Gil Thorp retrospective planned

For those in the Connecticut area:

Gil Thorp, popularly regarded as an “always trying to do the right thing” kind of guy, has been known throughout the area, and beyond, for more than half a century. And now, fans of the “Milford High coach” and those who would like to get acquainted will have an opportunity to do so this weekend, when a special exhibit featuring the comic strip character and his creator, Jack Berrill, will be presented at Pomperaug Woods in Southbury.

The retrospective, which is being mounted by his widow, Veronica Berrill, is “a last look” at the “Gil Thorp” collection, which will soon have a permanent home at the Billy Ireland Cartoon Museum and Library at Ohio State University.

Details on location and time at the website linked above.

Gil Thorp by Jack Berrill was a very well done strip, and I have found through the years that it has quite a few followers and collectors. I wish I could make this showing of his work.

Don’t tell me that there’s a rumor the Gil Thorp comic strip will cease before 2012 is over? Or won’t it?

What does “last look” mean? I love Gil Thorp.
