Last page of Atlas chapter 1




Here it is, my long-awaited graphic adaptation of the last page of the first chapter of Ayn Rand's ATLAS SHRUGGED. What, you haven't been awaiting it? All right, not everyone is a Rand fan. This project has been one of my favorites, though. If I had another life to waste, I'd do the whole book. It would take me decades to do, if I were just working by myself. I don't intend to do this. Also, this adaptation is kind of illegal, since it has not been authorized by the Rand people, who hold the copyrights to the sacred scriptures of the prophetess.

Besides, I have my own original world and characters to illustrate. Why spend time and energy graphicizing Rand's world and characters? All right, Rand's characters are hotter and sexier than my dowdy Noantri. But none of my Noantri characters have ever raped anyone, or been raped, thank God. Nor does my techno-mage architect blow up a building because the builders ruined his designs. He works by legal contract, for "No-God's" sake.

But at least I'm showing you a piece of fresh art. Now that Rand's done for now, I can go on to numerous other projects which will be more entertaining and enjoyable, at least for someone.

This is great work!

There is a way you could publish it and be all right: as a webcomic. I think you'd get more readers than you think.

If you want help in this project, I'd be willing to work with you. A graphic adaptation of this book is what the world needs, especially to reach the young people.
