Bio:
Denis Kitchen is an American cartoonist, publisher, author, rights advocate and literary agent whose varied career began in 1968 as one of the original “underground” cartoonists. In 1969 he formed Kitchen Sink Press, and for thirty years he published hundreds of books and comics by artists such as Will Eisner, R. Crumb, Harvey Kurtzman, Milton Caniff, Al Capp, Scott McCloud, Dave McKean, Mark Schultz, Alan Moore, Eddie Campbell, Charles Burns, Art Spiegelman and many others.

In 1986 Kitchen founded and for its first eighteen years chaired the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund (CBLDF), a non-profit organization that defends the constitutional rights of free expression in U.S. comics. After Kitchen Sink Press ended in 1999, he diversified his activities. He is currently a partner in two literary agencies (Kitchen, Lind & Associates, and Kitchen & Hansen Agency), which represent prominent comics creators. He also “packages” books for major U.S. publishers.

As a writer and comics historian Kitchen assembled and annotated Kurtzman & Elder’s "Little Annie Fanny" (2 volumes); "Al Capp’s Complete Shmoo" (2 volumes), "Li’l Abner: The Frank Frazetta Years" (4 volumes) and "Blackjacked and Pistol-Whipped: A Crime Does Not Pay Primer" (with John Lind). In 2009 Kitchen co-authored (with Paul Buhle) the multiple award-winning "Art of Harvey Kurtzman" and "Underground Classics" (with James Danky). He also co-authored with Michael Schumacher "Al Capp: A Life to the Contrary" for Bloomsbury.

Kitchen has also curated numerous domestic and international comic art exhibitions, focusing on underground comix and retrospectives of Kurtzman, Eisner, and others.

Two books of his own art were recently published: "The Oddly Compelling Art of Denis Kitchen (Dark Horse, 2010) and "Denis Kitchen’s Chipboard Sketchbook" (Boom, 2011). In 2010-2011 a Kitchen retrospective hung at The Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art in New York City.
