Berlin: City of Stones

Credits: Written and Illustrated by Jason Lutes
Publisher: Drawn & Quarterly

Commentary

Jason Lutes' BERLIN: CITY OF STONES is a work of sprawling scope and elegance that both fulfills the promise of his first work (JAR OF FOOLS) and blazes forward with a confidence and control that's utterly masterful. Drifting with an almost Altman-like whimsy between a small cast of characters in Berlin from September 1928 to May Day, 1929 - writers, artists; workers, mothers; haves and have-nots all come together and fall apart as the terrible shadow of the Third Reich fall across the old Weimar Republic and asserts itself and its power.

BERLIN: CITY OF STONES is an assured and literate work that captures not only a calamitous time, but creates personal portraits of the people living through it.
