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."… (mere)

I sincerely hope that no wack-job weapons developer actually takes this book seriously, because using animals as bio-weapons is atrocious. It's bad enough that humans are soldiers in reality, but they at least get a choice about joining a battle. ( )

Maybe the only comic I've ever read that could be described as both "gruesome" and "heartbreaking". (Those cover designs D: ) Morrison and Quitely collapse years of science-run-amok and lost-animal narratives into 3 tight, almost merciless issues. You'll enjoy it but you'll need to hug your pet afterwards. ( )

Three animals are turned into weapons via the use of cybernetic implants. Alright, I'm sold.

The art is gorgeous. The dog and cat are well-developed characters that still feel like a cat and dog. The rabbit is more of a minor character and has far less development. The action is intense, easy to follow, and exciting. The story is formulaic and predictable, but still entertaining and enjoyable. ( )

Wow. This packs a punch to the gut.

This was a very good graphic novel. The characters were all engaging on an emotional level and the writing was clever and balanced, bringing a sense of tragedy in a story about furry animals without ever veering into schmaltzy storytelling.

One of the most interesting aspects of the novel is how Grant Morrison plays with time and space within the graphic layout. Most scenes are told from an animal's perspective so not only do we get tight human mouths and crotches but time itself is altered. It is more complicated to explain than it is to see but the effect is fascinating. Using the backdrop of a simple chase story, Morrison, through his use of alternating time perspectives, orbits certain signifiers of meaning (e.g. "home," "gud") and calls them into question.

I could go on. There were quite a few ideas packed into this little story both visual and intellectual which stemmed from a fundamental meditation/reinvention of several signifiers (war/peace, animal/human, time, identity, ownership).

I definitely recommend this book, especially if you like your cool factor violence mixed with postmodernism. ( )

Morrison, perhaps the greatest writer in comics today, endows his animals with synthesized cyborg speech in which they express their most basic desires for warmth, food and love, as well as their attempts to process their unnatural capacities for violence. "Bad dog," Bandit repeatedly scolds himself after taking down yet another soldier. Quitely's art consists of lucid images of mayhem and sweetness that, in the most impressive spreads, fractalize to express the way these animals "experience time and motion differently." It's a groundbreaking and bravura performance. This is Morrison's most accessible tale ever, and one that is destined to be a classic.

Grant Morrison is sometimes criticized for favoring crazy ideas over storytelling, or for being confusing. This book, with neither of those flaws, is thus his best introduction for a new reader.
