So as to not repeat myself this is a return to the U.S. Marshall (Carrie Stetko) banished to Antarctica who has grown fond of it yet finds herself embroiled in something no longer local but international. I found the tale fun enough but nowhere near as good as the first novel which probably explains why a third novel in the series never came out. The first novel had such an intricate and interesting clue trail in a new setting and this second novel just took a basic idea and tried to almost turn it into a mini action film in Antarctica.
Greg Rucka returns as the writer and once more Steven Liever does the artwork. Be warned that it's black and white with focuses on shadows and shading as well as flat out whiteness when covering the landscape of Antarctica.
It won the 2000 Eisner Award for Best Limited Series (Wiki source).
ARTWORK PRESENTATION: B to B plus; STORY/PLOTTING: B minus; CHARACTERS/DIALOGUE: B minus to B; OVERALL GRADE: B minus to B; WHEN READ: mid July 2012.
One of the reasons I recommend <em>Whiteout</em> so strongly is because once you've read it, you will be prepared for its sequel, <em>Melt</em>. Carrie is back in the world, but convinced to go back to Antarctica and take one more case, which involves shipments of weapons (weapons are illegal for the general populace to have in Antarctica). Rucka seems to have a slightly more solid handle on his characters here, and he puts them in some very interesting situations. A truly good book, this, well worth checking out for lovers of crime fiction, whether it's in graphic-novel mode or not. ****
