It seems I’m a bit late to this party since I missed Axe Cop as a webcomic Nevertheless I must now have my say this concept is absolutely genius and the execution is one of the funniest things I’ve ever readA few years ago Ethan Nicolle was playing with his five year old brother Malachai and decided it would be fun to take Malachai’s imagined play and illustrate it as a superhero comic It all started when Malachai took a toy police officer and added a firefighter’s axe They grabbed another figure and the nearest weapon like implement at hand—a recorder which led to Axe Cop’s first partner Flute Cop—and went to chop off the heads of dinosaurs and other sundry bad guysIn his book Killing Monsters Why Children Need Fantasy Super Heroes and Make Believe Violence Gerard Jones argues that the young use violent fantasies as a way of coping with their real life powerlessness smallness and helplessness—the point is not mutilation and bloodshed but power a desire to have some kind of ability to control their circumstances young people use fantasies of combat in order to feel stronger to access their emotions to take control of their anxieties to calm themselves down in the face of real violence to fight their way through emotional challenges and lift themselves to new developmental levels The violence is pretend in its purest form and in no way reflects any desire to do actual harm; it’s all about wanting to deal with forces beyond their controlSo in Malachai’s fantasies we see plenty of violence but all in the uest for power to vanuish scary bad guys And because he is only five we get none of the worries with logic or consistency or reality that too often limit the imaginations of older writers as Dav Pilkey talks about with Ook and Gluk Kung Fu Cavemen from the Future with wild and hilarious results Axe Cop doesn’t just have a pet T Rex he has a pet T Rex that breathes fire has a super duper fast bite wears cop glasses and a cop badge shaped like himself has robot machine gun arms feeds on bad guys can fly to catch bad guys on the moon and sun and has spikes that only stab you if you are bad and whose worst enemy is a lamp that comes alive early in the morning Axe Cop is constantly holding tryouts for partners to make himself powerful and even gets a part time job at a fruit stand so he can afford to buy guns When he encounters a giant robot with two swords and one eye that is too big for head chopping with an axe Axe Cop from nowhere pulls out a baby with a magical unicorn horn to throw at the robot’s eye and explode its head Axe Cop doesn’t just chop off the heads of bad guys he also shoots them blows them up poisons them and uses any other form of death dealing Malachai can imagine He also never rests because he spends each night sneaking into bad guys’ houses to kill them in their sleep But don’t worry there’s a morality to it all—if he could do anything he wanted he would make a bomb that only kills bad guys and would make sure to turn all the aliens evil before killing them all so that no one undeserving has to dieEthan takes these wild imaginings and brings them to life splendidly His illustrations are fun and he does his best to accurately portray Malachai’s i

Dventures Whether he's fighting gun toting dinosaurs teaming up with Ninja Moon Warriors or answering readers' uestions via his insightful advice column Ask Axe Cop the adventures of Axe Cop and his incomparable team of crime fighters will delight and perplex even the most stoic of reader. 35 stars I'm so lost on how to feel about Axe Cop On one hand it's a fully imaginative and silly premise of a story that only gets absurd as you turn the pages On the other hand you can definitely tell it's written by a 5 year old because fights don't extend past chopping heads off and all logic is thrown out the window I really enjoyed the book for what it was but it definitely is something you have to take in moderation I think for kids this would be a brilliant and super easy read but unfortunately it's kind of violent for kids Granted it's nothing kids don't talk about or imagine but I think even with the omission of things like blood and bad words the older brother who draws the comic still depicts some of his little brother's ideas in a adult mindset So while the book is silly and childish it is most definitely a time portal back to the days of imagining toy soldiers were than just that and where anything was possible The notes by the author on the logic behind Malachai's stories are really informative and serve the humor really well as to explain his thought process behind some things The art is cool and especially for what I'm sure is given to him as ideas I also really enjoyed Ask Axe Cop as those are probably the best part about the book I really liked the one where Axe Cop explains the SECRET ATTACKI think it's probably palatable and enjoyable as a weekly web comic and not a one sitting read Overall a really genius and uniue idea for a funny book If you think little kids are funny and you don't find their simple yet strangely humorous and complex imaginations annoying read this book
