Chicago New City Raves About Louis Riel

“Chicago New City Review - Louis Riel” / Chicago New City / Chicago New City Staff / June 16, 2004

In indie comics, Drawn & Quarterly has proven itself as one of the best publishing houses in business... Chester Brown's "Louis Riel" is the biography (with a few liberties taken) of the man who led a rebellion in protest of Canada's annexation of Manitoba. Riel is an often-misunderstood character whose hallucinations of being a prophet are mentioned more often than the stand he took. Brown's writing and artwork have never been better, and "Louis Riel" is a must-have for comics lovers.
