Comics for history nerds

I sort of have this thing for Louis Riel. I didn’t know who he was before I moved to Canada, but then I worked on this big Manitoba archives project, and the Rheostatics have that song, and my friend Brendan has a Louis Riel tattoo over his heart, and then Chester Brown wrote a graphic novel about the guy, and the next thing you know I sort of have a crush on a revolutionary leader who’s been dead for over a century.

All of that is preamble to saying this cartoon about Louis Riel is damn funny. Kate Beaton has a lot of other funny cartoons about history, too. Go see. Oh! And more here.

I look forward to my next opportunity to say, “I’m going to go do some things that aren’t insane and pretend you didn’t say that.”
