"A comic of impressive scope. One of the appealing things about Berlin is Lutes' love of the comic medium. His story is full of novel combinations of text and pictures, shuttling (a la Wings of Desire) between impassive bird's-eye cityscapes and dairy-like internal monologues. -San Francisco Chronicle Book Review
