Norm Feuti’s Retail Closing

Norm Feuti has announced that he is ending his Retail comic strip.

After a little more than 14 years, I’ve decided to retire my comic strip, RETAIL. The final installment will run on Sunday, February 23, 2020.

I’ve been lucky in recent years to have multiple opportunities creating children’s books, and have decided to take my career in this new direction.

I’d like to thank the fans who read the comic over the years. I hope it made your time behind the cash register a little more bearable.

I am exploring options for the digital archive of RETAIL after it finishes its run. Once I’ve found it a digital home, I will be sure to announce it.

Norm, by way of his weekly Gil comic strip, still appears in the newspaper – if your newspaper is
The Providence Journal.

Gil can be read at Norm’s site, or older ones at GoComics.
That will have to tide us over until Norm’s next goodness.


hat tip to Becky for the heads up on the Retail announcement.

Retail is the 3rd. newspaper comic strip to end in 2020 following the Pajama Diaries and Ask Shagg.

That’s sad, for me. I just discovered Retail about a year ago, and it quickly became one of my favorites.

“Retail” has been my daily read since the beginning. Sorry to see it go, but I wish Norm the best of luck with his children’s book endeavor!

You’re welcome. I go to his site every Sunday to read Gil, and was dismayed to see that message. I needed to share the news with others who would be just as sad.
