Whiteout: Melt (vol. 2)

Credits: Written by Greg Rucka and Illustrated by Steve Lieber
Publisher: Oni Press


Our digitally-challenged heroine, U.S. Marshall Carrie Stetko, is back and laughing, stuck in the middle of Antarctica with a handsome Russian agent that she's been ordered to betray, chasing super-soldiers on snowmobiles equipped with stolen nukes. On her side, Carrie's got skis and a grudge against the ice.

Pity the ice.

Part Marion Ravenwood, part Rick Blaine, and part someone altogether more human, Carrie Stetko is an icon for the rest of us. In WHITEOUT, we played Dr. Watson to Carrie's Sherlock Holmes, keeping track of clues as she solved the case. In WHITEOUT: MELT, Carrie's Dirty Harry and we... are on the edge of our seats. More action and less mystery, here we see her badass side. (We see more of her every side in fact - remember the handsome Russian agent?) And if the last three pages don't break your heart even as they make you smile, then your soul is made of ice.

Bravo, Mr.'s Lieber and Rucka. Now please go make more.
