Appreciation for Dinosaur Comics

Derik Badman writes an appreciation for Ryan North's Dinosaur Comics:

If there’s any webcomic that fits into a Oubapo mold, it is Ryan North’s Dinosaur Comics. North decided to do a webcomic, but he couldn’t draw. Instead of following the Trondheim path of learning to draw while making a comic, North took some dinosaur clip art, put it into panels, and started writing dialogue. The strip follows what the Oubapo would call “iconographic repetition.” Each strip has the exact same images.

Badman is the creator of the webcomic Maroon.
