You've heard the name, Ayn Rand… she was brought up a lot during the 2012 elections in relation to Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan who stated his belief in her views… though he tried to back away from them as the election went on. Comic fans should also be familiar with her in relation to Spider-Man, Doctor Strange and The Creeper creator Steve Ditko. The enigmatic artist was a staunch supporter of Rand's teaching. Concepts that influenced most of this work, most obviously in his creator owned series Mr. A.
But knowing of Rand and knowing Rand is a bit different. Artist Darryl Cunningham has put together a free on-line comic biography of the polarizing woman. He has presented it in a balanced, unbiased approach. Its well worth the read.
