After the Deluge: Chapter 5 of the Katrina Webcomic Is Now Online
If you haven't been reading A.D: After the Deluge, you're missing out on an amazing work of art.
A.D. is true story of five New Orleans residents and their experiences during Hurricane Katrina. It gives readers an intimate view of why some of these people stayed, why some left, and how they all got through one of the worst natural disasters in U.S history. When this eventually gets published as a graphic novel, it's gonna be a huge deal; read the comic and you'll see why.
A.D is currently available for free as a serialized webcomic, hosted by Smith Magazine. Author Josh Neufeld just released the fifth chapter, and things are getting rough. The last four chapters have been about getting to know the characters, foreshadowing the storm, and seeing what course of action everyone would choose as the hurricane approached. But now in the fifth chapter, the magnitude of the disaster is clear, and as a reader, you know things are only going to get worse.
