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.

There's a whole lot going on here and the being overwhelmed is probably the best sentiment to feel as you page through. The magnitude of the damage and the loss and the madness is palpable here as you follow different people who either stayed or left and what happened to them afterwards. What really stands out is who is home, who isn't home, and whether or not those who got back actually are home.

In A.D., author and artist Josh Neufeld mines blogs and interviews to weave together multiple accounts of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast after Hurricane Katrina. Most of the people whose stories he includes in this graphic format account stayed in the city through the flood, though a few were evacuated. All but one lost everything, and that resident, a doctor whose house was above flood level, opened a clinic in his home. Neufeld's drawings and the comments he transcribes - occasionally including strong language - powerfully represent both the emotional impact and the material losses of the disaster.
