Norm Feuti is bringing back his "Gil" comic strip.

But -
only as a Sunday strip
and -
exclusive to readers of The Providence Journal.

Happy Mother's Day Rhode Island!

And they're dropping "Get Fuzzy" to make room for Gil's return (Ironically, the Sunday "Fuzzy" strips are new; the dailies are not).

Are these reruns of the pre distributed by King Features strips?

There's only been the one so far. I do not /think/ it is a rerun.

By the way, you can see it at retailcomics.com

Gil from Mother's Day 2012 (no theme):

http://digital.olivesoftware.com/Repository/ml.asp?Ref=VFBKLzIwMTMvMDUvMTIjQXIwNzMwNA%3D%3D&Mode=Gif&Locale=english-skin-custom

2014 is definitely not a rerun. Assuming Feuti will draw new strips for Providence readers. At least it's good to know Gil is appreciated somewhere.


BTW When you click on "Back" or "Continuation" in the links, it directs you to other strips.

More from the Providence Journal:

"Frazz" has been added as a replacement for "Get Fuzzy" Monday through Saturday.

Looks like this URL:

will get you one click away from the new strip each Sunday.

For some reason today's Gil hasn't been posted on Feuti's blog
(http://www.normfeuticartoons.com/) as usual, but it can be seen here:

He maybe in trouble with the recycling police as well, if he keeps

popular costume this Halloween.

BTW, Thanks for posting these each week; I don't know how to get to the
strips on my own (I assume they're Sunday only) and it's nice when they
show up here. Gil is an engaging kid in his mini-stories.

Correct. Gil is Sunday-only since returning in strip form back in May and is only available in the Providence Journal (the strip was very popular with its' readers in its' previous syndication run).

http://www.providencejournal.com/features/entertainment/cartoons/gil/ is
the archive, and a new link appears there ca. 1 AM every Sunday. From
there it's five clicks - one to the current page, one to enlarge the
JPEG, and three to get rid of the two windows you've created and the
annoying popunder the Journal serves up free of charge.

The're also available at: http://www.normfeuticartoons.com/

I've never gotten any popups at this site, though they may not be posted as
early.

I used to get them there but indeed found the posting time annoyingly
variable. YMMV.

That 2/8/2015 Gil strip sure would tie in to the recent New England/Northeast states wrath of snowy weather.

Are there school systems where there is a vacation in February? In my
day, there was 2 weeks around Christmas, and then Easter break in March
or April, depending. Is this new for a year round schedule, some other
configuration?

A week off in February was added by many cold-climate school districts
during the energy crisis of the 1970s. Some have since eliminated it,
some not. Schools here in the Rochester NY area, for example, will be
closed this week.

Does anybody have a link for the 3/1 Gil strip from the Providence Journal's web site? Norm hasn't updated his blog yet.

So the URL I've used in the past:

http://www.providencejournal.com/features/entertainment/cartoons/gil/

still goes to the archive index, and there's a link to today's strip page:

http://www.providencejournal.com/features/entertainment/cartoons/gil/20150107-gil-learns-something-about-rhode-island-winters.ece

but I don't see an image. Perhaps one now needs an account?
