The Oxebridge comic strip about ISO 9001, called THE AUDITOR, has now surpassed 500 individual strips.

The feature was added to the Oxebridge website in 2019, and was intended only to add about one strip per month. It quickly grew in popularity, however.

THE AUDITOR pokes fun at ISO 9001 auditors and the audits themselves, showing the often annoying antics of fictional auditor Ray Battlesbee as he audits his client Alex Mendes of Mundrum Machining Corp. It has since amassed a large cast of supporting characters, including satirical takes on real-life ISO figures.

In honor of the milestone, creator Christopher Paris worked up the “2023 Cast Photo” illustration above, along with a map of each character and link to their entries in the growing THE AUDITOR Wiki.
