This episode ties into the end of Axe Cop Gets Married. He is able to look at a baby and determine if it is a boy or a girl using these same powers. The bottom left panel is the closest thing to something sexual we have had in the Axe Cop comic. It’s also just really weird seeing him with no mustache. I feel like we have slowly been peeling away the mysteries of Axe Cop’s head in Ask Axe Cop. We took his hat off, we shaved his mustache… all that is left is to see his actual eyes. Maybe some day.
Just a reminder that next Tuesday, Axe Cop: Revenge on Rainbow Girl begins. Check out the interview with artist Tom Martin I posted last Tuesday and the preview art we posted.
Saturday night, one of my favorite Axe Cop episodes is airing on FOX. When Night Creatures Attack. I think I actually like it better than the Halloween episode it is based on. I like the design of the night creatures. They remind me a of a combination of the Attack the Block creatures and Sam Keith’s “Isz”.
This page was a project. Most of you, if you requested to be drawn “at the wedding” are in this picture. A few people were in previous pages. Thanks again to everyone who helped me pull that off!
So, I’m sure it is obvious this story is almost over. What’s next? Well, I’ve got plans. I will be focusing on the next Dark Horse miniseries “The American Choppers” next, which will be print-only. But I have two things to keep you busy for at least the next 22 or so weeks after this story ends, and possibly I take a short break between “seasons”.
First, I have drawn Ask Axe Cop #100, but I have only posted up to #86, so I have 14 of those to post. I will post one per week after this story ends.
Also, Tom Martin and his niece Charlotte proved themselves to be a great team on guest episodes, so we have decided to team up and let them do a full-length guest story. If you need a refresher, here is one of the comics they did for us. More on this project later!
And, as I have said, new episodes on FOX start Nov. 2!
Malachai and I are currently writing the new story and it’s awesome! I’m excited to draw the insane stuff he’s coming up with. We have created so much together I often forger how fun it is until I do it again. Thanks for reading Axe Cop and making it possible for me to have such a cool job.
