Overview

Bad guys, beware! Evil aliens, run for your lives! Axe Cop is here, and he's going to chop your head off! We live in a strange world, and our strange problems call for strange heroes.

Created by five-year-old Malachai Nicolle and illustrated by his older brother, the cartoonist Ethan Nicolle, Axe Cop Volume 1 collects the entire original run of the hit webcomic that has captured the world's attention with its insanely imaginative adventures.

Publishers Weekly
Have you ever played with a little kid and noticed the anything-goes quality of "kid logic" that allows for amazingly unbridled leaps of imagination? This loony collection of the popular webcomic (www.axecop.com) unleashes the rampaging imaginings of five-year-old Malachai Nicolle as crisply illustrated by his twenty-nine-year-old brother, Ethan, and the results are a glorious and utterly hilarious cornucopia of action, aliens, superheroes, heavily-armed fully-deputized dinosaurs and more. Perfectly capturing the wild concepts that only a pre-adolescent mind could come up with, this book is populated with the likes of the titular axe-wielding law enforcement officer, his partner (whose permutations are numerous and ludicrous), vampire/werewolf ninjas from the moon, assorted oddball superheroes (the armless Sock-A-Rang being particularly notable), and the hilarious Best Fairy Ever (imagine Tinker Bell if she were a skilled and deadly operative along the lines of Elektra, only really itty-bitty), so what's not to love? A delight for all ages, this stuff is laugh-out-loud funny and a welcome blast of unique, unapologetic absurdity. Illus.
