This is more than 272 pages of stunning Chester Brown drawings portraying one of the most fascinating stories of revolution North American history has to offer. It’s a groundbreaking piece of art, seriously. This book is as thorough and obsessive as Henry Darger, but without the mental illness. It’s as consistent as Hergé but a lot more honest and heartfelt. It’s perfect, really, and if you have never read a comic novel before, this is definitely the place to start.
