Obie Sighting: Josh Neufeld ’89

The New York Times book review recently published an article about a graphic novel created by Oberlin Art History major Josh Neufeld, class of 1989.  The book, “A.D.: New Orleans After the Deluge,”  follows the stories of 7 real-life survivors of Hurricane Katrina.  Josh Neufeld was living in New York when Katrina hit and felt compelled to go to New Orleans and volunteer with the Red Cross.   His experiences and the people he met while working there were translated into graphic-novel form, a medium Neufeld has published in previously.   The graphic novel was originally published online at but the expanded printed version was published by Pantheon.
