( a note about the "Astro Boy hair." Apparently Chester redrew a bunch of pages when he collected the whole book after it had already been serialized. The design of Louis Riel's hair morphed throughout the story, and that was one of the things he went back and changed to have a consistent design of the character. Sammy Harkham refers to it in an interview, "he had to go back and put the Astro Boy hair in." I'm blogging way too much here. )

Astro Boy Hair
Chester Brown is supposed to be in Seattle this Thursday, I think me and Nenn are gunna go. I just started to read Louis Riel this week, and I'm feelin' it. I guess I was put off by the fact that Mr. Brown talks about how he tried to make an emotionless book, and just present the information, which is a contrast to what initially attracted me to him. But I just finished part 1 today and I'm totally engaged and excited to read more. I'm blogging! This book is such old news, read the new one ya doofs!
