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."
