'''''TRU-Life Adventures''''' is a long-running webcomic set primarily at a toy store. The characters regularly deal with all the hazards that come from working retail: bad customers, worse management, an epic time-travel war that threatens to destroy reality. So yeah, things can get a little strange.

Oh, and you can find it [[http://www.tru-lifeadventures.com here]].
