So we all know that We3 was amazing. If you don't know that you're either on the wrong blog ("I thought this would be about STAND UP!") or you're a blithering idiot with no taste whatsoever ("GURGLE GURGLE ME NEED MORE REALITY TV!") But did you know normal people like it, too? Well you better believe it!

This past weekend I brought all three issues to my fiancee's house where she and her sister took turns reading it. They both LOVED it. Like, enough to actually sit and talk about it for quite a while the next day. The first thing my future sister-in-law said to me one morning was "We3 was really amazing."

That's right, normal people like it. So spread the love and spread the wealth. Just don't spread that smell that emanates from your pits. God, take a bath!

Jean is an anti-comic bigot, but even she sorta admits that We3 is good.

Or at least more interesting than all the other comics I try to get her to read.

My girlfriend loved it was well. She is becoming a Grant Morrison fan- I read her the ad for VINAMARAMA and she got giddy with anticipation.

Grant Morrison makes relationships better. He's like trusting honesty, and/or good sex.

I dunno, fellas...my wife is so tender-hearted about animals that I seriously doubt she'd make it past the first issue. I've been telling her about it, though, and she hasn't expressed any interest, so I've learned to take that as a hint.

Normal people like comics. Superhero fans don't like comics, they like superheroes.

I love that and I'm going to steal it and use it as if it was my own thought.

Hope you don't mind.

Johnny B., I'm the softest touch there is when it comes to animals. Seriously, I see a set of scrubs on Animal Planet and I dive for the remote. But I really loved We3.

When your mom seriously likes a comic book, maybe you can say normal people like it. In the meantime, you can say girls that like comic geeks also like WE3.

Well,t hat's an arrogant and erroneous judgement based solely on your personal prejudices.

You'll fit in just fine.

And for the record, my mom wouldn't like We3, but only because she hates it whenever animals in a story die.

I wouldn't say he's entirely erroneous. There are people who are intp comics strictly because comics have the highest superhero-to-other-stuff ratio of any medium. Some even go as far as to say anything that isn't superheroes is crap, like a geekier Mike Myers SNL skit. It's something I wrote on at length a while back.

It's much more fair to say, though, that some "[s]uperhero fans don't like comics, they like superheroes." And I think that's a hypothesis that holds up.

I'm gonna have to go with Ed on this, because it would be totally hypocritcal for me not to. I mean, I was a super-hero comics only reader for a long, long time. And if those are your tastes, fine (provided you can acknowledge that supes aren't the only audience comics can serve).

But of the two shops in town, one is pretty much all capes all the time. The second is better, but I still have to pre-order a lot of interesting stuff or risk never seeing it on the shelves.

David, you always agree with me. This is why we're the bestest imaginary couple ever. I can't even get my real significant other to agree with me a quarter of the time.

Sure, Ed, but things change when you actually have to share a bathroom with someone.

My girlfriend couldn't take the first two issues, even though she loves Morrison. I bought the third, but haven't read it yet because we buried her cat last week, and I will ruin the book with my tears. I doubt she will read it at all. Jordan

Lord...I can't even imagine reading #3 after burying a pet.
