"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!
“Fans already know that Baboushka is an all-action modern pulp heroine,” said Johnston. “But we hope people new to her adventures (especially fans of Atomic Blonde, ahem) will get on board the roller coaster ride of GHOST STATION ZERO, because we're turning it up to 11, cutting the brake lines, and mixing our metaphors all over the place. New villains, new gadgets, new plots to take over the world...all in a day's work for Baboushka, who of course looks fabulous while doing it.”
GHOST STATION ZERO #1 Cover A by Chankhamma (Diamond code: JUN170657) and Cover B by Becky Cloonan (Diamond code: JUN170658) arrive in comic book stores Wednesday, August 2nd. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, July 10th.
