Site of the day: Axe Cop

Marrying the whimsy of a five-year-old with the bonafides of a 29-year-old graphic novelist, “Axe Cop” is all kinds of silly fun. With characters like yes, Axe Cop (and his brother Flute Cop, who wields a recorder), Avocado Soldier (he’s an avocado…and a soldier!), and Uni-Baby (a baby with a horn) and Uni-man (pictured), the comic loosely follows the ragtag danger-fighting adventures of its goofy crew.

The comic started when artist Ethan Nicolle was visiting his little brother Malachai this Christmas. “When I visit, he [tells] me his ideas and I draw them sometimes, like slug scientists and robots,” the elder Nicolle tells EW. “‘Axe Cop’ just sort of exploded into something bigger.” Malachai creates the narrative, and his big brother — whose work includes the Chumble Spuzz series — gives it a traditional comic-book look.

I’m totally smitten with “Axe Cop,” PopWatchers. Are we looking at the next great comic franchise?

    This is the funniest dang webcomic I’ve seen in a LONG time. Best of luck to Ethan and his little bro.

    Did this link kill them by sending them too much traffic and overloading their bandwidth or whatever? Because when you click now you just see “account suspended.”

    I was sort of hoping that “Axe Cop” somehow cracked down on men (and boys) who use an overabundance of Axe Body Spray (as in :*any* Axe Body Spray) but the strip is still quite fantastic.
