Hey guys, Axe Cop will soon have his very own TV show! It's part of the ANIMATION DOMINATION HIGH-DEF late night block premiering Saturday, July 27th 11/10c on FOX.
But wait, maybe you're not up to speed on AXE COP? That's okay -- there are a lot of things on the Internet, sometimes you miss something awesome. Hit the jump for a quick AXE COP primer before his show premieres...
Who's AXE COP?
Axe Cop fills his days chopping off bad guy's heads and auditioning members for various super teams. He's also the smartest man in the world. His friends include Sockarang (a man with boomerang sock-arms who absorbed the powers of Evil Santa), Uni-Baby, Baby Man, Bat Warthog Man, Flute Cop/Dinosaur Soldier/Avacado Soldier and Ralph Wrinkles, a dog who knows karate (to name a few).
This All Sounds...Kind of Crazy. Who's Writing This Stuff?
AXE COP is the co-creation of Malachai and Ethan Nicolle. Malachai, who writes the stories, was only 5-years-old when the Axe Cop webcomic began. His brother, who draws the pictures, was 29. By the way, you can read every Axe Cop comic to date for free here.
