This wasn't the original comic that I created for today, but I didn't really feel that the first comic was good enough to be my next to last comic for Business Casual. So I came up with this bit of meta humor instead.

Now, I don't feel that Business Casual was actually a waste of my time. Would I have liked it to be more successful? Of course. But in the end, the comic just wasn't (a) good enough or (b) lucky enough to get a strong following. You can pick which option you want to believe. But I did learn a lot while creating this comic, and it even helped me obtain some jobs in the real world.

So do I have anything at all planned for the future of Business Casual? While there won't be new comics on the site, I do plan to maintain the site for the foreseeable future. There's still a lot of content on the site that I'm proud to show to people. And new readers can still have fun strolling through the years of comics on the site.

I'm also planning on putting together a couple more collected editions of Business Casual into book form at some point in the future. I don't have any big plans for these books, but it's something that I'd like to have for future conventions and for my own personal collection.

So only one more comic to go for Business Casual. Let's meet here Friday and wrap this thing up.

In case anyone wants some bonus content, here's the original comic that I had prepared for today - Original.

I am very sad seeing the last Comic to come this friday.

I found this comic years ago by luck searching for something else and reading it since then. I am from germany and as I worked in a global Company I know most of the stories which are also happened in my real life or at least a very close to it. They helped me focus on me work as it seems that the rest of the world is as stupid as here. ;)

It was a lot of fun reading and improving my english with it so many thanks for all your work creating 2 or 3 Comics a week, it was a lot of fun to read!

Thank you again and hopefully some day in the future you feel to continue...

regards Maik

The original comic was great! I'll have to find another comic to pass around the office that will raise spirits because they know it isn't just us. :)

You can add one more fan outside US - from Latvia. Your comic was on my top 3 list for last few years and I never understood why it is not so well known as some others. I believe it is just a matter of (b) ...

I've been reading for several years. I've got a collection of comics in my Google Reader and this one has been one of my favorites. I'm a web developer and work for a software company, so many of these hit home. My past favorite was "Working Daze", but the artist has changed and I just don't like the style anymore. Your style has always been very clean, if that makes any sense.

As a side note, my Dad is an Engineer and knows cars. The comics with Pete and his Dad always crack me up.

Good luck with whatever you have going next or just enjoy the break.

Thanks for the complient from afar. I've always wondered if my comics made sense to those outside of America. I'm happy to hear that they are enjoyed elsewhere as well.


My Dad was a mechanic. I'd like to say that I'm embellishing some of the Pete/Dad stories, but their pretty close to real life.
