If you haven't yet heard of AXE COP, don't kick yourself yet. It's not just you missing out on this bit of cool. Me, I just got a whiff of this myself, and, holy cripes, I couldn't stop giggling while I was flipping thru the pages of this collection. AXE COP is originally a webcomic, so, right there, it presents underdog connotations. Have you ever humored a three- or four-year-old kid as he strives to narrate a story? The behind-the-scenes stuff to AXE COP is pretty neat: Not too long ago, 29-year-old Ethan Nicolle decided to turn his then 5-year-old brother Malachai's madcap stories into a webcomic. Malachai is a few years older now, but not that much older. This webcomic continues to flaunt the absurd exploits of Axe Cop.

Malachai's storytelling is all over the place, and it's part of the fun. It doesn't pay to question things when Axe Cop, while grimly dispensing justice, crosses paths with zombies and robots and an endless gallery of dinosaurs. For whatever reason, when the sun goes down, Axe Cop can be seen wearing a black catsuit. His preferred weapon is, of course, a wicked sharp axe which he wields to chop bad guys' heads off! Axe Cop doesn't have girls on his super crimefighting team because he thinks that "Girls are not good fighters." The non-sequiturs are constant. There's an unintentional subversive tone. AXE COP comes close to matching Gary Larson's THE FAR SIDE in terms of loopiness.

While you marvel at Malachai's dizzying imagination, don't neglect Ethan's contributions. His artwork is often overlooked and undervalued, but he's the one who so adeptly visually interprets his kid brother's stream-of-consciousness salvos. Credit Ethan, too, for keeping the narrative coherent - or, anyway, somewhat coherent.

As the Father of a wildly imaginative three-year-old Boy, I totally get what's going on in the mind of seven-year-old AXE COP creator Malachai Nicolle. The wildly outrageous stream-of-consciousness adventures of an axe-wielding, gleefully murderous Cop, as interpreted and illustrated by Malachai's big Brother, Ethan, are just crazy enough to bring a smile to the face of even the most jaded comic-book reader. I'd be remiss if I didn't tell you that I laughed out loud, on many occasions, when reading AXE COP, VOLUME 3. That said, I do feel that the AXE COP premise works best in small doses....after 160 pages of AXE COP, there tends to be a sameness to each page. I'm not overly fond of the actual stories that the Brothers cook up, but I love the "Ask Axe Cop" pages. By all means, pick up a copy, just don't read it in one sitting.

The premise for this series is pretty simple: what if a comic was written by child but drawn by an adult.

Well the result is confirmation that inside every eight year old boy is a genocidal, psychopath. Mass murder, child abuse, arrogance, gender bias, and a bit homicidal rage are the traits of the Heroes of Ethan's stories. The bad guys are mostly just stupid. And as expected from the imagination of an eight year old the stories are full of improbable plots, twist and turns, and the convenience of having the ability to create and magically wish away the problems and shortcomings as they appear in the natural arc of the storyline. Otherwise great stuff for an eight year old.

It was fun to see the world from an eight year old perspective. (As a side note: We have broken a generation of children with our recycling propaganda, in Ethan's stories there is literally a specific trash for everything. Even the heads of bad guys get a specific trash bin; clown heads in one, general thugs in another.) It was also fun to relive some of those old imaginative stories I at least made up when I played with my action figures, full of the same plot holes and improbable twists as Ethan's stories. But they get old story after story, eventually you want something that makes sense and isn't going to go sideways just because it can

This is a lot better than the previous trades, both plot-wise and action-wise. Axe Cop quickly is becoming a favorite. I admit I didn't give him much of a chance in the beginning, but of course the two were experimenting with the character and his friends.

The fact that Ethan keeps his little brother's imagination alive while adding depth and plot is amazing, not to mention his fantastic sketching skills.
