I decided to try something new. I got together some old artwork from a show pitch I created and used it to build this web site called Rocket Monster Story Club. It’s a lot like Axe Cop, except it’s not created by me and my little brother. It’s created by me and your kids. Any kids. All kids. It’s been a lot of fun so far, and if you sign up for the email list you get a free 65 page kids book I made about a boy who builds a friend out of the mess in his room and goes on an adventure fighting worms, poodles and giant bugs called I Named My Toys Alex.
Some of my favorite images to come out of this experiment so far are the Meat Unicorn…
This alien hamster who gets very upset and turns into this man eating beast with no hands, named Banana.
And this bad guy named Donedee. A shark who sits on a merry-go-round eating and drinking.
So, between this, my writing job, Bearmageddon and the books I am working on, I won’t be making more Axe Cop for a while. But I wanted to do something in the spirit of Axe Cop that was a little more kid friendly and interactive. I hope you’ll give it a chance and show your kids, or share it with your friends who have kids. There is no charge or catch, it’s a total creativity free for all. Check it out, and if you enjoy it, please share it.
Ethan will be appearing at Rose City Comic Con in Portland, OR, next weekend (September 20-21) at the Oregon Convention Center. He’ll be at table B-10 if you want to stop by.
Tickets are sold-out at this point, so Portlandians, if you want a ticket, the event page suggests visiting a local purveyor of comic books, many of whom apparently have some reserves.
If you’re looking to buy any We Love Fine Axe Cop t-shirts for your loved ones for Christmas (or if you just want one for yourself), you can score 15-25% off your orders on Black Friday/Cyber Monday.
Just use the codes BLACKFRIDAYTSHIRTS15 (or BLACKFRIDAYTSHIRTS25 if you spend more than $100) on Black Friday or CYBERTSHIRTS15/CYBERTSHIRTS25 for the same thing on Cyber Monday.
You can peep what’s available right here.
Howdy all, Doug here, since Ethan’s on the road to SDCC.
We’re really excited with the new look and feel, but we need your help!
The site is still in a bit of flux — for instance, character archives aren’t complete, the videos section needs some love and comic archives will be a work in progress for a bit longer, but the comics are all there. It’s pretty much a guarantee that there will be kinks to iron out.
So, with that being said, if you notice a bug or something a bit amiss, would y’all mind dropping me a line via this handy-dandy little form right here? I’d be much obliged.
