That's why Axe Copandmdash;along with his partner Flute Cop and their pet T. rex Wexterandmdash;is holding tryouts to build the greatest team of heroes ever assembled.Created by five-year-old Malachai Nicolle and illustrated by his older brother, the cartoonist Ethan Nicolle, Axe Cop Volume 1 collects the entire original run of the hit webcomic that has captured the world's attention with its insanely imaginative adventures. Whether he's fighting gun-toting dinosaurs, teaming up with Ninja Moon Warriors, or answering readers' questions via his insightful advice column, "Ask Axe Cop," the adventures of Axe Cop and his incomparable team of crime fighters will delight and perplex even the most stoic of readers. Axe Cop debuted in January 2010 to glowing reviews from Entertainment Weekly, Wired, and dozens of other newspapers and magazines.

Axe Cop: the name says it all. One day a cop found a magical axe and used it to fight crime. Around the same time, five-year-old Malachai Nicolle teamed up with his professional artist brother Ethan to write a comic book. Ethan took Malachai's words—which usually involve explosions, aliens, and secret attacks—and gave them a visual flourish. And thus Axe Cop was born.

I'm glad this exists if nothing else. Honestly I think it got a little too insane for me to properly like but I like that there is this brother/brother team making a comic of the epic battles you'd make up in your head when you were five. Imaginative is the word here but I think my favourite parts were the Ask Axe Cop sections. Probably because they were short and sweet. Art wise I don't think anyone could have done a fire breathing T-rex with machine guns for arms any better

This book was conceived and written by a 5-year old. And by that I don't mean it was like it was written by a 5-year old. I mean it was actually written by a 5-year old, no lie. And not some 5-year old genius prodigy or anything like that. Just a regular 5-year old. So, as you would expect, the plot is not good. The art is pretty cool (the art is not drawn by the 5-year old) and the drawings sometimes enhance the humor and might get you a few laughs, but mostly it's just inane babbling, as you would expect when you read something written by a pre-schooler. I do not recommend it for adults or anybody over the age of like 7-8 tops. If that's something that you are interested in, that's cool. Just thought you might like to know what to expect. For me, it seemed worth giving a shot, but it's definitely not for me. It is very imaginative and creative, but it just doesn't read well.

I don’t read many graphic novels. But my husband does, and he will inevitably pick up any that I bring into the house. He got about a third of the way through Axe Cop and gave it back to me saying it reminded him of Captain Underpants. After reading it myself, I have to agree with him. That’s not a criticism. Our son was a great fan of Captain Underpants and I will definitely be recommendingAxe Cop to him.

The most imaginative graphic novel I have ever read. I have not read anything with such wonderful child like enthusiasm since Calvin and Hobbes.
