Steve Ditko's The Avenging World


Recommended Posts


Am not much for being a shill for others, but felt others might be interested in this.

Steve Ditko's lastest collection of work, "The Avenging World" is available from his long-time friend/editor Robin Synder. This is a thick (~230 page) collection of comic work and essays from 40 years of work. Everything is reprinted from previous works, but most were not well known.

Some of the stuff included:

* revision of his "Avenging World" comic book, which is basically Objectivism in comic book format.

* several short pieces from various sources on a wide range of topics.

* several short fiction works that illustrate Objectivist concepts. Only one (H Series: The Screamer) is 'superheroey', tho you might think Libage (Liberty Agent) is too.

* several essays on different topics. Most deal with issues within the comic book industry (who own original art, issues of who created Spider-Man, etc), but others are about other imporant issue ("Violence, the Phoney Issue", etc)

* entire "The Safest Place" comic, originally published in color by Dark Horse

Sadly, I am not aware of any on-line bookstore carrying it. This is a work I think that many in the [Oo]bjectivist world should aware of. I wish the TOC bookstore or even LFB would carry it.

But you can order it from Robin Snyder for $25+ $3 shipping.

Here is his address:

Snyder has several other collections of Ditko work also available that may be of interest.
