Whiteout Returns

I’m very happy to hear that there’s going to be another Whiteout comic. I just adore Steve Lieber’s art, and Greg Rucka’s writing has never been better than in this story of a U.S. Marshal in Antarctica. From an interview at Comic Book Resources:

Whiteout Thaw Promo Art

in the fourth quarter of 2007… Rucka and Lieber reunite for the third chapter of Carrie’s story, Whiteout: Thaw, once again from Oni Press. Like the two previous series, Thaw will likely debut as a four issue mini-series (Rucka, Lieber, and company are still finalizing their plans) in black and white once again. …

[Rucka:] The shorthand [Lieber] and I have always used for this new series, and he’s never drawn it to my knowledge, but he and I had a conversation at one point about how when you die on Antarctica, they use these industrial, kind of galvanized coffins to move you off the ice. It was always this image of watching one of these things loaded into the back of a C140 and the slug I told the guys at Oni was, “Carrie’s leaving the ice — the only question is how.” That’s all I can say what the story is going to be. Steve and I have known we were going to tell this one for a long time and it was going to be Carrie’s last Antarctica story.

    Hey, Rucka gets to write another crime comic! And he didn’t have to kill anybody (that we know about) to do it!

    Hee hee hee. Maybe that started him thinking…

    I was very pleased with this news as it was completely unexpected. Whiteout and Queen & Country are both so much more enjoyable than anything Rucka has done at Marvel or DC.

  4. James Schee Says:

    Cool! The first Whiteout was one of my first branch out titles way back when and I loved it.

    It was also the first title that made me look at Oni as something other than Kevin Smith and friends comic publisher of bathroom humor stories.

    […] neglected to ask Steve about progress on the final Whiteout book: Originally called Thaw, a four-issue miniseries was planned to start in Fall 2007, but in December 2008, Rucka posted that […]
