A perfectly good way to spend a lunch hour. Maybe a little more violent than most lunch hours, but, what the hell, you probably didn't need to eat all of that anyway.

I agree that We3 is a well made, disturbing piece of graphic art. And I think, in some ways, what I like about it most is the form. A lot of comics go on endlessly; even most graphic novels are at least a few hundred pages long. We3 tells a story that only spans a few real comics, but doesn't extend itself longer than it has to. I also like that it's nearly wordless; I'm a sucker for pieces that depend so much on visual storytelling.

What I didn't like was the sort of slow-motion, look-at-how-much-is-going-on sequences that occur throughout the book. I didn't find them effective, just annoying. And I wasn't crazy about the video camera sequence early on in the text; too much between the gutters too early.

Still, I was thinking about We3 well after I finished it. And I never finished my lunch.
