Available for the first time in a deluxe hardcover format, a powerful tale from the ALL-STAR SUPERMAN team of Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely, packed with nearly 40 pages of bonus material!Writer Grant Morrison and artist Frank Quitely deliver the emotional journey of WE3 – three house pets weaponized for lethal 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 mechanical exoskeletons, the members of Animal Weapon 3 (WE3) have the firepower of a battalion between them. But they are just the program’s prototypes, and now that their testing is complete, they’re slated to be permanently “decommissioned,” causing them to seize their one chance to make a desperate run for freedom. Relentlessly pursued by their makers, the WE3 team must navigate a frightening and confusing world where their instincts and heightened abilities make them as much a threat as those hunting them – but a world, nonetheless, in which somewhere there is something called “home.”Included in this deluxe hardcover are 10 brand new story pages created by Morrison and Quietly for this collection as well as over 25 pages of sketchbook and character design pages featuring commentary from the creators.

So... yeah. Let me premise why I picked this up in the first place, shall I? Somehow we got on the topic at work about animal cruelty. I don't remember how, to be completely honest. What I did remember, was that my comic loving co-worker mentioned that Grant Morrison had done a very brutal comic all...
A fantastic story of the bravery of animals, non-stop and sad at the same time. A tale of the resilience of spirit and love.
I could almost love this graphic novel. Almost. But not quite. The concepts involving animal rights/testing are dear to me, and I found the story intriguing all the way through. The art design and some of the panels were also quite good, though I wasn't a huge fan of the art style itself. Still, som...
Three lost pets are turned into war machines but as prototypes, their phase of the test program is complete and WE3 are set for termination. Their chief handler disapproves of this and gives them the means to escape their fate. Out in the world, they deal with their hunters with brutal precision tha...
