A.D.: New Orleans After the Deluge
is a masterful portrait of a city under siege. Cartoonist Josh Neufeld depicts seven extraordinary true stories of survival in the days leading up to and following Hurricane Katrina.

Here we meet Denise, a counselor and social worker, and a sixth-generation New Orleanian; “The Doctor,” a proud fixture of the French Quarter; Abbas and Darnell, two friends who face the storm from Abbas’ s family-run market; Kwame, a pastor's son just entering his senior year of high school; and the young couple Leo and Michelle, who both grew up in the city. Each is forced to confront the same wrenching decision–whether to stay or to flee.

As beautiful as it is poignant, A.D. presents a city in chaos and shines a bright, profoundly human light on the tragedies and triumphs that took place within it.

Shortly after Hurricane Katrina hit, JOSH NEUFELD spent three weeks as an American Red Cross volunteer in Biloxi, Mississippi. He is a longtime artist for Harvey Pekar’s American Splendor, and his art has been exhibited in galleries and museums in the United States and Europe. He lives in Brooklyn, New York.

 

 

Neufeld's images of New Orleans and New Orleanians are powerful and immediate . . . It's that kind of painstaking detail that makes "A.D." such a moving book -- real people, real stories, told with sympathy and smarts, giving it an immediate place among the Katrina classics. Neufeld's comic style–larger than life at times, but always human in scale–is perfect for these stories of survival and endurance.
