Ten Years of Louis Riel


This September marks a handful of tenth anniversaries here at D+Q, including Chester Brown’s Louis Riel. Look at this fabulous cover that Chester came up with for the anniversary edition. Chester has always had a great color sensibility and aesthetic, but does it get better than this?

Look for the green-faced Louis in stores by mid-September, just about ten years from the date of its original publication.
