    Famous Cartoonist Button 26

    Denis Kitchen. Though probably best-known as the founder and publisher of Krupp Comic Works and Kitchen Sink Press (1969-1999), Kitchen began as a cartoonist (Mom's Homemade Comics, The Bugle) before various businesses pulled him from the drawing board. He found time to edit and contribute to such anthologies as Snarf, Bizarre Sex, Dope Comix and Comix Book as well as contribute to publications as diverse as Playboy, Arcade and The Badger. He also created the character Steve Krupp (though Krupp makes a contradictory claim). Kitchen's newest work, in Dark Horse's Maverick 2001 Anthology, features Steve Krupp in a guest appearance as God.


    About the Buttons:

    Pinback Jack issued this "Famous Cartoonist Series" of self-portrait buttons back in 1975. All of the participating cartoonists were alive and created self-portraits specifically for this button set. With very few exceptions, the images have not appeared elsewhere in print. The buttons were distributed by Krupp Comic Works and Phil Seuling. This set was originally announced as 52 buttons, and the alphabetical numbering reflects that. However, two artists (Neal Adams and Rick Meyerowitz) turned in their self-portraits late, after the first 52 had already been designed. They were included in the set, but numbered 53 and 54 respectively, out of alphabetical sequence. Steve Krupp's Curio Shoppe is now the exclusive source of the remaining limited inventory.

    All the color buttons in this set are metal with clear celluloid covers, are 2.25 inches in diameter, and have "safety" pinbacks. This button is listed for sale as an individual, but we do offer the complete set as well.
