The bestselling graphic novel on Canada''s infamous folk hero is back in a paperback edition with a new cover by Chester Brown. Louis Riel: A Comic-Strip Biography is the book that launched the graphic novel medium in Canada. Brown received the Harvey Award for best writing and best graphic novel, and made several Best of the Year lists. Publishers Weekly hailed the book as a "contender for best graphic novel ever." Chester Brown reinvents the comic book medium to create a historical biography on Louis Riel. He crafts a compelling and meticulous retelling of the charismatic 19th-century Metis leader, regarded by some as a martyr and by others as a treacherous murderer. Canadian history at its best, Louis Riel: A Comic-Strip Biography is entertaining and accessible for all ages. "If you love to read a gripping story, if you are awed by the talent of an artist, then look no further: Chester Brown''s Louis Riel is comix history in the making, and with it, history never looked so good." -Globe and Mail Ages 14 and up
Chester Brown (Toronto) is the author of I Never Liked You, The Little Man, The Playboy and Yummy Fur. He is an illustrator for the New York Times Magazine and the New Yorker.
