Read full description of the books:
This is the tale of a female U.S. Marshall (Carrie Stetko) banished to Antarctica. It's business as usual until a body is found and after a bit of investigation it seems to be murder. What follows is an investigation into a string of murders blended in with the extremely harsh weather of the continent. People get about in the storms on metal wires because you can barely see six inches ahead. In fact, some people have died a few feet away from shelter simply because they couldn't find the door. Don't come out into the storm in wet clothes. A very bad idea. Frostbite is commonplace if you are not extra careful. The center of the continent is so bad that even the wildlife cannot live there. Guess where some of the bases are located? Lots of tidbits about the history of Antarctica included.
Strong female characters are prevalent. The panels play on the black and white shades quite nicely and some of the action scenes “run” almost like an old movie reel. At first I was a bit confused as I hadn't seen something like that done so much in graphic novels but after I got used to it I enjoyed the presentation. The “aha” moments and close ups are nicely done as well.
This was DC writer Greg Rucka's breakout graphic novel which got him enough acclaim to be noticed by the higher ups like DC Comics. I first noticed him from the “Gotham Central” series and “Superman: Sacrifice” and a recommendation prompted me to check this one out. Artist Steve Lieber is someone to watch as well.
For those who must have color be warned that it's black and white. Maybe because it was on limited budget? Based on a novel by Greg Rucka. Also made into a movie with Kate Beckinsdale which I will now move up to the top of my list. There's a volume two that follows.
In 1999 Whiteout was nominated for the "Best Writer", "Best Penciller/Inker or Penciller/Inker Team" and "Best Limited Series"Eisner Awards and in 2000 it was nominated for the "Best Graphic Album" Eisner Award (Wiki source).
