New Thing #23: Axe Cop

I think I first heard about the comic series Axe Cop a few weeks ago on ComicVine.com.

It sounded like a great idea: have a 6 year old’s wild imagination provide the story for the comic and his 30 year old brother the artwork.

It makes for one wild ride involving Axe Cop, dinosaurs, “normal cops”, feint bullets, time travel and flying cars. And that’s just the first two pages.

It reminds me of my own four year old’s retelling of her dreams in the morning. SPOILER: They usually involve a loveable unicorn that shoots rainbows from its horn.

The artwork in Axe Cop is great and you honestly never know where the story is going from one panel to another. As the artist and co-creator of the book says:

The creation … was hands on, in person, and tons of fun. Piles of toys and plastic weapons were involved. We painted dinosaur figuringes. We wore aviator sunglasses and ran around the house with plastic axes.

And you feel every bit of that fun and love in each panel of the book.
