(From Ask Axe Cop #24)

Stop what you're doing! Have you ever read Axe Cop? It's probably one of my most favorite webcomics about a dinosaur and an axe-wielding cop. It's also my favorite webcomic written by a six year old and illustrated by his Eisner-Award not-winning 30 year old older brother. It might be the only comic in either of those categories, but the point is why are you reading about it if you're just now hearing about it? Go and read all 80-some episodes, I'll sit here and wait.

Okay... now that the Johnny-come-latelies are all out of here, check it out: Dark Horse put together a collection of the comic in December. I like how free the freeness of the free webcomic is, so I didn't mess with that, but now they're getting ready to start publishing the cartoon in comic form in the spring. It appears to take over where The Dark Knight left off, so maybe you don't need to care about Jonathan Lipnicki playing King Tut or whatever (let's make that a new rumor, TMGeektress):

Comics fans and fancy news blogs aren't the only ones to take notice of Axe Cop; now the so--called "real" police know about him, too. And if there's one thing police don't like, it's a guy with an axe who's better than they are at catching and dispatching bad guys! Now Axe Cop and his partner Dinosaur Soldier are being treated like bad guys, not only by the police, but by the president and the army, too!

Comics Alliance has a preview of Axe Cop: Bad Guy Earth #1. It's the first in a three-issue miniseries from the creators, Ethan (old) and Malachai (short) Nicolle.

Personally, I think the RoboCop statue in Detroit is interesting and everything, but why not an Axe Cop statue... in EVERY CITY?!?.

If all that hasn't whetted your interest, I invite you to peruse the trailer from the probably not at all upcoming live-action Axe Cop movie (THAT SHOULD TOTALLY HAPPEN.)

I want that theme song as an MP3 so I can remix it for all my axe-workouts. You know: axe squat thrusts, axe cardio, axe pilates. The whole axe axiom.

By the way, how much do I love Dark Horse? An axe-load, that's how much.

I'm sorry, I'll leave now.
