I bought the first Axe Cop volume and loved it so much that as soon as I saw Bad Guy Earth for pre-order, I ordered right away. This volume does not disappoint. It's a full story, rather than the short episodes of the first volume. The story is hilarious and the art is great. I've read it twice and have laughed out loud several times. Looking forward to more print content!

A belly laugh on every page, this is twice as insane as the webcomic. Truly an amazing concept and if it doesn't make you smile, you were never a child.

I really enjoyed this book. They managed to cram a lot of different things into one story, which makes it even funnier. Basically, if you enjoy the web comic you will enjoy Bad Guy Earth. I would recommend this to any fan of Axe Cop!

The most fun you can have reading comics! Never would expect such a collection of random events to be tied up so neatly. Hilarious. Random. Awesome!

Axe Cop sprang forth from a play session between a 5-year-old and his 28-year-old brother. That was in 2009. Since then, artist/illustrator Ethan Nicolle has documented and illustrated the bombastic, boundless imagination of his little brother Malachai without censoring his creativity at all. This is the formula for Axe Cop's utterly insane world and-- like the various potions therein-- succeeds no matter what it tries for.

Does it make sense? Internally, sort of. Objectively, no. Does that matter? Not one bit *and* completely, both at the same time. In one of the first webcomic installments Flute Cop gets dinosaur blood on him and becomes Dinosaur Soldier. Their gun bill is really high. Whoever letters the comic (Ethan? I'm not sure.) gives the speech a very strange cadence with erratic bolding. After reading Axe Cop I always find myself thinking with that cadence for at least a little while. That lack of polish (or stylistic choice, it really doesn't matter) is part of what gives Axe Cop its bizarre charm.

I sincerely hope the now-9-year-old Malachai holds onto his imagination. In Axe Cop's world a cop (apparently not a real cop, according to this volume, but specificaly an Axe Cop) has a pet T-Rex with chaingun arms, giant T-Rex-sized cop aviators, the ability to fly without wings, and fire breath is a truly magical thing. If you get something's blood on you it gives you some aspect of that thing, such as the aforementioned incident with Flute Cop becoming Dinosaur Soldier. Abraham Lincoln (Explosion God) puts bombs in all the bad guys and makes them explode, but somehow there are later more bad guys. This world doesn't try to make logical sense. It doesn't need to. It's just explosively awesome and hilarious for its own sake.

Here we have the continuation of a pre-dual digit mind. We often forget the absurdity that went on in our minds at that age, but underneath all that absurdity is an engine of imagination and creativity. I don't follow this web comic in its regular release, unfortunately, but the collected trades are wonderful. I understand Ethan had some strips rearranged here for the sake of lucidity, but I can't comment on what was original and what was altered. Either way, this collection is great and adds the levels of plot that were vaguely present in the first collection.

So Malachi, being the age he is, is pressed to juice out more of Axe Cop's world. It's a wonder Ethan has the ability to prod the young boy, but what's even more impressive is that he's able to sketch these out in the author's own patient time, even if he'd rather be playing video games, etc. Axe Cop goes against evils far greater than he has before, against enemies with more powers than he seemingly can counter, but ends up befriending more characters than necessary and helps to develop a wonderful plotline where readers are eager to see where else we can follow Axe Cop.

Every once in a while, Axe Cop as a whole feels immature. But that's not a bad thing. In a medium saturated with serious storylines, Axe Cop is a refreshment, a reminder of what it's like to be a kid again.
