The Riel World -- I picked up the new issue of Cerebus for the Chester Brown interview (which is good since Dave Sim's Cerebus story in the front of the book is unreadable). Like most of Sim's interviews (thinking of the Alan Moore one specificially), it's definitely of interest and delves deep into the subjects it covers. Now, I knew going in that Dave Sim was certifiable, but Brown lets off a couple of gems that show he's not as far from Sim's planet as I might have otherwise thought.

While much of Brown's output has left me relatively cold, I am interested in Louis Riel because of both its scope and the departure it represents from Brown's usual creative comfort zone. The interview (which is continued next issue, as Cerebus stumbles toward a conclusion, tragically, that no one cares about anymore) has me even more anxious to see the Riel graphic novel, due any day now from Drawn and Quarterly.
