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!

If you're a little reluctant to think that Axe Cop can work as a full story, don't be. Malachai and Ethan Nicolle deliver once again in this fantastically childish installment of the ongoing webcomic. True to the Axe Cop formula, the plot is really thin and characterized mostly by random, often inexplicable events and blown out of proportion action. Funny art and lines throughout the book. A quick read that doesn't overstay its welcome, but with enough content to keep the reader satisfied. Also includes a few very interesting pages about the book's development and more on the authors themselves. Even if you haven't read the webcomic (though I definitely suggest you do), "Bad Guy Earth" is still bound to give a few, almost girlish laughs.

When an evil planet appears in the sky, ready to wipe out the earth, it's just the beginning of another epic madcap adventure starring Axe Cop and friends. Menacing twins, dinosaurs vs. alien invaders, a terrifying witch that rides a gorilla that rides a lion, zombies, evil doppelgangers, and wishing grant unicorn horns are just some of the most bizarre elements in this the second volume of Axe Cop. From the mind of a 6-year-old genius-in-training and his 20-something older brother, Malachai & Ethan Nicolle, expect the unexpected.

Now if this was something published by DC or Marvel I would rip it a new one in my review. But this book was designed as an experiment to see just how in-depth of a story could a 6-year old craft. With that in mind, I would say that this test was a success.

You can't expect a child to write Shakespeare. They don't have the attention span to see a story get from point A to point Z without about 500 tangents. Thankfully, big bro Ethan kept Malachi on task. for the most. But man, does that little guy have an imagination! And man, can older brother draw!!! (Thought why his intelligent rabbit folk look like those Rabbids video game characters is intention or not is up for debate.)

Axe Cop has made me laugh every since I got my hands on the first volume almost 5 years ago. Then when we got the short-lived but oh so great Axe Cop cartoon starring Nick Offerman as the voice of the hero. And I was hooked!!! Now, I can't see Offerman without thinking 'AXE COP' but I also can't read Axe Cop without hearing Offerman's deep soothing voice.

If you are a fan of totally insane webcomics like Doctor McNinja then this is the series for you. Plus, since it's written by a child, kids and adults will delight. One caveat- this book is written by a child;, so expect some gross humor and lots of violence. Not gory, but definitely not safe either.

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!

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.

This comic is a feast for the eyes. It's full of imagination, wacky scenarios and characters. It made me laugh, and go back to admire the great art. Recommended for anyone who likes comic book style action and craziness.

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.
