Comics artist Josh Neufeld met and talked with survivors of Hurricane Katrina while volunteering with the Red Cross in 2005. The result of these conversations is the graphic chronicle A.D.: New Orleans After the Deluge, a critically-acclaimed collection of first-person accounts from the Crescent City's various cultures, races, income groups, and neighborhoods. S.W. Conser spoke with Josh during the 2009 Wordstock Literary Festival.
