Entering Chester Brown's red-light district

Entering Chester Brown's red-light district - The Globe and Mail - James Adams:

Apr. 30, 2011 - "Libertarian Party candidate for the federal riding of Trinity-Spadina ... Chester Brown is [not] expecting to be Ottawa-bound Tuesday morning.... Brown ran for the same party in the same riding in 2008, earning 490 votes. 'Pathetic, of course,' he admits.... 'But pretty good for a libertarian.'

"Brown does, in fact, have a pretty substantial following; just not as a politician. Among the Canadian mainstream, he’s famous as the creator of the astonishingly successful illustrated biography of M├ętis leader Louis Riel. Originally released as a series of pamphlets in 1999, Louis Riel has gone on to sell more than 50,000 copies in the U.S. and Canada since its publication as a book in 2003 by Montreal’s Drawn & Quarterly. It earned Brown two Harveys (comicdom’s Oscars)."
