A.D. free pdf "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.
