Axe Cop is Made of Awesome

May 21, 2011 at 9:48 am 1 comment

I just finished Axe Cop, the most insane, hilarious graphic novel I’ve read yet.  It’s written by a 5 year old and illustrated by his 29 year old brother, so the story takes these crazy leaps that could only come from a kid. 

Basically, a cop found the perfect axe one day and decided to become Axe Cop, chopping the heads off bad guys everywhere.  (One exception: if another cop decided to be an Axe Cop, the real Axe Cop would have to chop his head off even if he was good. There can be only one Axe Cop.)

He has sidekicks like Dinosaur Soldier, a cop who was fighting a dinosaur, got its blood on him, and turned into a man-sized, talking,  crime fighting dinosaur.   There’s a baby with a wish-granting unicorn horn, two brothers from the moon, vampires, zombies, robots and more dinosaurs!  Check out Axe Cop by Malachai and Ethan Nicolle if you like absurd humor and don’t mind just going with whatever craziness comes next.   

You can also go to axecop.com.  Definitely check out the newer stuff there, but I recommend getting started with the book for it’s behind the scenes look at the way the brothers create Axe Cop together.
