When Comics Were King!
King Features Syndicate has had some reasonably good luck over the past century of their existence getting their comic strips adapted to comic book form. Below is a very meager sampling of what has hit the stands over the last one hundred years. These are the comics which have run this month in the Favorite Cover feature celebration of the centennial of King Features, with a few others thrown in which couldn't find a day. Enjoy!
From The Yellow Kid to Zippy the Pinhead with a lot of kids, heroes, and fools in between -- I see a real circular nature to the evolution of King Features. For one hundred years or better comics have really been about us, as much as we'd like to sometimes imagine that wasn't the case.
Are we having fun yet? You betcha!
