New Orleans: After the Deluge [VIDEO]

The video to your right is about a new comic book being released by SMITH magazine called A.D. New Orleans: After the Deluge, which is a follow up tois the the web sensation Shooting War. The comic explores the lives of five regular people who endure Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath.The comic, animated and written by Josh Neufeld, the writer/artist who also illustrates for American Splendor. Neufeld volunteered in New Orleans himself after the storm, so he brings his unique perspective to the various storylines. It's great to see the story of Hurricane Katrina still being told, albeit in an untraditional way, because we must not allow Americans to forget how the Bush Administration failed the Gulf Coast and our nation---and how many lives still remain shattered from this experience nearly two years later.
