Episode 178

It’s so nice to be back, and to have pages to post.  One of my favorite scenes in the history of Axe Cop continues.  Sometimes in an Axe Cop story we fly from scene to scene, but every once in a while it works better to follow the action from punch to kick to punch, and that just felt right in this scene.  I love the idea of a live action Axe Cop martial arts film.  Some day just maybe it will happen… after seeing Axe Cop come to FOX, airing right after Family Guy, truly anything can happen it seems.

 

Some interesting videos have been released.  Here is an interview with Axe Cop on USA Today.  This interview was actually scripted off of a recorded phone call between Malachai and me.  A video featuring Nick Offerman and me was posted on E! about voicing Axe Cop.  There were also a couple of other videos on TV Guide interviewing Offerman and Ken Marino (Flute Cop) as well as Matt and Dave (writers on the show) and Nick Weidenfeld (the head of ADHD).  This is all to lead up to the true premier of Axe Cop and FOX ADHD this Saturday night at 11:00 pm (pacific time).  The epsiode will be called “Zombie Island in Space” and it’s nothing short of epic.  This episode uses  the “Ultimate Battle” story line as source material, so review that if you want to do your homework.  Zombie Island in Space is its own story though, so don’t get all anal about where the two are different.  To fit the 40 page Ultimate Battle storyline into 11 minutes would not do it justice.  We decided the best thing to do would be to extract multiple stories from it… so this episode takes the Dr. Doo/zombie portions of the story and saves the Baby Man, Lobster Man and other elements for later.

 

I’d also like to remind you that I do another web comic called Bearmageddon.  It is not for kids, but it is a horror/action/comedy and those who give it a try seem to really enjoy it.

 

Lastly, if you ordered anything from me for the Wedding campaign, have no fear.  I am in the midst of order fulfillment now that Comic Con is behind me.  I’m going to try to get all that stuff mailed out in the next couple of weeks.

Episode 177

What a week!!! Sunday night, the Axe Cop TV show aired for the first time ever on FOX, and 2.6 million people watched Axey help Bat Warthog Man find his stolen friends. If you missed the episode, watch it now online!  And make a GIF.

Comic Con was insane.  Here are a few highlights…

-ADHD panel footage where I sat among celebrities and talked about Axe Cop  (look in related videos for additional snippets)

more on that here.

-the Axe Cop panel was probably our best yet.  Malachai was on fire as usual, Mike Nelson of MST3K/Riff Trax moderated, Ken Marino (Flute Cop) joined us, as did Matt Silverstein and Dave Jeser (writers) and Ben Jones (creative producer) as well as a special appearance by the real Ralph Wrinkles.  Here is a play by play of the panel from Bleeding Cool.

I feel like I could report all day on what has been going on, but suffice it to say things are happening.  Malachai and the family just headed home after coming down here for Comic Con.

The new site continues to come together, but bugs are still being worked out, so bear with us.  Notice an issue?  Let us know.  This site is so much easier to update!!!

Episode 176

IMPORTANT: READ THIS POST TOO.
-DS, 7/17

Welcome to the new Axe Cop web site! Can I get a round of applause for Doug and Mike who busted their behinds to make sure Bearmageddon and Axe Cop made it back online in time for Comic Con?

I won’t be around to update on Thursday, so this is going to be this week’s post, but as soon as I get home we will be back on the Tuesday and Thursday schedule. Kailey and I have actually been cranking away on these pages because the full book that includes this story is set to print and they need it soon.

The first airing ever of the Axe Cop TV series (if you are not at Comic Con) will be this Sunday night, July 21st at 9:30pm on FOX right after Family Guy! From then on it will be every Saturday night at 11:00pm.

Going to San Diego Comic Con? Come see me at booth #1603, right next to my best friend Doug TenNapel. I have some overflow of the wedding sketchbooks, prints and new Axe Cop books to sell! Also, Malachai will be there Friday and Saturday. Here are Axe Cop related events you won’t want
to miss:

Friday at noon, Mezco Toyz booth: Ethan and Malachai signing (they will have some cool goodies and Axe Cop toyz available for the first time ever!)

Friday 6:45pm Room 6DE, FOX Animation Domination High Def Panel: this panel will cover all of the stuff FOX ADHD will be bringing to late night on FOX, but Axe Cop is considered its “flagship” show and they will show the first epsode of Axe Cop at the panel. Malachai and I will also be present as well as other talent involved with the shows.

Friday 8:00pm Room 6DE Axe Cop Panel: The main event! Please take note, this panels is RIGHT AFTER the ADHD panel and is in the SAME ROOM. So it is the perfect double feature. We will also show the Axe Cop episode at this event and, this just in, Mike Nelson of RiffTrax/MST3K will be moderating. We have some awesome things planned for you guys, and Malachai is excited to choreograph some cosplayer fights.

Please note that FOX ADHD is hosting a special showing of Axe Cop at 8:30pm on Friday night in their tent, but that conflicts with the Axe Cop panel, so really, you should come to the panel it’s just going to be a lot cooler.
