Berlin: City of Smoke, Book Two

Berlin: City of Smoke is an incredible historical graphic novel. Set between May 1929 and September 1930, it brings together a diverse set of perspectives in a politically and socially turbulent Germany. Jason Lutes is remarkably successful at creating fascinating characters and fleshing out worldviews in a way that makes the story both engrossing and information-rich. The wait of 8 years between volumes in this trilogy has certainly been rewarding.
