Louis Riel: A Comic Strip Biography
To celebrate the tenth anniversary of Louis Riel's publication, Drawn and Quarterly is reissuing the book as a deluxe paperback, with a new introduction contextualizing the work's importance and the original pamphlet covers collected and reproduced in full color. As well, this edition will provide an overview of Brown's creative process and will include rare, never before published panel studies from the work. Louis Riel tells the story of the charismatic, and perhaps mad, nineteenth-century Metis leader whose struggle to win rights for his people led to violent rebellion on the nation's western frontier. Chester Brown's carefully researched, exquisitely illustrated, and much-lauded biography goes deep into the myths and the facts about this man, whose place in Canadian history is troubled.
