5.0 out of 5 stars Frozen Death 1 Dec 2013
By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Whiteout: Melt is a paperback collection of all four issues of the 1999 comic mini series which was a sequel to Whiteout: The Definitive Edition: v. 1. The story of Carrie Stetko, US Marshal at a research station in Antarctica, investigating a murder there.

Whiteout: Melt, is an all new story. Carrie once again features, but it's basically an all new case for her with the only tie in to the original being that it features the same character and takes place on the same continent. The cold, windy and forbidding place that is Antarctica.

This edition differs from earlier editions in that the art has been remastered, and it has a new afterword from the writer.

Since there's precious little if any tie in with Whiteout, those who haven't read that would probably be able to get into this quite easily. But you're better off starting with Whiteout first, just to get better introduced to Carrie as a character.

This volume runs for one hundred and ten pages, and is divided into four chapters. The artwork is in black and white.

It features strong language and adult moments, so is really for mature readers only.

It starts with a few bits of interesting history about the continent, from the first expeditions to the present day. You may learn something from this.

Then the story sees a Russian base attacked and destroyed by hooded men. Carrie, vacationing far away and in the warm, is forced to go back and look into what has happened.

She finds the base had secrets. And has to team up with someone she doesn't know in order to track the villains down. But a bigger danger awaits everyone.

Really good story, great atmosphere set in Antarctic. Different style of story from first volume but great. Some surprises in the plot. Recommend his other work Gotham Central.

3.0 out of 5 stars Average 11 Jun 2009
Pretty average as far as crime stories goes. There is a novelty to it based on its setting but otherwise quite average. I recommend Queen and Country by the author as an overall superior read or if you want Crime then Criminal by Ed Brubaker.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Definitive Edition 4 Feb 2008
By Anastasia Beaverhausen - Published on Amazon.com
"Whiteout" and its sequel "Whiteout: Melt" stand out as classics of the independent comics scene from the late 1990s. The original mini-series was Greg Rucka's breakout hit, leading to his great runs on "Batman: No Man's Land," "Gotham Central," and other notable DC comics.

The most notable change for this "Definitive Edition" is the new 6 x 9 inches digest size; the original series was printed at a slightly larger 10 x 7.5 inches. The artwork is also newly re-scanned and cleaned up. According to publisher Randy Oni, "We relied on a third party vendor to scan all the boards [originally]. As a result of not having a tight control over digital production, many of the pages scanned dirtier than we would have liked. Too many old pencil marks showed up... Some of the images were actually scanned at too low of a resolution. So, we rescanned the pages we could [for the Definitive Edition]. I then spent about 60 hours cleaning up every page, pixel by pixel in Photoshop... Also, Steve did some touch ups here and there."

If you haven't read the "Whiteout" series, now is the time to hop on board before the movie (starring Kate Beckinsale) and the third mini-series ("Whiteout: Thaw") are released in 2008.
