The Denis Kitchen Art Agency
(DKAA), founded in 1991 by publisher,
author, and cartoonist Denis Kitchen, represents
certain artists and estates for the sale of original art
and/or literary rights.
We specialize in blue chip original comic art work from
such legendary artists as Will Eisner, Harvey
Kurtzman, R. Crumb, and Will Elder
as well as the contemporary talents of Howard Cruse,
Peter Poplaski, Kellie Strom, Frank
Stack, Joel Beck, and James O'Barr.
WILL EISNER ESTATE for the sale
of Will Eisner Original Art from classic 1940s-50s Spirit
art to Eisner’s groundbreaking graphic novels. Art
currently available is featured in our ORIGINAL ART
GALLERY. However, we do have a great deal in the archives
that is not yet online. If you don’t see the Eisner art
you are interested in acquiring, email us.
If you are interested in any literary rights or permission
rights for Will Eisner, contact denis at deniskitchen dot
HARVEY KURTZMAN ESTATE for the
sale of Kurtzman Art, from surviving 1940s illustrations
to his 1950s Jungle Book to 60s Goodman Beaver, “Little
Annie Fanny” and beyond. PETER POPLASKI - This
versatile award-winning illustrator, cartoonist and
painter has created numerous covers for such characters or
titles as Superman and Batman (DC Comics), Steve Canyon,
Li'l Abner, Corporate Crime and Nard n’ Pat (Kitchen
Sink), Shmoo and Crime Does Not Pay (Dark Horse), Gen of
Hiroshima (Educomics) and others.
A notorious style mimic, he drew an Alan Moore "Tom
Strong" story mimicking C.C. Beck, faked out Al Capp’s own
family, has ghosted for R. Crumb, and Milton Caniff
himself couldn’t distinguish an actual Caniff page from a
Poplaski copy. If Pete wasn't so honest he'd be drawing
flawless hundred dollar bills. He also paints wonderful
landscapes, still lifes and portraits. Go to Peter
Poplaski or for commissions contact orders at deniskitchen
dot com. To view Pete in action as his hero Zorro, just
look him up on Youtube.
FRANK STACK (aka Foolbert
Sturgeon) - Frank Stack Art. Considered by many the very
first “underground” cartoonist, he created the ongoing
Jesus series, Dorman's Doggie, Amazon Comics, Dr. Feelgood
and other classic underground comix, sometimes working
with the late Harvey Pekar. DKAA offers primarily Frank’s
comic art, but his watercolor paintings are also available
HOWARD CRUSE - Howard’s powerful
graphic novel Stuck Rubber Baby has won wide accolades,
while his Barefootz series created countless giggles
during the underground comix era. Wendel (see the new
collection from Rizzoli/Universe) and his work for the
groundbreaking Gay Comix evoke both smiles and sometimes
painful insights. Go to Howard Cruse Art for wonderful
examples of his comic art.
KELLIE STRØM is probably
the best artist most American collectors have never heard
of. We are proud to offer his incredible painted Star Wars
pages; and beautiful color and b&w illustrations he’s
done for prestigious clients like the London Times and
Telegraph. If you have kids you have to check out his
lovely children’s book Sadie the Air Mail Pilot (David
Fickling Books). And at least window shop at Kellie Strom.
