King Comics

This article is about the US comics publisher. For the Indian comics publisher, see King Comics (Raj Comics).

King Comics, a short-lived comic book imprint of King Features Syndicate, was an attempt by King Features to publish comics of its own characters, rather than through other publishers.[1]

The line ran for approximately a year-and-a-half, with its series cover-dated from August 1966 to December 1967. A few titles were picked up from Gold Key Comics. Some stories created for King were later published in the continuation of certain titles by Charlton Comics.[2]
