Did you know It was almost exactly one year ago that Ayn Rand’s Adventures were first released upon this world? One year ago Ayn Rand set out on a 13-part time-traveling adventure filled with political intrigue, mescalin, and vomit.

In honor of Ayn’s birthday, and for those who missed out on Ayn’s epic graphic novel comix adventure, you can now download a free .pdf of the entire thing.

    I look forward to the low-budget, hastily thrown together movie version starring the cast of One Tree Hill.

    • OzoneTom

      I'm pretty sure that this is one case where the spin-off will be better than the original movie.

  • How do I convert this to PowerPoint? Giving a presentation in 5 minutes…

  • Gopherit

    I can't wait to read how she time travels on a train! It has to have something to do with Rearden metal and hating commies and the lazy poors!

  • glamourdammerung

    It is only fair since more people saw the graphic novel than "Atlas Shrugged, Part One".

    • Callyson

      Though I just might give in when it's out on DVD. I figure it will have a few laughs.
      Then again, I had quite a few laughs during last night's GOP debate, so perhaps I have a warped sense of humor. More so.

  • ProgressiveInga

    Which chapter answers the question, "Chicken wings. Mild or Spicy?"

    • elviouslyqueer

      Must. resist. saying… oh, fuck it.

      All of them, Katie.

  • Mumbletypeg

    You don't need to look hard at my avatard to tell that viewing this blingee of yours has given me a splitting headache.

    Thanks for the laughs with the static graphics, Frisch. They've been (& still continue to be) much enjoyed.

    Maybe this has been quoted all too often, but I LOVE it!

    "There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs." Screenwriter John Rogers.

      That really is awesome and bears repeating again and again.

  • Lionel[redacted]Esq

    Giving it away for free is hardly going Galt. Didn't you learn anything Ben?

    • emmelemm

      It's certainly no way to become one of those 1%ers.

    • AJWjr.

      He'll make it up with volume.

  • Radiotherapy

    I'm sure the object of this free market offer is to make money.

    "…13-part time-traveling adventure filled with political intrigue, mescalin, and vomit."

    Sounds like my Saturday nights… yippee!

  • PsycWench

    You know what the Tea Party adopted from "Atlas Shrugged"? The endless, pointless, repetitive, repetitive speech-giving.

    • They took that one tout court, but left behind all the graphic sex. Tea Party, Boring Party.

    • At least the TP'ers didn't fall for that selfishness-is-a-virtue pseudo-philosophical bullshit. Wait. What?

    • Beck_is_Trig

      Yes and all the simplified ways to explain everything as well. "Moochers and Looters", indeed. I once listened to a compelling argument as to why wingnuts accept the bible but not science: complexity. Science requires thought, self awareness and the ability to test ones belief and the other tells you a guy lived for three days in a whale and you accept it as LITERAL fact. Ayn Rand's philosophy was banal, puerile and ignored about 99% of reality with its conclusions (especially the part about rich people being entirely self made accomplished by being animalistic and selfish) but it was simple to understand. There's not any convulted concepts like the interlocking nature of society or civilization essentially existing to reject Objectivism, either. No, it just says be a cruel, selfish asshole and social Darwinism will reward you. Of course it also leaves out this philosophy ONLY applies to spoiled rich inheritors like the Koch brothers because every other person is a small fish for them to devour, either. Anyway…Randites are completely immature morons, essentially.

  • HempDogbane

    Alan, is that you? Who are these terrible people?

  • Tommmcattt

    Ha! Commented too soon. Too bad you will never see what I wrote!

    I thought he was talking about downloading an Ayn Rand novel, you see, and…

    Never mind.

  • Former Intern Benjamin, iffin' he has any sense Ayn's fiscal bartender Alan Greenspan will be offering you a job in 3, 2, 1….

  • Fare la Volpe

    But will it have peer review?

    • You say this as I am grading a paper in which a student passes a blog post off as a piece of peer-reviewed scholarship.

      • That would earn him or her a PhD at Trump or Beck University. And a tenured position at BJU*.
        * Bob Jones University. What did you think I meant?

    • Fare, pier review was at the heart of Ayn's sense criticism, complete with cement galoshes and a concrete overcoat. Particularly short piers with long walks for those whore dared to even raise an eyebrow regards her vision.

      It appears the one who shall remain nameless has finally awoken from a blessed slumber after last night's bloviation extraordinaire and is again with the fisties.

    • Peace in our time

      Pier review, as in, "toss it off the."

  • elviouslyqueer


    Well played, Frisch. Well played.

  • Native_of_SL_UT

    Are there naked female breasts? Graphic novels without naked female breasts are pointless. They are called comic books, not graphic novels.

  • yes, but where can i get the 'graphic novel on tape?'

  • MiniMencken

    I downloaded it. Now what?

    • Fare la Volpe

      Margarita time!

  • V572 [SSAN]

    I'd like to see Miche1e Bachmann commander the AM airwaves and give a 3-hour, John-Galt-style speech to all of el Rushbo's adherents. They'd fall asleep, of course, and their leased BMWs and Pepsi delivery trucks would all crash. But hey, you can't make an omelette, etc…

  • Pragmatist2

    I would download this but I am afraid that it contains a virus that would turn me into someone who gets their core ideas from an unreadable novel that spouts a philosophy that doesn't withstand three minutes thought.

  • It's like the world's best coloring book!
    Thank you Mr. Frisch.

  • Wow, this article has had 607 views…which I believe is 34 more views than, "Atlas Shrugged: Part I"

  • Callyson

    Benjamin, this was very cool to make this available…free! Ayn must be turning in her grave at the thought of anything with her name on it being *given* away…

  • BarackMyWorld

    Hellz 2 teh yeah~!!!!111

  • ttommyunger

    Ayn Rand. One of the few human beings to actually smell better dead than alive (No breath helped a lot).

  • berkeleyfarm

    I saw this and had to do a quick google search, because today is MY birthday and having AR born on my natal day would just be too gross. The Donald is bad enough Yeah, it's totally random, but just one of those niggling things! Fortunately this appears to just be the "web release" and not That Creature's actual birthday. Whew!

  • MinAgain

    Doing my best Ed McMahon…
