Norm Feuti and King Features Syndicate launched Gil yesterday. The strip dates back to 2008 when Norm ran it as a webcomic after a first round of rejections by syndicates. After a couple of other submissions, Norm resubmitted the strip to King and was green lighted for a launch.
“I don’t think the situation will be all that alien to readers,” says writer and artist Norm Feuti, who was raised with his sister in a broken home. “It’s a very personal strip to me, but not 100% autobiographical. The overall message is that sense of wonder and optimism of being a kid, no matter the circumstances.”
A great strip for sure. Best of luck Norm!
