Denis Kitchen

Denis Kitchen is an American underground cartoonist, publisher, author, agent, and the founder of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.

In 2013, Dark Horse Comics announced it had established a joint venture imprint called Kitchen Sink Books. The imprint would be directed by Kitchen and business partner John Lind and focus on art books, historical collections and reprints and possibly original graphic novels. Dark Horse publisher Mike Richardson said of the imprint “I’m extremely pleased to be working with Denis and John on this new venture. My relationship with Denis goes back to the earliest days of Dark Horse and we’ve had a shared aesthetic with regard to comics from day one. With John, we have one of the best designer/editors in the business. I’m very much looking forward to the exciting projects that will result from this new imprint.”[12] The first book released under the new Kitchen imprint was The Best of Comix Book, a collection of work edited by Kitchen and Stan Lee in the mid-1970s. It was published as a large format hardcover in December 2013.
