Comics Underground and Above: The Story of Kitchen Sink Press [Video]

In this event we join comics scholar Jim Danky as he moderates this conversation with Denis Kitchen, Howard Cruse, Maggie Galvan, and David Hajdu, in honor of Columbia University’s Rare Book & Manuscript Library’s acquisition of the Kitchen Sink Press archives.

Denis Kitchen is an American underground cartoonist, publisher, author, agent, and the founder of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. His company Kitchen Sink Press was a pioneering publisher of underground comics, and was also responsible for numerous republications of classic comic strips in hardcover and softcover volumes. These included comic strip reprints in hard cover and soft cover. One of its best-known products was the first total reprinting of Will Eisner’s The Spirit first in magazine format then in color.
