Boston Globe “Grafix Americana” roundup
Carlo Wolff features A.D. in his summer GN roundup, running today in the Boston Globe. Wolff calls A.D. despairing, and nurturing and goes on to write:
Josh Neufeld’s "A.D." intertwines the stories of seven Hurricane Katrina survivors redefining their relationship to their deeply wounded home, New Orleans. Shortly after Katrina struck, Neufeld spent three weeks as a Red Cross volunteer in Biloxi, a Mississippi city also devastated by the storm. “A.D.’’ is the outgrowth of blog entries stemming from his experience. The dialogue is convincingly vernacular; the characterizations ring true; the revisionist history is credible; and the double-page spreads will make you want to take shelter from the storm. It’s due out in mid-August, in time for Katrina’s fourth anniversary.
In the same piece, Wolff also reviews Syncopated, as well as books by Gabrielle Bell, Adrian Tomine, and Seth!
