In 1969, not long after the revolution began in San Francisco and sprouted up in Chicago (with Bijou Funnies), Kitchen was inspired by the power of the medium and launched his own comic book title, Mom's Homemade Comics ("Straight from the Kitchen to you!"). The remarkable thing about Mom's is how it still manages to be funny today, over 40 years after its original publication. This is almost entirely due to Kitchen's dazzling wit with words, which elevates the series above the average underground.
There are three printings of this comic book, all by Kitchen Sink and all with 50-cent cover prices. It's just about impossible to tell the three printings apart by the front cover art, but the print edition is stated for each printing on the inside front cover
