One of the main distributors of Newspaper Comics, King Features was founded in 1915 by media tycoon William Randolph Hearst, and has remained a member of the Hearst media conglomerate to the present day. It was named after Moses Koenigsberg ("Koenig" is German for "king"), who oversaw the distribution of Hearst's features to other papers around the country. Given the relevance of the Hearst empire during the first half of the 20th century, by the 1930s King Features was one of 130 syndicates that distributed 1,600 features to more than 13,700 newspapers in North America, although some of them were syndicated through "second-tier" agencies such as the International Feature Service and the Premier Syndicate.

In later years, KFS absorbed Field Syndicate/News America Syndicate and the Register & Tribune Syndicate. It currently runs around one hundred comic strips and panels, as well as puzzles, political cartoons and columns to thousands of publications around the world.
