In “Hero Complex,” the arts-geek blog of the L.A. Times, Josh Neufeld reflects on his experience of reporting, writing, and illustrating A.D.: New Orleans After the Deluge for the past year and a half. His short essay will also appear in the print edition of the paper later this week.
Earlier this month, one of A.D.’s real-life characters, Leo McGovern, wrote a guest post on what it felt like to have his story told via a comic, and his life after Katrina—and now Gustav. Last year, Larry Smith recorded a short interview with Leo and his wife Michelle about what it felt like to lose everything.
Finally, next year, an expanded A.D. book comes out from Pantheon Books. Thanks for everyone’s great comments, clicks, and support throughout this intense and wonderful project.
