When Norm Feuti’s Gil ended syndication at the end of 2013 The Providence Journal requested that Norm continue the comic strip there as a Sunday-only exclusive. Norm was happy to do so.
The end of 2022 saw the now Gannett–owned newspaper making cuts – Gil is one of the victims.
It gives me no pleasure to announce that GIL has ended. The new management at The Providence Journal decided to stop carrying the feature at the end of 2022. While they gave no official explanation, I imagine it was a cost-cutting measure. Unlike their syndicated comics, I had no contract with the ProJo, so it was an easy cut to make. I suppose 10 years was a good run.
Gil began on November 10, 2008 as the webcomic “Gill.” King Features picked it up, renamed it “Gil” and syndicated it nationally for two years from January 2, 2012 – December 29, 2013. The Providence Journal ran “Gil” as a Sunday-only strip from May 11, 2014 to December 25, 2022.
Norm archives the entire Sunday-only version at his website.

I wonder what the Providence Journal chose to replace Gil for the Sunday comics.
Thanks for the ride – Gil was a real kid –
