King Features Gets Moomin, Tulipop License

King Features Licensing has signed on to be the North America representative of the Scandinavian Moomin characters and the Icelandic Tulipop.

King Features Syndicate, a unit of Hearst, has reached an agreement with Bulls Licensing to represent classic literary and art-based brand Moomin for merchandise, advertising, and promotions in the U.S. and Canada. Moomin is the latest addition to King Features broad portfolio of both classic and new characters including Popeye, Betty Boop, Cuphead, The Phantom, Flash Gordon, Mandrake the Magician, Archie Comics, Garfield, and more. The news comes on the heels of yesterday’s announcement that King Features will also represent Icelandic property Tulipop in the U.S. and Canada.

Im sure Hearst will drain this nothing story dry as much as they always do.

maybe we should talk about hoe much KING syndicate takes from their entry level people. It would only take one person like Jerry Scott or Patrick McDonnell to expose the draconian contracts that the Hearst company puts on their new creators.

STAND UP AGAINST THE SYNDICATES! King has a 10-year tail on their contract that says they get 40% of a comic’s revenue! WTF!
