Page 217 – Bright, hot rainbows

“…and then Rainbow Girl shot a rainbow up in the air. It was so bright and hot that some of the good guys fainted.”

The last panel is one of Amelia’s contributions, and though it doesn’t happen often, the text there is exactly as she said it when she was telling me the story: “the dragon breathed fire and never died until the end.” It’s got that kid storytelling thing to it, where saying that a big bad guy doesn’t die while you’re fighting him is making the story exciting. I love it. Anyway.

Last week our GET REVENGE ON RAINBOW GIRL contest wrapped up. Our winner is… Aaron Pokoj. His revenge scheme is as follows:

“Rainbow Girl and the dragon fuse, creating Fire-Rainbow Girl, who then promptly eats Lightning Boy to steal his powers. At this point, Axe Cop is discouraged, but then Mr. Stocker reveals that he actually had super powers all along! He grows to a massive size and fights the new monstrosity, paralyzing it. Axe Cop kills it by chopping off its head. He then takes the monster’s bones to make a new surprise-proof suit, and takes the exact change needed to buy a smoothie out of its pocket. He then cuts off Mr. Stocker’s head for lying about not having powers.”

Poor Mr. Stocker. But really, if you’re going to be on a crime-fighting team, you have to divulge these things right away.

KIDS’ QUOTES OF THE WEEK

they’re eating dinner that daddy has prepared.

Walking around somewhere:
“Can you pick me up, Unca Tommy?
My feet are getting hurting.”

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.
