Norm Feuti’s Gil launched yesterday

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.

From USA Today:

“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!

Congratulations to Norm! He does fine work (by any standard) and “Gil” deserves some time in the sun.

The setting and theme reminds me of Jerry Bittle’s “Shirley and Son.”

“Gil” is a welcome addition to my Daily Ink subscription. I hope (and will be watching to see if) King Features is as aggressive selling Norm’s new strip as they were with Steve Kelley & Jeff Parker’s “Dustin.”
