Book Description

17 Aug 2011 We3
Written by GRANT MORRISON Art and cover by FRANK QUITELY For the first time in hardcover, a powerful tale from the ALL-STAR SUPERMAN team of Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely! Morrison and Quitely deliver the emotional journey of WE3 - three house pets weaponized for combat by the government - as they search for "home" and ward off the shadowy agency that created them. With nervous systems amplified to match their terrifying exoskeletons, the members of Animal Weapon 3 (WE3) have the firepower of a battalion. But as prototypes, they're slated to be permanently "decommissioned" after their testing is complete, causing them to make a desperate run for freedom. Relentlessly pursued by their makers, WE3 must navigate a frightening world where their heightened abilities make them as much a threat as those hunting them - but a world in which they must find a home. This amazing hardcover features new story pages by Morrison and Quitely.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Rarity Amongst Comics 29 Oct 2005
Format:Paperback
I've always said (well, to myself anyway) the best comics are always random, the ones you pick up off the shelf and realise they are spectacularly different to what you had imagined. At first I thought this comic was a comedy Sci Fi piece, but as I flicked through the pages I quickly realised it was a gritty, violent and quite sad story.

It features 3 domestic semi-sentient animals which have been augmented/cyborgised (rather tragically) for a military experiment. But when their usefulness is at an end, the 3 in question(a Dog, Cat and Rabbit who only have each other as family, a bare understanding of speech, humanity or the world around them) try to escape and find 'home', with virtually everyone on their trail.

This very adult and tragic tale is a rarity amongst comics. Whether you're an animal lover or a mech fan, it'll leave a odd taste in your mouth. It'll make you think "Should I be upset by a comic?". And it will make you wonder why you can't get it out of your head.

I promise, you'll get to the last page and just think "...damn".

5.0 out of 5 stars read this then hug your pets! 1 Jun 2006
Format:Paperback
This is an astonishing comic book with the most stunning art i have ever seen! There is an almost contradictory beauty in such savage images (eyeball, you'll understand when you see). The story itself is almost a cross between "the incredible journey" and "terminator 2" although it seems crass to decribe it as such. It is ,without question, the most moving comic book i have ever read. PLEASE READ

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful little yarn! 1 May 2009
Format:Paperback
A very powerful little graphic novel - well written and expertly illustrated. This is a very short read and I think a lot of its impact comes from its concise format. Well worth the money and sure to leave a lump in your throat - this one brought tears to my eyes!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good LITTLE read 3 April 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this comic and found the story line fun and invigorating. This was more or less the first comic in had ever brought rather than borrowed. On that front I was regretful for I thought the comic would last me a week at least but ended up lasting less than a couple of hours. As an artist, I love it. As a reader, I found it limited.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gem amongst stones. 8 April 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Purely by chance I came across this book, and I'm so glad I did. Having never cried at a film and only one book in my life (I watch/read a LOT), I was extremely surprised at how 'We 3' truly did tug at my heart strings. The artwork is perfect, and along with the dialogue (or mostly lack thereof) they manage to capture the subtleties of the characters - it breaks the boundaries between humans and animals, making you genuinely care for and sympathize with the characters.
Having said that, 'We 3' is by no means a light read. There is a lot of violence, between both animals and humans alike - but it's not unnecessary and makes it all the more powerful when in contrast you see the same characters in vulnerable states.
Overall, I'd say this book is a gritty thing of beauty, and whether you're there for the bloodshed or emotional value, you'll be left with it lingering in your mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good boy! 1 Feb 2010
By G. Meldrum VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Possibly the high point of the Grant Morrison / Frank Quitely pairing (it's that or All-Star Superman #10), this is absolutely amazing stuff, up there amongst the greatest treasures modern comics have given us. I know that sounds hyperbolic, but the emotional impact this three-issue mini-series has, combined with the visually astounding work of Quietly, makes it completely unmissable. I'll admit, when I first heard the concept (`Incredible Journey' with cyborg battlesuits) it didn't really prepare me for how much I would love this book. However, I became so wrapped up in this tale of three mechanically-enhanced animal victims and their search for home that the fate of the furry protagonists really mattered to me. In fact, the utterly nightmarish final page of the second issue (the truly terrifying, horrific depiction of Weapon 4, one of Quitely's career masterpieces) genuinely chilled me to the bone, and actually made me think twice about whether I should buy issue #3. Could I bear to see this monstrosity let loose on our heroes? I should have had more faith in Morrison. There's one moment, right when everything seems at its worst for Weapon 1, that we are reminded the animals were taught to work as a team. The next page might just be my favourite in all of comics. Makes me well up just thinking about it! (As Morrison's Batman once said, never underestimate the sentimentality of a Scotsman.)

In short then, this is an absolutely vital collection, beautiful, horrific and touching, all in one. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
