About the Author

Ryan North is a New York Times-bestselling author and cartoonist. His other chooseable-path Shakespeare book is called Romeo and/or Juliet, and you should check that one out too. North is known for his online strip Dinosaur Comics, his critically acclaimed work on Marvel's Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, as well as his Eisner-award winning writing for the Adventure Time comic. He lives in Toronto with his wife Jenn and their dog Noam Chompsky, who is a good boy. Yes he is.


"Reference mixed with irreverence--that's what makes To Be or Not to Be so much fun." --Slate

"An idea that is, by most conventional literary standards, terrible, but pushed so far past terrible that it wraps around like a comet slingshotting around the sun and comes back as utterly brilliant." --Lev Grossman, Time

Praise for other work by Ryan North:

"Romeo and/or Juliet is written with the finest distilled charm and genuine enthusiasm. Entertaining and extremely satisfying." --Kate Beaton, author of Hark! A Vagrant and Step Aside, Pops

"Ryan North's The Best of Dinosaur Comics: 2003-2005 A.D. had me howling with laughter and passing the book around to whomever I could lay hands on to point out particularly good strips. Dinosaur Comics is an unlikely gem of a webcomic." --Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing

"Adventure Time #10 is a spectacular jumping-on point for readers young and old. Even for non-fans, this issue is one of the most captivating comics of the year." --The Onion A.V. Club

"[The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl] was freaking hilarious... it's the closest thing the Marvel universe has to a classic screwball sitcom." --Nerdist

"Machine of Death is a marvelous collection, riddled with intelligence, creative reach, and a frankness that makes the best use of the central gimmick." --Tasha Robinson, The Onion A.V. Club

"This Is How You Die is a brilliantly addictive book that reads like a series of existential, death-obsessed Twilight Zone episodes. Very highly recommended." --Seth Grahame-Smith, author of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
