Shelfdust Presents: The Fifty Best #1 Issues

Oct 31, 2022

This week is an emotional one as we look at the issue which came in 43rd place: We3 #1 by Grant Morrison, Frank Quitely, Jamie Grant and Todd Klein.

The three-part miniseries follows three domestic pets escape from a military base where they’ve been experimented on by a sinister agency, who’ve grafted high-tech weaponry onto them. With everything they thought they knew about the kindness of their owners gone, the trio – a dog, a cat an a rabbit – try to find the best way to go home. But what is home? If you’ve read the series (or Chase Magnett’s essay for Shelfdust about the issue) then you’ll know… and you’ll already have your hankies at the ready. That’ll certainly be the case for Matt, who this week is joined by special guest Chloe Maveal to talk about the issue!

Please note this podcast was recorded in 2020, and Grant Morrison's pronouns are they/them.
