In 1998, novelist Greg Rucka debuted on the comics scene with the four issue mini-series “Whiteout” from Oni Press. With artist Steve Lieber handling the visuals, the series which followed U.S. Marshall Carrie Stetko investigating a murder at the McMurdo Station in Antarctica, was an instant hit, garnering four Eisner Nominations. Not content to rest on their laurels, the duo revisited the life of Carrie in this rather harsh environment two years later with “Whiteout: Melt” in which the tough as nails Marshall is called back to Antarctica to investigate the explosion of a Russian science depot. Things got worse from there for Carrie, as she soon discovered an illicit cache of nuclear warheads and evidence that some were missing. This series likewise was an Eisner, but this it took home the trophy for Best Limited Series.
Since then, little has been heard from Carrie, but that all changes in the fourth quarter of 2007 as 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.
CBR News caught up with Rucka and Lieber to learn more about what they have in store for Carrie, how this series has evolved since the original two books were published, and why the long delay between “Melt” and “Thaw.”
