"Home? Is run no more."

I've been working here the last several minutes, sorting out in my head how exactly I am going to tell you how good We3 is while still maintaining some shred of my dignity. It does not seem particularly dignified, for example, to admit that I got misty-eyed while reading the just-released collected edition last night (re-reading, really, since I have all the individual issues). Or that I got misty-eyed again thinking about parts of it just now. Or that I get chills down my spine whenever I think of the moment in chapter 3 when Animal Weapon 1 (the dog) has occasion to say "Gud 2! 1 protect!", which makes no damn sense if you haven't read it, but will fill your heart with song when you do.

So let's just say that We3 is one of my favorite things ever, and leave it at that.

If you do read it (and I can't stress enough that it should be a matter of "when" you read it, not "if"), be sure to take your time and read carefully. The minimal dialogue is deceptive. The panels are packed with information that is vital to appreciate the story. A careful reading can make all the difference in the world, as Randy over at The Fourth Rail can no doubt attest.

We3 is beeyooooootyful. I want it in a giant-sized Big Damn Hard Boiled-style edition.

Those lost pet posters made me sniffle.

Holy crap dude!

Darkhorizons.com has a report that Grant Morrison is in negotiations with New Line to make We3 into a movie. Hoo boy.
