Egmont is a huge Danish media holding company, with origins that stretch back to 1878. It was founded by a 17-year-old named Egmont H. Petersen, who had taken a mortgage out against his mother's assets to buy a small printing press. The family's gamble paid off, but the multi-billion-Euro concern that arose from this act of faith has never forgotten its roots in youthful ambition. Egmont is itself wholly owned by The Egmont Foundation, an organization dedicated to charitable activities for children.

And Egmont has made its name on various media publications that are primarily aimed at kids and families.

Its usual practice is to set up separate, mostly autonomous, divisions in each country in which it operates. Even in the home country of Denmark, comics publications are handled by a separately-named entity (Serieforlaget).

Since 1947, Egmont has had a relationship with Disney to produce comic books. Initially they held the rights to publish only the Swedish-language version of the Donald Duck book. Now, however, they are the most geographically diverse Disney rights-holders in Europe. They control Disney comic production in Scandinavia, the UK, German-speaking countries, and most of Eastern Europe. They even were the first to publish Disney comics in mainland China.

Again, Egmont is best viewed as a parent or holding company. It is not the publisher of record for any modern comic book.

Please use one of the following country-specific publishers when entering an Egmont comic book into the database:

Serieforlaget (Denmark), Serieförlaget AB (Sweden), Egmont Serieforlaget AS (Norway), Egmont Bulgaria (Bulgaria), Egmont CR (Czech and Slovak Republics), Egmont CSFR (historical publisher for Czechoslovakia), Egmont Neografia (Slovak Republic), Egmont Estonia (Estonia), Egmont Hungary (Hungary), Egmont Hrvatska (Croatia), Egmont Latvia (Latvia), Egmont Lietuva (Lithuania), Egmont Polska (Poland), Egmont Romania (Romania), Egmont Russia (Russia), Egmont Srbija (Serbia and Montenegro), Egmont Slovenia, (Slovenia, Albania, Belarus, Macedonia), Doğan Egmont Publications (Turkey), Egmont Ehapa Verlag GmbH (Germany, Austria, and Switzerland), Children's Fun Publications (China), and Egmont Magazines (UK).
