“I need a partner now.” -Axe Cop

It’s been a while since I’ve done a comic recommendation…

… but more importantly we need to talk about AXE COP.

Yup.

Axe Cop is an internet phenomenon, but for some reason isn’t as famous as some other projects on the interwebs. I can’t imagine why.

This amazing piece of literature started when 29-year-old comic book artist Ethan Nicolle was visiting his family for Christmas. His 5-year-old brother Malachai (there are 5 children in the family, Ethan and Malachai are the oldest and youngest, respectively) asked him to play a game, which he called Axe Cop. It was quickly decided that Ethan was Axe Cop and Malachai was Flute Cop, and the story followed a natural progression from there. Well, by 5-year-old-boy logic.

After a while, Ethan couldn’t help himself and decided to draw it out as a single page comic. Since then, it’s exploded. There’s all sorts of merchandise, and reportedly even a a TV show for FOX in the works.

So please, read one page, or read them all. Either way, watching a 5-year-old’s brainchild come to life is going to make your day a little better.
