Champlain graphic novel? Nice

My e-friend John Grubber, a teacher and graphic artist in Sudbury, is working on a graphic novel of Samuel de Champlain. He's sent along an image from it. John takes his inspiration, he says, from C.W. Jeffreys and Calvin and Hobbes, which sounds like genius, for these must be two artists never before mentioned in association with each other.

The graphic historical novel has weight these days, Chester Brown's Louis Riel of a few years ago being the notable Canadian example.
