Congratulations 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.

"Mad Men" fans might not get a new dose of Don Draper until 2012, but Netflix has inked a deal with Lionsgate to stream all seasons of the show via Watch Instantly.
The first four seasons of the AMC drama will be available to U.S. viewers on Netflix starting July 27. Canadian customers already have streaming access to the show.
"Mad Men has been and continues to be a representation of TV at its best and Netflix is proud to be the syndication home for this acclaimed series," Ted Sarandos, chief content officer at Netflix, said in a statement. "This deal secures long term instant access to an iconic show for Netflix members for years to come."
The deal is noteworthy because Netflix is paying for the syndication rights to "Mad Men"; reruns will not air on other broadcast or cable TV channels.
