I could have sworn I'd already blogged about Whiteout, but I cannot find any reference to it in my journal.

What can I say? This was on sale at a really cool science fiction store in Bristol, and I knew there was a movie based on the comic, so I bought this and the companion volume. It's a pretty good whodunit with decent artwork and one particularly well-conceived character. However, in the end, it wasn't as satisfying as something by Millar or as thought-provoking as Moore.

As for the movie, as too often is the case, it doesn't do the novel justice. Don't bother with the movie. You'll get far more enjoyment out of the graphic novel.
