"Ghost Stations" are abandoned Soviet bases from the Cold War, long forgotten and useless...or so people think! When an EON agent goes missing on the trail of a ghost station in the Swiss mountains, Mr. Clay turns to crime-boss-turned-blackmailed-international-superspy BABOUSHKA to investigate-and what she finds is EXPLOSIVE!

    Guns, explosions, visiting exotic locales, and a race to uncover military secrets long thought buried. Thats what readers are getting with the start of Ghost Station Zero, and its a heavy serving of action, alongside eye-popping art to boot! This is sure to be a great sequel to Johnston and Chankhammas first Baboushka series, and is a great homage to the spy genre! Read Full Review

    Knowing how hard it is to match the motion of action cinema, handling those smaller moments of character-focused action is what could make Ghost Station Zero something truly special. Read Full Review

    Carrying a female lead, GHOST STATION ZERO #1 is the second mission of the CODENAME: BABOUSHKA series. With a high-intensity opening, this issue's primary failing is a lack of character depth. However, with an interesting protagonist and plot, it is worthy of past spy thrillers. Read Full Review

    Overall, if you're either looking for a seemingly direct James Bond formula,you've never heard of James Bond, or are willing to stick with the series to see if the character develops her own identity, then Ghost Station Zero may work for you. On the basis of this issue as a standalone, there is definite room for improvement. Read Full Review

    In the end, this was a fun first issue to Baboushka’s second adventure. Though I had my reservations with some of the art and a by-the-book plot, I’m still interested to see where this goes. Read Full Review

    Ghost Station Zero #1 is what is, a formulaic spy story and I can't really fault it for that. However, it really doesn't do anything noteworthy or to keep my attention. Perhaps eventually, it will get to the point where it can do something unique to the spy genre but as of now, I really wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Read Full Review
