A fascinating read. I had mostly known only of Riel in name, and a few details of his life, but not really knew much beyond that. I was pleasently surprised and intrigued by how dramatic the events were. It really opened up many details of the life of this well known Canadian and those Canadians around him. It portrayed well the tension that existed at that time between the French and the English, the Natives and those coming into the new country, the Catholics and the Protestants, and how Riel represented so many of those characteristics which were not what those in power in Ottawa were. Also fascinating was the way that war is portrayed as really anticlimactic and executed by those who really don't know what they are doing. A good read that makes me want to research more into Riel's life. ( )

Louis Riel was a charismatic Metis leader in the late 19th century who led a couple of rebellions as the government of Canada wanted to set up Manitoba and West differently from how the First Nations, Metis, and others already settled there wanted it done. Riel was later hanged. This is a graphic novel that depicts his battle with the government.

It was good. I think the graphic novel format does make it more interesting than I remember it from high school (what little I do remember, and I’ve even been to Batoche, one of the sites in Saskatchewan where he fought). The illustrations were simple, black and white images, but I think they portrayed things well. There is a large notes section at the end that expands what was included in the story. I think the notes took as long or longer to read through than the graphic novel portion itself, but it does add quite a bit of extra info. ( )

A fun jaunt into Canadian history. An informal piece on the life of a Canadian historical figure. Great art and easy to follow. ( )

A chapter of Canadian history I knew nothing about. Very interesting. ( )

As the title suggests, this is a biography of Louis Riel, Canadian politician, prophet and all round nice guy. Louis Riel was the leader of two rebellions against the Canadian government in the 1800s and a spiritual leader for many French Canadians. Yet another great biography from Chester Brown. ( )

In a remarkable move that lets Brown tell the best story and tell the truth, every deviance from recorded history is meticulously footnoted at the end. Deeply researched yet carefully manipulated, the final result goes past history and into literature....Louis Riel," as told by Chester Brown becomes a deeply personal, utterly compelling page-turner in the guise of a 19th-century history book.

 
Louis Riel: A Comic-Strip Biography is yet another landmark work by Chester Brown, an artist considered to be one of the greatest cartoonists living today. This is not hyperbole: each of his major works – Ed the Happy Clown, I Never Liked You, and The Playboy – have broken new artistic ground in their different ways. His work has not only upped the high-water mark for fellow comics artists, but has served as a portal for the medium into mainstream culture....Brown’s black and white art is vibrant and striking – you feel the artist’s hand on the page. Not overly intellectualized yet dense with detail, the book is a wonderful combination of factual resources and powerful art and storytelling.

Because it's unusual for a comic-book to have one, I want to point out that this book does have an index, even if it is a bit limited in scope.
