    Mom's Homemade Comics No. 1 (1969) by Denis Kitchen.

    Sub-titled "Straight From the Kitchen to You!!," this early underground comic book is distinguished on several levels: it is the only solo comic book produced by cartoonist Denis Kitchen (who went on to become one of the key underground publishers), it is the first comic book published by Kitchen Sink Press (1969-1999) and, according to Jay Lynch, it was only the 8th underground comic.

    This first printing was published in an edition of just 4,000 copies in Milwaukee, WI.

    This edition is distinguished by three notable features: it has a matte cover, a 49 cent cover price and it includes several local advertisements. (A subsequent printing by Berkeley's Print Mint has a slick cover, a 50 cent cover price and includes no ads.) Of the 4,000 print run, 3,500 copies were sold in Milwaukee outlets, while only 500 were distributed by Gary Arlington in San Francisco. Thus it is an exceptionally difficult underground comic to find, particularly in nice condition.

    Our first printing copies, in near mint/mint condition, are from the artist's private collection. Autographed upon request.
