Steve Ditko

Drawings from Strange Tales No. 138, from November 1965. Ditko was a devotee of Ayn Rand. There’s one line in “Strange and Stranger” that tidily sums up the biography’s “big” angle: “By immersing himself in Rand’s teachings, Ditko started down a path that, ironically, would lead him away from riches and fame.” 'Strange and Stranger'/Fantagraphics Books
