    someone said before, “A.D.: New Orleans makes Katrina real in a way that other media have not.” - I strongly agree.
    beautiful work Josh…a ton of care and attention is clearly evident in every panel.

  2. Dean Haspiel

    Knowing the unflinching horror that’s about to be unleashed by the broken levee makes this calm episode that more exquisitely heartbreaking.

    I didn’t lose anything in the hurricane. I had only lived here a year. I’ve got no reason to cry, but reading this makes me feel it again.

  4. Tim Hamilton

    Lookin good.
    The story, not their situation.

  5. Dean Haspiel

    Page 12 is chilling. Perfectly conveyed.

    Thanks for that final chuckle. People need to find humor in the midst of horror.

    Thanks, Dean (times two)! And I appreciate your picking out page 12. Given the limitations of the color pallette, the candle-lit effect, and my art skills, I’m particularly pleased with how it came out.

    Very good stuff, Josh. I’ve been watching Spike Lee’s ‘When the Levee Broke’ - it makes a good double act with your comic (which manages more of an ‘in the midst of it’ feeling). And Dean’s right - the buildup of tension in this segment is palpable, knowing what’s coming up…

    My thoughts go out to all of you from New Orleans.

    I was recently in NO, as an emergency prepardness coordinator for the state I live in. The damage far surpasses what the media has portrayed. I felt sick travelling through the lower 9th Ward and St. Bernard’s Parish. Even the Wal Mart SuperCenter is still closed…

    Those of us in ER field in other states couldn’t help, because we needed to be at home, so we may not understand what you went through. Good God, this is the United States. It just shouldn’t happen.

    I think it’s great that your showing everyone’s story about the hurricane how impacked some people and the feeling towards every part of each one’s experience.

    [...] the same way those other stories do. In contrast, in the online version of A.D., Chapter 7, “The Bowl Effect, Part I” is entirely reconstructed from my conversations with Hamid, one of the two subjects of the [...]

    Doing a project for my English class, I found the attached link, which largely aided my understanding of A.D. The website talked about the geographical characteristics that make up New Orleans. It featured an elevation chart of N.O. which compared the elevation of certain parts of New Orleans to sea level. The map showed that a decent portion of N.O.is below sea level. This explained the the bowl effect that Neufeld mentions on page 92. This enabled me to better understand that Darnell and Abbas’ situation, and made me realize that things could have only gotten worse for them. I guess you could say that this website made me truly understand what these people were going through.
