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.
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.
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.
I’m headed off on a trip to Oregon for about two weeks here, so I will be skipping a week after next week. If any of you want to send me a guest comic, I might be inclined to post it during that time. Email me if you are interested: [email protected]
The Songster prints are here! These are hand screen printed, 16×20. I hand-detail each one. See the video below. Because I am doing work on every print, I am lowering the availability of these to 50. I have already sold a good amount but if you want yours, get them while they last!
If you are anywhere near the small town of Coos Bay, Oregon on the 16th of March, stop by the Egyptian Theater. This is my home town and I will be having Axe Cop Night, where I will do a little presentation about creating Axe Cop and showing 6-8 of my favorite episodes.
Huge thanks to Parry Gripp for making such sweet music for this project. I can’t wait until it is all done and we have the coolest comic/album ever.
Read next week’s page and see this one in super high resolution when you join me on Patreon. Here is some recent Patreon bonus content for $5-10/month:
All right, song 2! I feel like PT makes this feel like Axe Cop’s “Temple of Doom” story. I don’t know. Thanks Parry for giving us more beats to get down to. Part two comes next week, or you can get the full origin on Patreon.
