In 1962 Dell & Western Publishing broke up, an event referred to as "the divorce". As most of the titles were owned or licensed by Western they took them with them & formed GoldKeyComics. Dell Comics, once the most popular comics company, had to start up a new comic book company from scratch with the few titles they had left. Dell Comics ceased publishing in the 1970s.

Dell first printed comics in 1929 with "The Funnies", the first newsstand comic book with all-original material. In 1935 it contracted & distributed comic books created by Western Publishing And Lithography. Licensed properties made up a majority of their output. The company was so popular that it refused to join with the other companies making up the [[ComicsCode Comics Code Authority]] & offered its own pledge to parents that "Dell Comics were good comics".
