Louis Riel: A Comic-Strip Biography by Chester Brown

Martyr or Madman? The Passionate Rebel History Cant Close The Book On. Is this the future of comics? Respectably penning the dowdy pages of history? Dont be fooled. This is one of the hippest comics going and will be a controversial must-have in 2003. Legendary cartoonist Chester Brown reveals in the dusty closet of Canadian history there are some skeletons that wont stop rattling. To some Louis Riel was one of the founding fathers of a nation but to others he was a murderer who nearly tore a country apart. A man so charismatic he was elected to government twice while in exile with a prize on his head--but so impassioned his dramatic behavior cast serious doubts on his sanity. Riel took on the army, the government, the Queen, and even the Church in the name of freedom. Will Riels visionary democracy ever be enough to defend him from the verdict of history
