About Ryan


My name is Ryan North! I am a dude living in Toronto, Canada, and I write all sorts of things. You can contact me if you want! You can read my journal if you want! You can follow me on Twitter if you want! What I am saying is that there are options. Hey, I've got a Wikipedia entry too! I look like this:

I do lots of writing online, and also I've made a whole bunch of books. Perhaps you are... intrigued??

Bio

Ryan North is the writer responsible for Dinosaur Comics, the Eisner and Harvey award-winning Adventure Time comics, the #1 bestselling anthology series Machine of Death and the New York Times bestselling and Eisner-award winning Unbeatable Squirrel Girl series for Marvel. He's turned Shakespeare into NYT-bestselling choose-your-own-path books that allows YOU to play through and make the decisions for Shakespeare's heroes, which is absolutely a great idea and won't cause them to get into trouble three choices in. His latest book, HOW TO INVENT EVERYTHING, is nothing less than a complete cheat sheet for civilization. He lives in Toronto, and once messed up walking his dog so badly it made the news.
