Interview With Ryan North
Excerpt from interview:
Dinosaur Comics has been called a constrained comic. Do you feel this description is valid or that all comics are technically constrained comics in their own way?
Well, I mean, we're all constrained by the limits of the medium, our imagination, the span of human life. I think it's fair and meaningful to say that Dinosaur Comics is constrained, because with the same pictures everyday, there are some things I can't do (for example: change the pictures). But if you look at the layout and how it's used, it's super flexible, so I don't feel constrained. I can add "LATER:" above a panel to change the visual narrative of the strip, and when I sit down to write a comic, at least I'm never facing a blank sheet of paper, right?
