As the founder of Kitchen Sink Press, Denis Kitchen published some of the most important independent and underground comics of the last 50 years, including Bizarre Sex, Gay Comix, Omaha the Cat Dancer, Will Eisner’s Quarterly, The Crow, and From Hell. He has also been a lifelong defender of the First Amendment rights of comics retailers, creators, and readers, and is the founder of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, of which Marvel by the Month is a member.
