Louis Riel

Louis Riel (1844-1885) was a Canadian politician, founder of Manitoba and leader of the Métis people. He also led two resistance movements against the Canadian government. From 1999-2003 cartoonist Chester Brown created a series based on Riel’s life. The stories has later been collected in a book simply called “Louis Riel”, and is a fantastic story… a bit like a dark version of Tintin.
