So I've been wondering why it takes them so long to actually release these comics after E submits them. They don't need to manufacture anything (it looks like CDs are made after orders have been submitted). The webpage should be relatively easy to program. Since each comics page is in the same format all you should need to do is a previous page and change the comic specific information/hyperlinks. An OCD programmer who wants to get everything looking perfect might take a couple of hours once he (or she) gets the information, but this could be done in under an hour. Especially if someone took the time to write a script that ask for the necessary information and then creates a prototype page. So how long does it take to get him the necessary information?

I guess Dofantasy probably has someone who reads it and makes sure it is something they want to sell. I don't know how much else this person may be responsible for, but I'd like to think this is accomplished within 24 hours of receiving the comic. (Unless E sends this in with the comic) someone at Dofantasy also has to write the blurb telling buyers the general plot of the comic. I can't imagine this taking more than 2 days. The only other task that may need to be done is choosing how much to charge for the book. I would guess this is probably done while the blurb is being written so I wouldn't say it takes any additional time. Adding it all up I find myself thinking the comic should be released within 3-4 business days of E submitting it.

This is purely speculation on my part, so I may be completely wrong. If someone knows if any parts of this are wrong (or right) I would appreciate hearing it. Also, I'm sorry if this topic has been discussed before.

Dofantasy office is a "virtual" one where different functions are performed by people from different parts of the world, via internet. Most of these people have day jobs. So add time difference, internet speed, e-mail response lags, and simple procrastination to your formula.

But you are right, this is basically a two day job. They did a within-two-days release once before, so we know they can do it when they want/need to.

Good as I expected this comic to be, it's even better. The character development in E.'s work gets more complex, interesting and nuanced with every new release. This one is both extremely hot and extremely intriguing for all it implies.

And it does indeed remind me in a way of the kind of offices in which my dad worked when I was young. It wasn't as blatantly misogynistic, but if the guys in charge could have had it that way, I fear many of them would have. Things I overheard back then were frighteningly similar to some of the off-hand comments of the male office workers in The Office.

It's been said that the best sic-fi/fantasy written is really about the present rather than the future (1984 was written in 1948 and much influenced by the events of that time).

E.'s alternate universe projects the attitudes of the past, many of which are still with us in various destructive ways, and projects them into a future that's arousing as fantasy but horrifying to contemplate as prophecy. I'm relieved to feel confident that most of the world of today isn't headed in that direction (Orwell was pretty far off the mark in terms of prognostication, thankfully) but what is going on in many parts of the world now is still a lo-tech version of E.'s dystopia.

Great comic. Can't wait to give it another read-through.

It's heavily implied that they're killed, though I gather that the artist is keeping their fate a mystery.

I didn't get that. Looks like I'm rereading the scene.

In Slave Fair 2 though, they kinda imply either murdering them, or reselling for lesser value

I am sure they are not killed. Paul is not that kind of guy, and he never threatens his slaves with death.

Also we see in the boardroom scene that Paul is a good businessman, he would definitely sell the older sexretaries especially after he invests a lot in their training and modifications.

Note how he admires Holly for making enslavement a bad business choice by asking a low wage.

I don't think Paul kills all of his women, or even most of them. I think he kills each year's Teasebitch. Either that, or sends them back to the Clinic to be remixed and then resold at a lower rate. They're brainwashed to worship Paul specifically as a god, and 'performance boosted' to receive the particular brand of punishment he, according to Sherry, seems to only dish out to these slaves. Once their tenure is up, what good are they to anyone else?

That's a dark idea. I tend to agree with Bagerman because Paul doesn't seem like a murderer type guy. But you might be right too. Teasebitch girls are Carol proxies and who knows what Paul does with them when they are "replaced "

Still I think that Pual would just throw them out in a garbage dump or something, it is poetic: Carol dumped him, so he would dump the Carol look alikes. literally. I can see him driving them to the dump personally and let them out of his trunk. And they would do as he says because he is a god to them.

I like that it's open to interpretation. Personally, I'd rather the Sn**f stuff be kept far, far away from my porn. However, it is a reality in this world - whither poor Anita at the end of SF2, and all the girls who never made it out of the Cumbath Club. We don't actually know what kind of guy Paul is, we don't get access to his thoughts. The mystery of what happens to these girls makes him more interesting.

I completely agree with this. I am not sure I have anything to add, you've already said it. I personally don't like Sn**f porn and I like to avoid it... yet I have to admit in my darkest hours that there is something hot about what happens to Anita in SF2. I also agree that Paul would not normally murder, but I could believe he might, especially in the case of these girls. And finally I agree that the mystery makes it better. I don't think we need to ever know what happens to the girls. I think speculation makes it better. i would rather get a few vague hints, but never really find out for sure.

Here is another reason why Paul is not killing these Carol proxies. There are twenty of them and they serve for about a year, so this thing goes back roughly 20 years. (Carol's wedding with the other guy) We know that it was before the CFSL. So At least two or three of these girls must be "unoffical slaves" and killing them would be murder before the revolution and the enslavement law.

Of course I can see how this theory can crumble. Maybe Paul began this tradtition after the law, and service periods of these girls are not exactly same with fixed length. Or he started the tradtion before the law with submissive women who were not slaves, but changed the intensity and rituals of it later after the law.

Wow, the more I talk about it the more I want to know about this. :D
