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.

Synopsis:

A stunning "New York Times"-bestselling graphic novel that makes plain both the undeniable horrors and humanitarianism triggered by Hurricane Katrina. "A.D." follows six New Orleanians from the hours before Katrina strikes to its aftermath.

About the Author

Josh Neufeld is the writer/artist of the Xeric Award-winning graphic travelogue A Few Perfect Hours (And Other Stories from Southeast Asia & Central Europe). Shortly after Hurricane Katrina, Neufeld spent three weeks as an American Red Cross volunteer in Biloxi, Mississippi. The blog entries he kept about that experience turned into a self-published book, Katrina Came Calling, which in turn led to A.D. Neufeld works primarily in the realm of nonfiction comics. His work has been featured in The Vagabonds, Keyhole, and Titans of Finance, as well as in numerous comics anthologies, newspapers, magazines, and literary journals. He is a longtime artist for Harvey Pekars American Splendor, and his art has been exhibited in gallery and museum shows in the United States and Europe. Neufeld lives in Brooklyn, New York, with his wife, the writer Sari Wilson, and their daughter.

Jamnola65, January 20, 2011 (view all comments by Jamnola65)
Stark and graphically realistic, the full portrait of the devastation of the wake of Katrina is deeply & unflatteringly displayed in all accounts and realms.
Why did New Orleans 'go Under'? And, why were so many lives taken during an epic storm of surreally and unbelievably massive chaotic demise?
Not since The Civil War were so many casualties bound by one populated area.
Over 2,000 lives were lost during a mesh of miscommunication, faulty preparations, improper weather information, and for The City that Care Forgot, a tumultuous bludgeon to its' culture, character, and charisma.
Is a city that so crucially lost so much ever to be filled with its' charm and joyous wonder of life? Hard knocks shatter communities and peoples within the communities, and Katrina left nothing but shame to be pinned on the Corps of Engineers, and this city called Nouvelle Orleans.
