Kitchen sinks? No, kitchen sink. As in Kitchen Sink Press.

Kitchen Sink Press was one of the many casualties of the speculator boom of the mid-90s, where Marvel's acquisition of Heroes World meant that comic book publishers had to go exclusive with one publisher in order to stay afloat. By purchasing a low-level comic book distributor, they forced the other comic book publishers to go with either Diamond or Capital City distributors. Major players DC, Dark Horse, and Image ended up staying with Diamond, whereas Kitchen Sink went with Capital City.

Now, Diamond is the only comic book distributor in town, with a major monopoly. Kitchen Sink is no longer producing comic books...and now their stuff sells on eBay for cheap.
