A Bit More Rand

I have a few more pages to go before I finish the "Ayn Rand Comics" project of adapting chapter 1 of ATLAS SHRUGGED into a graphic novel format. I left off this tale in November due to the work pressures of the holiday season. Here it is back again, for at least a couple of pages. This is page 18.

To re-cap the story of this little workplace drama: Eddie, the young executive assistant, has come to visit his old friend - and boss - James Taggart in his office. Taggart is president of a great railroad network which is deteriorating from neglect and corruption. Eddie tries to impress on James that they must repair the rails on a route, the "Rio Norte Line," which connects to a profitable oil field. James is trying to deny that anything is wrong.

"Ayn Rand Comics" is ink on a sketchbook page, 6" x 8". Lettering added in Photoshop.
