Publisher Comments:

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. That's why Axe Cop - along with his partner Flute Cop and their pet T-Rex Wexter - is holding try-outs to build the greatest team of heroes ever assembled. Created by five year-old Malachai Nicolle and illustrated by his older brother, the cartoonist Ethan Nicolle, Axe Cop Volume One collects the entire original run of the hit webcomic that has captured the world's attention with its insanely imaginative adventures. Whether he's fighting gun-toting dinosaurs, teaming up with Ninja Moon Warriors, or answering readers' questions 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 readers.

Review:

"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. "

A hilariously surreal peek into the imagination of a five-year-old boy. Not recommended for reading while drinking a beverage--you will snort it through your nose. Axe Cop will "Chop your head off!" but your head will still be laughing with maniacal abandon. This is a world in which avocados can be unicorns, dinosaurs have machine-gun arms and only cowboys and warriors can control the magic riding spider.
