Written by Grant Morrison; Art and cover by Frank Quitely
"[A] startling, disturbing and perhaps enlightening series... a provocative tale."
-ATLANTA JOURNAL CONSTITUTION
"Morrison has crafted an eerie tale of sci-fi and horror... with cute, furry animals."
We3 was nearly unanimously praised by critics, who particularly celebrated Morrison and Quitely's experimentation with panel layout and page design. For example, action scenes often depicted a large primary image overlaid with dozens of tiny panels showing extreme close-ups of individual actions. Morrison's characterization (the title characters are sympathetic, despite their limited communicative abilities) and pro-animal rights stance also attracted praise.
In 2006, New Line Cinema optioned We3 as a movie project with Morrison attached as screenwriter. The script was completed in 2006, andDon Murphy, Susan Montford and Rick Benattar remain attached as producers with the film currently in development. If the film is made, the cybernetic animals would be completely computer-generated.
On December 9th, 2008, it was reported that John Stevenson, director of Kung Fu Panda was attached to the project as a director, and that New Line Cinema was no longer involved.
