And that is that! Thanks for following along on the adventures of Axe Cop versus the Songster. It was fun to revisit Axe Cop with Malachai a bit older and partnering with Parry Gripp was a privilege. We are going to come up with a cool package to sell this story and music as one item for those interested, I’ll post it on the blog here when it comes out. Thanks again to Parry for all his tunes. This was a lot of fun.
I won’t be posting new Axe Cop material for a while. Come see me over at Bearmageddon.com and keep tabs on me on Patreon, Twitter and Facebook to find out when other projects are being released.
I’m so excited to be merging the motion comics voice of Axe Cop, Dave DeAndrea, into this project. Click the track to hear Dave rock the vocals on Axe Cop’s song Foxes the Size of Couches.

We have some exciting plans for this comic. It’s already got songs. What if I said video game? That’s all I’ll say for now.
Next week: Axe Cop sings. I haven’ heard it yet, but I’m pretty excited.
I’m down to just a few of these prints left. They are hand-printed and hand-detailed, signed and numbered.

Thanks for reading! New song next week.
The Songster isn’t afraid to genre-jump midset. He is, afterall, the Songster, not the rockster or the R&Bster.
Funfact: in today’s song the banjo solo is played by me. I recorded it on my phone and sent it to Parry. My wife got me a banjo for Christmas so I have been playing it for a few months. This is my first time playing, or recording publicly. I love playing banjo and it is coming a lot more naturally to me than expected, though I have a long way to go. I’m no Scruggs.
Read the next page, get all my pages in high res and more on Patreon starting at only $2/month.
In other news… I think I am going to stop producing Ask Axe Cop episodes, at least until I finish this story. I am doing too much right now. Doing so many different projects I am not finishing any of them. Songster pages will keep coming out on Thursdays and Bearmageddon always comes out on Wednesdays.
Well, there is no song on this page, but it’s coming.
Next week I will be taking off because I’m in Oregon. In fact tonight is my event at the Egyptian Theater in Coos Bay!
I’m on vacation, so I’m not gonna write any more. Thanks for reading!
The Songster begins!
Just wait, this is Axe Cop’s first musical. We’ve teamed up with Parry Gripp to make this comic reading experience audible as well. Every time a page with a song is posted, there will be a new Parry Gripp song posted with it. It won’t be on every page, but it should average out to every 2-3 pages.
Tonight at 7pm (pacific time) Parry and I will be on Facebook Live to talk about this comic, answer questions, preview a song and generally chat it up. I will also be drawing one person as an Axe Cop style hero or villain. We always have a lot of fun on our live broadcasts (usually Thursdays at 5pm but this week 7pm).
Also, Ask Axe Cop starts on Monday. If you are one of my Patreon members you have already read both, since all Axe Cop material posts to Patreon one week early for $5/month and up members. Join today and you can read the next page of this story right now.
Want a signed and numbered limited edition screen print? Want a coupon code for 25% off? Here you go! coupon code: SONGSTERRIFIC. This sale lasts only until the next page posts (one week)!
