KFS made an effort to publish comic books of its own by establishing the publishing company King Comics in 1967. This short-lived comic book line showcased King's best-known characters in seven titles: Beetle Bailey, Blondie, Flash Gordon, Jungle Jim, Mandrake the Magician, The Phantom and Popeye.
The Mandrake stories were all new non newspaper stories. In addition to the Mandrake series there was three Mandrake stories as back-up titles in the "Flash Gordon" and "The Phantom" series.
