Miss Elsie’s House

Miss Elsie’s House is a conceptual comic book about the women of Storyville, New Orleans written by me and illustrated by my good friend Jessica Jarvinen.  The project came about because I was interested in exploring different ways of archaeologically-informed storytelling and decided to use my own dissertation research as a topic.  In the book, five women with diverse backgrounds come together and interact in a fictional brothel house while they prepare for work.  An introduction to the historic Storyville community and creator statements are included.  Please feel free to contact us with comments, questions, or critique.
