: New: Comic Report: Berlin

Do you remember way back 20 years ago when you were reading comics and there was this lovely stark black-and-white comic "Berlin" by Jason Lutes? About Berlin in the Weimar republic? Street fights between Nazis and Reds, intellectuals tut-tutting at chaos, families torn apart, artists arguing art… and all drawn so beautifully that you keep reading despite the ongoing bummer? That comic recently finished its loooong run—20-something issues made over 20-something years. If you've been thinking "Well, I'll wait for the collection to come out instead of reading individual issues" (or perhaps thought it at some point but then lost track after a decade or whatever), now is your chance!

Yes, it's spooky how much less relevant the subject matter seemed 20 years ago. Tut tut, I suppose.
