In discussing Chester Brown’s “comic-strip biography” Louis Riel, this paper highlights the narratologically perceivable strategies through which Brown complicates the depiction of the character of Louis Riel. Focusing on the execution of Thomas Scott, the paper discusses how Brown’s use of aural and visual focalization, narrated vs. narrative time and comics-specific engagements with his reader makes the reader sympathize with Scott, to the detriment of his opinion of Riel. Interpreting Louis Riel from a narratological perspective highlights Brown’s underlying insistence on the narratedness of his biography.
