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.
Charlotte: “I give this… a 10.”
Daddy: “Aww, thank you Charlotte.”
Charlotte: “…out of 20.”
                                        -Charlotte, 8 years old

Walking around somewhere:
“Can you pick me up, Unca Tommy?
My feet are getting hurting.”
                                        -Amelia, 4 years old

Page 200 – Stab!

I love stabbing people with major bodies of water.  Leaves no evidence, it’s clean, refreshing, good for you and the environment… the Water Queen is modeled after my wife in her look, but in this scene she also resembles how thorough and thoughtful she is.

 

Anyway, as I said last week… I’ll be at Comikaze Expo in Anaheim right at the beginning of November.  You gotta come.

 

Also, for our next online Axe Cop story line I have a bit of a surprise for you.  More on that soon.

P.S.  Hey, look it’s page 200!  Yay for arbitrary milestones!

Page 198 – Water and Power

Truly, this has become a family affair.  They are going to have quite a story to tell about their wedding day, I tell ya!  I remember my main thought drawing this scene was “Yes!  please, kill Cauber Helen so I don’t have to draw it ever again!!!”.

Want some good news?  New episodes of Axe Cop are set to air on FOX starting Nov. 2.  That is less than a month away!  I’ve seen a few of them already and I can assure you they are awesome.  The night creatures episode in particular is really well done.

That’s all I have to report right now.  Thanks for reading!

Page 194 – Ultro Power

When Malachai suggested this, I assumed “Ultro Power” was a real thing from a cartoon on TV.  I tried to Google it and could not find it anywhere, so hopefully we are clear of copyright infringement.  Super Hypno Monkey Bat Man is enough of a risk.  Anyway, never underestimate the power of a good high five.

 

I got to see a couple episodes from the next season of Axe Cop and they’re awesome.  I have to admit, these were episodes I did not get to be as involved with as I wanted to be, but I think they nailed it.  The next season airs in November, so get ready!
