    It isn't as widely syndicated as a lot of comic strips, but there's a great one that I read called Retail that's about the employees of a fictional department store (and very true to life). Today's strip had the receiving supervisor, Cooper, show up in his Halloween costume...

    That gave me a good chuckle. The thread title threw me off though. I expected it to be a criticism of Character Options or an online retailer.

    Yeah I saw that in my local paper this morning, it was great.
    IIRC last year Cooper's costume was the subject of the comic for the entire week, hopefully they'll do the same thing this year.

    What was his costume last year? I only started following the strip earlier this year after picking up a copy of Norm Feuti's Pretending You Care.

    Usually she looks angry because she's dealing with stupid customers and her annoying manager.

    That's a good choice, Retail is a great comic strip. Easily one of my favorites.

    Most arcs in the strip only run a week (occasionally two), and since today's the day after Halloween, it's probably the end.
