that with all the other Trudys? Maybe he has had 20 young blondes who look as much like Carol as possible, 1 in each year. Carol was once vain, is he punishing her by proxy for her vanity when she was 18 year old? Hmmm…

This review could go on forever and I feel like I’ve barely scratched the surface!


LIGHTENING ROUND: The Good

I loved the “hidden scene” at the end. Like a post-credits teaser in a movie. Way to experiment with the form E! Very clever!

Loved the see-thru dress and Sherry’s thought bubbles about she felt more naked than she’d ever been because it bares her mind. I further loved that we get to see her aroused both by being punished by Holly and later by punishing Holly. Sherry is a classic sadomasochist, she gets wet for dishing it out and taking it.

Loved the related theme in this how clothes can make a woman more naked than truly being naked, themes are great and this one weaved in and out of the story several times.

Loved the cab drivers philosophical musing about the clothes only giving the illusion of freedom.

Loved the De-Motivational posters in the background of the office. Posters like that really do exist all over fetlife.

Loved the continuity details like fist and arrow graffiti on the first page. The now-obligatory diFotze tablets. And attention to detail like showing the same framed picture of Sherry that has popped up many times now. Continuity! Awesome.

Speaking of continuity. I loved putting Sherry in the same office we saw in the Favorite! Great stuff! Returning to familiar locations makes the world feel more real and concrete.

Loved the length! So many pages! Is this the longest comic dofantasy has ever had?

I liked the small detail that the girls fought over a chance to serve coffee to one of the few relatively kind men. I suppose that plays to the “nice guy getting appreciated” fantasy in us all. ☺

I’m glad Sherry’s father is dead. I never liked the father-daughter incest, and that was really his whole character. I hope we never see father-daughter incest again. Only mother-daughter and sister-sister incest for me, thank you very much. I don’t like any males in my incest fantasies.

Loved the characters! The key to E’s success is when E takes pre-existing characters who we already know and understand and then lets their unique personalities interact with each other. Sherry and Holly inevitably locked horns, Paul was his usual conniving self, but do I detect some cracks appearing in his armour? (time will tell) And even Aiko got to return and grow as a character -much the way others have in the past. Its sooooooooooooo much better seeing old characters interact than it is to meet all new ones. I think that why I did not like the Bottom very much. This episode was way better than the Bottom.

Loved, loved LOVED the details about Holly Venger. She painted her own artwork. She tried and failed to be a novelist. Loved it! These feel like such real people because of details like that!

LIGHTENING ROUND: The Bad

I didn’t like all the references to Paul cuckolding other women’s husbands. One of the things I liked about the E-verse is that ALL the men get to win. That’s what makes it such a fun fantasy. In the real world, rich and powerful men already are the ones who get to live their sexual fantasies. Its actually less fun for me to fantasize about the rich and powerful living this life. What I like about the E verse is how normal and every-day enslaving women is. That’s just what all men do. So now that we have the rich grinding the poor under their heels its just… I don’t know… the real world is seeping into my fantasy again. Spoiling some of the fun.

The same for Paul commanding the other men not fuck Holly, even in her so-called lowest moment. I know I am much more picky that even most kinky guys, but if a guy says “you are allowed to dominate my woman but you aren’t allowed to fuck her” then to me its not really dominating. It’s the reverse, its being dominated by another man. So somehow Holly was not as low as she could have been. On the other hand, that’s more of an artistic choice because E wants to keep Holly with some dignity intact for future stories. She’s more interesting if she is humiliated but not broken… so maybe we’ll give a pass on that one.

I didn’t like that this story more or less ignored the Carol-Sherry-Molly rivalry that was set up in BG 10. Maybe I am getting spoiled from reading so much high-quality E stories (I know am lol), but after the huge build up on the rivalry in LoveLust, I expect some kind of pay off! Maybe not today, but eventually! (punches fist against table) But if I am right about Trudy then this story did cleverly move that plotline along after all. I wonder. Does Carol understand just how much Paul obsessed over her? Now that she;s an older woman she may not be able to live up to the fantasy Paul wove around her. Will Carol become intimated by trying to compete with the image she had when she was 18? I can tell you one of the greatest pressures in the world isknowing you have to live up to the image of yourself that has built up in your lovers mind.


CONCLUSION
Over all, this story is great. It never quite reached the level of emotional pay-off that made The Favorite and LoveLust the best stories ever, so its not quite the best… but its damn close. Its probably in my top 3 ever. It gets better every time I read it. It was well worth the wait, and continued proof of E’s ever-increasing skill.

I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Wow Otherguy, if Erenisch is the best in bdsm porn comics, you are the best in bdsm porn comic reviews :)

I will start with saying that this is a very very very good comic. The story is so full and well written it feels like it is twice as long than the usual dof comic. The art is fantastic as always, but what strikes me is that there is so many character development for so many characters wthin a single comic.

Sherry is of course the best thing here, but I also liked Holly Venger a lot. She was okay in the Hotel, but here she is a fully realized character, sexy and interesting. It is interesting that we saw Holly in two comics and no penetration yet.

Aiko I though was a nice addition to the list of characters. I enjoyed her thoughts in the beginning of the comic. And I enjoyed the phone call scene, I think E makes references to his/her earlier phone scenes here, the ones from BG2 and BG10.

Also I think E did a good job making aiko look Asian, she has a subtle ethnic look. Or maybe I'm imagining it

I also liked the way E put a discussion about clothes in the story. Forget about the characters, the star of the comic and the general theme is clothes. Or what clothes mean in this universe. Very smart and nicely done too.

The motivational posters!

Dilbert! :lol: :lol:

Suzie Creamcheese!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:



I will read it again and again, I'm sure I'll be back with more to talk about.
