“Katrina, Texas”

A friend tipped me to “Katrina, Texas,” a four-page comic book story about a real-life New Orleans Hurricane Katrina survivor. Sound familiar? :->

This is the story of Eartherine Odem and her escape from the flooded 6th Ward to the Convention Center and then Austin, Texas. It’s told to Yaphet Smith, with terrific illustrations by Frank Stockton and Mike Neumann. Check it out here.
