Norm Feuti’s Gil Debuts From King Features

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials, Interviews,

Norm Feuti's GilCongratulations to Norm Feuti on Gil!

He started the strip as a webcomic, then put it on hiatus to work on other things, then brought it back through King Features. You can read about that process here.

It debuts this week in classic newspaper syndication (you can also find it online).

It’s a great, funny strip and Feuti’s an excellent cartoonist.

I interviewed him awhile ago when he was first starting on Gil and I wish him nothing but success.

Bookmark the strip, write to your local paper to make them aware of it, and read the heck out it.

There’s also the Gil Blog with lots of fun extras to enjoy.

Gary Coleman Scheduled for Divorce Court

Gary Coleman, Shannon Price

While I am in no way an authority on relationships, there are some things I would feel comfortable telling any set of newlyweds.  Never admit your marriage hasn’t been consummated...and never reveal scary anger issues.  At least not to the media.

Unfortunately, Gary Coleman and his wife, Shannon Price, have already passed the point of no return and have chosen to keep on going.  The 40-year-old actor and his wife of only 8 months have now opted to air their differences on Divorce Court.  No, no - they’re not actually getting a divorce (at least, not yet), they’re just gonna get a little guidance from Judge Lynn Toler.  (What?  ‘s peeps didn’t pay to get them on first?)
