Station is not perfect. A pivotal scene is staged in a confusing manner and the dialog seems off in another, but overall this is book worth seeking out. Dont wait for the collection -- buy the single issues so you can read and enjoy now. Read Full Review
Promotional copy from the publisher compares this story to Greg Rucka and Steve Lieber's Whiteout, and I can understand why. Both are murder mysteries set in remote, inaccessible places that limit the movements of the characters. Whiteout is a more compelling read, though. There's more grit and a rawer quality to the setting and characters in that book. Whiteout was interesting before any murder took place, and that doesn't seem to be the case so much here. The tensions among the characters aren't spotlighted until later in the story, after the main plot is already underway. Maybe more of a focus on the characters and the dynamics among them before the story's catalyst might have made this seem like more than a mystery with a novel backdrop. Read Full Review
I love the spirit of the traditional independent comic scene, but books like the Station, to me, seem like a part of an alarming trend towards using the comic book medium as a steppingstone to more lucrative ventures. Admittedly I could be totally wrong here, but the whole time I was reading the Station I couldn't shake the feeling that I was partaking in something that was written for the silver screen by an author who couldn't get a studio to bite on it.
