Something terrible has happened to the Bay Area. A pipeline explosion has totaled Treasure Island and destroyed the Bay Bridge. At least, that's the official story . . .

    Overall, you would do yourself well to take fifteen minutes to escape from your mundane existence and lose yourself in the pure, unadulterated fantasy Bechko and Hardman deliver with Station to Station. This one takes my pick of the week for its pure fun. Read Full Review

    It's rare nowadays to purchase a comic that has everything you need in one issue. There's no back story, no continuity, and nothing you need to know to jump in and enjoy this tale. That's what makes this book so fun and refreshing. Read Full Review

    Hardman's linework reminds me of Steve Lieber in its extensive detailing, but just a bit scratchier, teasing out hints of a larger world. This is a one-and-done that I hope gets a sequel. Read Full Review

    This was a story assembled from three Dark Horse Presents issues, and Im glad they collected it into one issue. Frankly, I wouldnt mind seeing this book expand into a mini-series to see where else it goes given that the creative team has a great sense of pace and design. The Presents program is one that makes me hopeful for future storytellers to be discovered so we can experience their stories. So, pick this up and lose yourself for ten minutes, its worth a read.

    One shots are a hard to grade due to the enclosed nature of their stories. Yet, Station to Station benefits from having breakneck pacing. The story fires on all cylinders. Hardmans choice of paneling allows the story to capture all of the right moments, without focusing on the less interesting ones. As a result youll be reading this one shot hoping for more from the team. With an ongoing series used to explore the ideas on display here Bechko and Hardman could have a real winner on their hands. I cannot wait to see what the team brings us next. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Vince Ostrowski Aug 30, 2013

    "Station to Station" is a quality one-off story, even though it might not be very substantial. It expands on the most basic storytelling strengths of the Bechko/Hardman pairing, while not being particularly flashy or deep. It's just good, solid homage work. Definitely worth your time if you're as big a fan of big rubber monster movies or weird science horror stories as Bechko & Hardman seem to be. Read Full Review

    If these two do something long-form in the future, I would read it on the promise presented here alone. But promise alone does not a perfect product make. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Joey Caswell Sep 1, 2013

    Although this book often felt like it bit off more than it should have for a one-shot story, Station to Station definitely brought a sense of the epic to single issue story-telling. The entire book is incredibly action-packed and fast paced, and there are some tremendous ideas presented throughout. The writing could have been better organized and accompanied with more explanation, but again, this is a result of trying to tackle such a big story with so few pages. Read Full Review
