King of the Comics: One Hundred Years of King Features Syndicate

Print

King Features has had a more illustrious and long-lasting history than any other newspaper syndicate, even as it leads the way into the digital age and beyond.

Krazy Kat! Popeye! Flash Gordon! Beetle Bailey! Blondie! Prince Valiant! Hagar the Horrible! Barney Google and Snuffy Smith! Baby Blues! Mutt & Jeff! Zits! Juliet Jones! Buz Sawyer! Steve Canyon! Bizarro! Hi & Lois! Maggie & Jiggs! Johnny Hazard! There are simply too many to list!

From the earliest days, when William Randolph Hearst first added cartoons to his newspapers, comic strips have had a profound impact on popular culture. With the consolidation of Hearst’s various distribution channels in November 1915, King Features was born. A century later, the world’s largest syndicate leads the way into the 21st century and beyond.
