A post-Katrina graphic novel of sorts by New Orleans artist Brad Benischek. Part fantasy, part social commentary, Revacuation is a visual response to the tragic and absurd events of year one as they unfolded. Benischek’s raw, immediate style, lush imagination and quirky humor make Revacuation a wholly original addition to the post-K cultural discourse. Beginning in exile and ending with defiant hope for the future, it speaks to the realities and unrealities of the city like no other work.
