Click here to order WHITEOUT
by Greg Rucka & Steve Lieber
Paperback: 128 pages
Oni Press
ISBN: 0966712714
WHITEOUT is the story of United States Deputy Marshal Carrie Stetko, the only official US law enforcement officer present in Antarctica. She's based at McMurdo Station, on Ross Island, the largest permanently staffed base in Antarctica. She is, as they say, the law.

WHITEOUT is a murder mystery. It's about friendship, isolation, betrayal. It's about the coldest, loneliest, most remote place in the world. It's about a land where, in the height of winter, the temperature is roughly that of equatorial Mars.

In 1998, Oni Press published WHITEOUT by Greg Rucka and Steve Lieber, and the Antarctic mystery was one of the most favorably received series of the season. In May, WHITEOUT returned to the shelves as one large volume. After a series of murders, U.S. Marshal Carrie Stetko discovers a tangled plot to smuggle some precious materials off the ice - but what and by who continues to elude her. Aided by British secret agent Lily Sharpe, she unravels the web of betrayal and lies to get to the answer. Click here to order WHITEOUT
WHITEOUT is written by Greg Rucka, the celebrated author of the Atticus Kodiak series of novels, including KEEPER, FINDER, and SMOKER (all published by Bantam Books). He is also one of the key writers behind "No Man's Land" in DC's BATMAN titles. The book is illustrated by Russ Manning nominee Steve Lieber, whose work has also graced HAWKMAN, GRENDEL TALES, and CONAN. In addition to collecting all of the story from the miniseries, the WHITEOUT trade paperback also contains all the original covers by industry giants Matt Wagner (MAGE), Mike Mignola (HELLBOY), and Dave Gibbons (MARTHA WASHINGTON SAVES THE WORLD). For the collection, a brand-new cover was drawn by comics legend Frank Miller, the creator behind SIN CITY and 300.

"The whole experience of WHITEOUT has been a dream come true," commented Rucka. "You always here about comics writers wanting to write novels or break into film, but for me,I've gone the other way around. WHITEOUT is the sort of comic I have always wanted to read, and to receive support from people like Matt Wagner and Frank Miller - not to mention retailers and fans - on my first time out has been a tremendous joy."

"All throughout the summer, as I traveled to convention after convention," said Oni Press editor and publisher Bob Schreck, "people kept stopping me and telling me how much they loved WHITEOUT. This ranged from old friends to people I had never seen in my life, from fans to professionals of the highest caliber. The mix was simple - a strong, involving story coupled with solid, expressive art. WHITEOUT is good comics through and through, and it's quality compels us to put it into one volume." As an added bonus, all initial orders on this book will feature a special tip-in plate signed by both Rucka and Lieber.

"WHITEOUT has been one of our best performing books," said Joe Nozemack, Oni Press publisher. "That is due in no small part to all the readers and comic book stores who supported us and pushed the material. So, for those people, we wanted to do something different, and the signing seemed like the best way possible. Hopefully, it will also be seen as an added incentive for new readers to give this book a try."

"Collections are always a good tool for reaching people who may not have looked at comics in a while," Schreck continued. "This is the sort of book you should be giving to your friends who think comic are just kid's stuff. It looks like the regular books they know, it feels like it, and once they read the story, they're gonna see that this medium can tell any kind of tale it wants to."

"This isn't a book you're just going to buy and stick on your shelf," Rucka concluded. "I am confident that even if you read it the first time, you will want to read it again. This trade paperback gives you that opportunity, and it provides you with the an easily accessible format for reading it several more times. As a writer, that is one of the most heartening things I can think of."

The WHITEOUT trade paperback is 128 pages in length, presented in black-and-white with a striking cover by Frank Miller. It carries a retail price of $10.95 U.S., $15.95 Can., and is available in stores now.. It contains harsh language and adult situations.

WHITEOUT was nominated for three Eisner Awards: Best Limited Series, Best Writer (Greg Rucka), Best penciller/inker (Steve Lieber).

A Chain-Story by 69 Artists!
by Art Spiegelman and R. Sikoryak, Editor
Paperback (April 1998)
Gates of Heck, Inc
ISBN: 0963812947
Sometimes the success of an experiment is the experiment itself. That is to say, sometimes the experiment is more important than its outcome. Such may very well be the case for Art Spiegelman's exquisite-corpse experimental comics, The Narrative Corpse. Sixty-nine cartoonists were asked to draw three panels continuing a story featuring a nondescript stick figure based on only the previous three panels. As a story, it's less than fulfilling. As an experiment and as a collection of incredibly diverse artists, it's certainly interesting.

by Joseph Moncure March w/ drawings by Art Spiegelman
Paperback: 120 pages
Pantheon Books
ISBN: 0375706437
"Spiegelman's drawings are like demonic woodcuts: every angle, line, and curve jumps out at you. Stylishness and brutishness are in perfect accord."
--The New York Times
Art Spiegelman's sinister and witty black-and-white drawings give charged new life to Joseph Moncure March's Wild Party, a lost classic from 1928. The inventive and varied page designs offer perfect counterpoint to the staccato tempo of this hard-boiled jazz-age tragedy told in syncopated rhyming couplets.
Here is a poem that can make even readers with no time for poetry stop dead in their tracks. Once read, large shards of this story of one night of debauchery will become permanently lodged in the brain. When The Wild Party was first published, Louis Untermeyer declared: "It is repulsive and fascinating, vicious and vivacious, uncompromising, unashamed . . . and unremittingly powerful. It is an amazing tour de force."

When first published in 1928, this rhymed, free-verse novel of one night of debauchery in the life of a vaudeville dancer became a "scandalous" success and  a cult classic. The Wild Party is now given new life and expression, with March's text accompanied by more than 75 remarkable new black-and-white drawings by Art Spiegelman.
From the Back Cover
"The Wild Party?. . . It's the book that made me want to be a writer."

--William Burroughs
"The Wild Party may have begun as a dark Prohibition-era morality fable, but, thanks... to Spiegelman, it lives again as a funhouse mirror of current fears."
--San Francisco Chronicle
