少年及青少年讀物的超人氣金手筆,他在學時,就以另類的網路漫畫創作發跡,風靡英語世界並拿下各項年度網路漫畫大獎的《恐龍漫畫》(Dinosaur Comics),就是他的原創。他幽默的敘事長才更為《探險活寶》(Adventure Time)、《賈格赫德》(Jughead)、《無敵松鼠妹》(The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl)等動畫的漫畫系列錦上添花,數度榮獲艾斯納獎(Eisner Award),該獎有美國動漫界奧斯卡獎之稱。諾茲的作品幾乎是暢銷保證,2013年他於全球最大募資平臺Kickstarter發起《要活,還是不要活》(To Be or Not To Be)的募資活動,更以一千七百多萬台幣的金額創下當時出版類品項的最高募資紀錄。




“[How to Take Over the World] is full of extremely funny, extremely informative riffs that make for an engrossing frame for very deep dives into knowledge that is esoteric, interdisciplinary, and damned interesting.” —Cory Doctorow on Twitter

“Who among us has never dreamed of living on a secret base, riding around on a dinosaur and holding the Earth’s core hostage? . . . The joy of this book comes from the straight-faced seriousness with which North approaches each scheme. . . . fun and accessible.” —Nature

“Comic book fans will fall hard for this delightfully daffy guidebook. . . . Exuberant, optimistic, and just plain fun, How to Take Over the World will both surprise and delight.” —Esquire

“An eclectic journey, full to the brim with North’s trademark sarcasm and humor. An excellent starting point for anyone interested in learning more about cutting edge science or becoming a supervillain.” —Booklist

“Witty and deviously delightful. I never knew reading about becoming a supervillain could feel so wholesome!” —Simone Giertz

“How to Take Over the World isn’t just an amazing how-to manual, it’s a fun, insightful look into our place on the planet and in time. I found myself thinking about it for weeks after. Honestly, I think it changed my life!” —Chip Zdarsky, writer forDaredevil, Spider-Man: Life Story, andHoward the Duck

“This book is so brilliant that it’s frankly suspicious. Nobody should be surprised when Ryan North inevitably does take over the world. If this wildly entertaining, whip-smart, and hilarious book is his confession, he’s more than capable of it. And now, thanks to reading it… so am I.” —Elan Mastai, author of All Our Wrong Todays

“I can attest that How to Take Over the World is both a) filled with actual science (including linguistics!) and b) hilarious.” —Gretchen McCulloch, New York Times–bestselling author ofBecause Internet

“How to Take Over the World lays out a hilarious, but totally factual, blueprint for all the ways aspiring supervillains could seize power, control minds and dominate the earth. It’s a little dangerous, but all in good fun—so long as Pinky and the Brain don’t catch wind of it." —BookPage
