Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely
Grant Morrison has written some of the most challenging mainstream comics since he hit the scene in the late 1980s with Animal Man. While WE3 is no less challenging, it may be his most sentimental. Quitely's fine line-art has enhanced many a Morrison script (New X-Men, JLA: Earth 2, ALL-Star Superman). This time he uses his talent to bring life to this tale of a dog, a cat and a rabbit that want to find their way home, and who use all the experimental military hardware that has been implanted in their bodies to do so. Morrison's WE3 is a story that will give you an adrenaline rush and pull at your heartstrings.
