Jason Lutes

Jason Lutes is an acclaimed cartoonist. After graduating from Rhode Island School of Design in 1991, he began publishing minicomics with Penny Dreadful and, starting in 1993, the weekly comic “Jar of Fools,” published in The Stranger in Seattle. By 1995, he was the art director of the paper, but by 1996 he had left to become a full-time cartoonist. Lutes began publishing his twenty-two-part comic, Berlin, set at the end of the Weimar Republic. The comics have been collected and published as Berlin: City of Stones, Berlin: City of Smoke, and the final and new installment Berlin: City of Light. His work has won him a number of awards--most recently the prestigious Inkpot Award at San Diego Comic-Con--and he teaches at the Center for Cartoon Studies in Vermont.
