CM Podcast 79 – We3 Review

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.  I hope you all had a happy and relatively painless Thanksgiving with friends and/or family.

Since it was Thanksgiving this past Thursday, my mind started to wander and think about comics that have a “family” feel to it.  Now, I am sure there are many titles that have themes of family and getting together but none do it with as much bloodshed as the mini-series: We3.

We3 was a Vertigo title that was released in 2004 and its written by Grant Morrison with art work by Frank Quitely.  This series asks the ultimate question:

We find out the answer to that and other questions like: what does family and belonging mean?  Where exactly is home?  How many creative ways can you see weaponize pets vivisect humans?

Speaking to that last question, here are some of the scenes that I try to describe in the podcast.  All beautifully drawn by Frank Quitely.

After our discussion on We3, we compare the comic to the book and movie Watership Downs and have a quick palaver on how rabbits can teach use to be better humans.

“Remember folks, these images are from a ‘kids’ movie.”

That is it for this week.  Thanks for listening.

Your Comics Pal,

Jim
