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.

A shambolic second episode, which is totally saved by the awesomeness of our amazing guest, the eternally brilliant A.P. Furtado, and his incredible radio voice.

Inspired by the work of Moebius and Bode in the Heavy Metal magazines he used to read as a teenager, Tony Furtado has been creating uncompromisingly excellent comics in his own unique and beautifully drawn style since the before the dawn of webcomics.

Mr. Furtado tells of his experiences as an independent comics creator, while Adam and Chuck dream that someday, somehow, they might learn to be half as cool as he is.
