A release date of September 19 has been set for the “Whiteout” movie, starring Kate Beckinsale as a U.S. Marshall investigating a murder in Antarctica. It is based on Greg Rucka’s comic of the same name.

Judging from the production stills it is another Antarctica movie with pretty people in clean parkas. Oh well, hopefully this one is better than the terrible made-for-TV “Icebound”.

    Hey there:

    I’m Steve Lieber, the artist of the Whiteout comic books. I haven’t seen a cut of the film yet, so I can’t say how well the final version will portray Antarctica, but we certainly tried very hard to get it right in the comics. You can read the first issue online, (which takes place mostly at McMurdo, not the pole) at my site:

    Hi Steve,

    Thanks for the link. I enjoyed reading the online issues.

    BTW, we have a well stocked Antarctic library here at the Pole. I’m sure a signed issue would be much appreciated by all Polies :-) Please get in touch if you want to send a copy.
