The Original ‘Dinosaur Comics’
We all know and love Dinosaur Comics, right? That wonderful little strip started in 2003 from that Canadian fellow Ryan North that takes the same images of dinosaurs and uses them over and over again as they engage in humorous conversation?
Ah, but did you know that in prehistoric times (okay, seventeen years earlier) another Canadian funny guy, Ty Templeton, created the exact same strip?
Ryan didn’t believe me either when I told him about it at the MoCCA festival this weekend, but it’s true– we have proof. From Critters #3:
See? Same dialogue, same xeroxing– Ryan’s been copying dinosaurs even longer than he thought he had.
(Note: we aren’t actually accusing Ryan of copying any more than he already copies; so please don’t delete our Project Wonderful account, Mr. North, sir.)
