Ryan North's Passion For Dinosaurs Bleeds Into Unbeatable Squirrel Girl (SPOILERS)

A previous version of this article mistakenly assumed that Dinosaur Comics had ended, considering it began nearly 15 years ago. Dang, Ryan. You're a dedicated guy.

Ryan North began his comic book notoriety with the webcomic Dinosaur Comics, featuring a series of images of dinosaurs in a fixed position — the only change, strip to strip, was the dialogue. Challenging the assumption that those who cannot draw cannot make comics, he has published more than 2700 of them to much acclaim.

The first Dinosaur Comics strip by Ryan North.

Currently, the writer of Marvel's Eisner-winning Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, at San Diego Comic-Con some lucky Marvel readers got a peek at something to come in Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #23. Which sees a revived Ultron — but not the one that has been seen in Avengers or Secret Empire recently, bonded with Hank Pym.

Instead, it's a piece of Ultron in the Savage Land that, Transformers-style, has chosen to reflect the lifeforms around it.

So we have dinosaur Ultron. And, for Ryan North, more love for dinosaurs in comics…
