Comic-book artist, historian, publisher and literary agent Denis Kitchen is giving Columbia University the archive of Kitchen Sink Press – where he directed the publication of underground comics from 1969 to 1999.

Underground comics are published by small printers or are self-published and they’re often socially relevant or satirical in nature.

The Kitchen archives document the history of underground comics and are a chronicle of the cultural and social history of the 20th century.

Kitchen Sink Press was launched in 1969 so Kitchen could self-publish his own underground comics.

He also offered graphic artists a model that allowed them to keep their original art and receive a royalty – which was rare before that time.
