I am a cartoonist who
works primarily in the realm of nonfiction comics.
I'm the writer/artist of the New
York Times bestseller (and Eisner and Harvey Award nominee) A.D:
New Orleans After the Deluge (Pantheon Books, 2009), a nonfiction graphic
novel about Hurricane Katrina. Shortly after Hurricane Katrina, I spent
three weeks as an American Red Cross volunteer in Biloxi, Mississippi.
My most recent project is The Influencing Machine (W.W. Norton, 2011), written by Brooke Gladstone, co-host of the syndicated radio program On The Media.
I'm the writer/artist of the Xeric Award-winning comix travelogue A Few Perfect Hours (and Other Stories from Southeast Asia & Central Europe). I was a longtime artist for Harvey Pekar’s American Splendor. I live in Brooklyn, New York, with my wife and daughter.
