Louis Riel: a Comic-Strip Biography

I know very little of Canadian history, so reading this excellent work by Chester Brown I was very surprised. He has done an excellent job of both research and storytelling, and it is hard to imagine a historical character more interesting than Louis Riel. It makes me want to learn more about exactly how Canada was settled. This is such a different work than I Never Liked You that I wouldn't have guessed the same person would have written both stories.

  1. Chester Brown is extremely talented. One of the best comic book artists...well...ever. The Louis Riel story was probably the best thing he's done.
