A.D: New Orleans After the Deluge Getting Some Much Deserved Attention

With the two year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina upon us, artist Josh Neufeld's insightful illustrated account of the disaster is getting some well-deserved attention from the mainstream press. The L.A Times has an excellent article on A.D: New Orleans After the Deluge, which is currently being published for free as an online serial at Smith Magazine. New readers will want to start from the beginning - once you wrap your head around the high-intensity prologue, you'll find it next to impossible not to keep reading till you run out of chapters. Lucky for us, Chapter Six just went up.

I really do believe A.D is destined to be one of the great nonfiction comics, and should grab anyone who saw the greatest natural disaster of our time unfold two years ago. For all of us who were stunned by the images on TV during those long days, A.D. offers a chance to understand the larger-than-life events on an individual level. I'm sure we'll be hearing more about it in the next several months.

Hey Anna, Thanks for the swell write-up of "A.D.", and of course for your video interview some months back. One small correction, though: a book collection of "A.D." is forthcoming, but definitely not this November! I won't even be finished writing & drawing it this November. You may be getting "A.D." mixed up with "Shooting War," which ran on SMITH in 2006 and is finally being released as a book this November. Anyway, thanks again, and keep reading "A.D." Maybe we'll have a book by November 2008...

Hey Josh! You know, I thought two-months from now month seemed improbably soon! I took that bit of info from the Newsarama write-up, which I'm sure had made the mistake you mentioned, getting the release date confused with Shooting War. Anyway, all fixed now.
