Comics reporting

There's really no limit to what authors are doing with comics and graphic novels: They're sharing history, they're creating history, they're making the inaccessible accessible, they're informing, they're encouraging struggling readers to read, and they're giving voices to the voiceless. Not a bad list of accomplishments. Well, you can add "reporting with a social conscience" to the list. Josh Neufeld has created A.D. New Orleans: After the Deluge, a serialized webcomic published by SMITH magazine that shares some of the experiences of Katrina in a real yet refreshing way. It's now available in book format.
