SynopsisFrom America’s border-towns to Istanbul’s Taksim Square, Station’s Lost is the story of two friends, Tony Fitzpatrick and Stan Klein, and their commonalities and divergent paths in an ever-expanding world. Tony takes us through his childhood as a rebellious Catholic schoolboy obsessed with superheroes, reading MAD Magazine, and meeting Chester Gould through his adult understanding of the superhero mythos that leads him to strike out in search of the everyday superhero in the world via a journey to Istanbul. In Istanbul, where the people are Muslim and supposed to be “other”, Tony finds many of the same cast of characters that he knows and loves from Chicago. And they make a great time of it. From Tony’s encounter with a grumpy, smoke-free French man in the hotel pool, to the bombing of Taksim Square mere moments after Tony was headed home to O’Hare, the moments are funny, poignant, and thoughtful.
