MoCCA: Denis Kitchen

Gary Dunaier took a great set of photos when he attended a talk by Eisner friend and publisher Denis Kitchen at the Museum of Cartoon and Comic Art (MoCCA) in New York. The discussion was held in connection with MoCCA's exhibit Denis Kitchen: An Oddly Compelling Mini-Retrospective, on view at MoCCA from 10/05/10 until 01/30/11.

Denis Kitchen was one of the pioneer underground cartoonists in the late '60s. But he "joined the dark side," becoming a publisher (Kitchen Sink Press) of such greats as Will Eisner and R. Crumb. A new book, The Oddly Compelling Art of Denis Kitchen (Dark Horse) shows that he still had a surprisingly productive and diverse career as a cartoonist. This mini-retrospective showcases both underground and mainstream art from 1969 to 2005. See the remarkable brush detail that books can't adequately reproduce!
