Newsweek on A.D.: “Authentic and Powerful”

August 7th, 2008 by Larry Smith  

ad-13image.jpgA.D. is profiled in this week’s issue of Newsweek, in print in its “Periscope” section. “A.D.” is raw and painful,” writes Jessica Bennett, “down to the detailed depictions of ruined homes and the frenzied dialogue among friends.” The magazine runs one of my personal favorite images that Josh Neufeld has drawn over the course of 13 intense chapters, the scene of a horrified and confused crowd at the Convention Center, wondering why help is not on the way. Read the Newsweek story here. Stay tuned for the final chapter of A.D. on SMITH in two weeks, followed by a vastly expanded version from Pantheon Books in summer 2009.
