The Berlin Project

Jason Lutes and his new collection of Berlin originals from peers and students.

This fall, the third and final volume of Jason Lutes’s epic Berlin trilogy is being released (through Drawn and Quarterly). It is a big accomplishment and rightly deserves some hearty congratulations. To celebrate, Jason’s coworker and fellow CCS teacher Luke Howard ′13 pulled together a super secret project where over of Jason’s peers and students drew their own version of more than the first 6 chapters of Berlin. Keep an eye out online—lots of contributors (159!) have been posting their work, which is especially interesting when they include the original page.
