Retail book contains more than comics

Norm Feuti’s Retail will have a book coming out this October, which will be more than a comics collection, according to E&P.

Feuti, who rose from salesperson to store manager during more than 15 years in the retail industry, structured “Pretending You Care” as a handbook for new retail employees. The Hyperion-published paperback — mostly text but with plenty of comics — is also aimed at shoppers.

  1. LOL, I like the title. I worked in retail “Pretending I Cared” for 5+ years and was on the management track… then I got a better job sitting on my butt in an office (no, seriously, I get to play with a computer all day, so it’s good.) I went from Retail to Dilbert.

    Great work on the strip, Norm, some of them hit a so close to home it’s scary. And good luck with the book, I’ll have to check it out.

  2. Norm!

    Congrats sir! I was just about to e-mail you after reading this, but hey…you’re here and I’m lazy. 😉

    Seriously though…awesome news, sir! I will be pre-ordering this book on Amazon.

    Keep up the good work on ‘Retail’. Cooper is one of the best characters out there.


  3. I imagine most people (especially cartoonists) have worked in retail at some point in their lives. I lucked out and worked in a toy shop, but I can still relate to a lot of these strips. Great work and congrats on the book.

  4. Thanks, Alex, and congratulations to you as well! I look forward to adding Arctic Circle to my DailyINK page when it launches this August.

  5. Terri,
    Pajama Diaries is one of the hidden gems of the syndicated comics. I hope your toon is doing well enough to keep you creating it!
