National Post Features Chester Brown & LOUIS RIEL

“National Post Features Chester Brown & LOUIS RIEL” / The National Post / The National Post / November 6, 2003

"Louis Riel is one of the most resonant names in Canadian history; Little Orphan Annie is an icon of American popular culture. Although both Riel and Orphan Annie are famous, few would discuss these renowned figures in the same breath. It is part of the peculiar genius of Chester Brown's new book, Louis Riel: A Comic-Strip Biography (Drawn & Quarterly), that it fuses a historical subject with a pop-cultural approach, using the visual language of an Orphan Annie adventure to dramatize a pivotal event in our nation's past."
