Gill, Issue #1: I'm Not Retarded, I'm Big Boned

Just edgy enough to never get syndicated, but still brimming with youthful folly and delight, Gill is a real treasure. Published serial comics are an interesting read, generally going through a complete storyline in 15 panels, split up into 5 strips over 2 pages. The author Norm Feuti does a great job of portraying a socially outcast, overweight gradeschooler with a less than ideal home life in this format. The comic simultaneously heartening and heartbreaking.
