GOLDEN KID COMICS JOINS FORCES WITH EMPIRE COMICS LAB!

​The editors and creators of Golden Kid Comics are delighted to announce that their fledgling company is joining forces with Empire Comics Lab. Fans of Golden Kid Comics are to be reassured that this recent team-up with the ECL will be nothing but beneficial to the indie publisher that is dedicated to providing entertaining, kid-friendly comic books for children of all ages. Indeed, this joining will no doubt help Golden Kid Comics reach all new heights of success and popularity. 

​Under this deal, Golden Kid Comics maintains all rights to their characters and stories. Also, all stories and artwork will still be produced by Dan Johnson and Josh Holley. The only difference is that Golden Kid Comics will now be promoted by Empire Comics Lab at comic book shows and online. Golden Kid Comics’ books will be published as a part of Empire Comics Lab’s line of book, but maintain its own separate brand (similar to the Vertigo line as published by DC Comics).

Installments of the weekly Golden Kid Comics web series will still premiere at goldenkidcomics.com, but will then be made available through Empire Comics Lab’s website a few days later. Also, exclusive content such as puzzles, pin-ups and coloring pages will premiere first at the Golden Kid Comics website as well. 

​The primary thing is that both companies will be working together for a common goal: to make the best comic books possible. This merger is proof positive of something every child learns by reading comic books like X-Men and Justice League of America: We are stronger when united together than when we work on our own.
