A wide-ranging, career-spanning interview with Ryan North, in which we get to learn all about the creation of Dinosaur Comics, Ryan’s move into published comics such as Adventure Time for Boom Studios and Squirrel Girl for Marvel. We also talk about To Be or Not To Be: That is the Adventure, Ryan’s Shakespeare-based choose-your-own-adventure illustrated novel, which was the most successful “publishing” project ever on Kickstarter. Ryan is also the inventor and developer of the ingenious web advertising platform Project Wonderful. A truly brilliant, witty and inventive guy, who has build a very successful career out of his work in webcomics.

I must admit that I did not know much about Ryan’s work going into this interview. Of course I knew about Dinosaur Comics, but as someone who is much more focused on the art side of comics, I rather quickly dismissed it as a cute gag, and not really the kind of comics I wanted to spend my time on. But of course over the years I did come to become dimly aware of its brilliance. So I’m eternally grateful to Adam Prosser for getting Ryan to come on the show. It really was a huge pleasure talking to him. He is clearly a highly intelligent, kind, generous and incredibly witty person who impressed me no end.
