Page 197 – Tag!

The battle continues, and family tag-team metamorphosis does as well.  Nothing quite like a dog, double-monkey-bat, t-rex axe cop.  I don’t even know what to call him at this point.

I’m excited that River City Ransom: Underground funded.  There is still under 24 hours left to help them reach stretch goals.  One thing I know about video games on KickStarter is that their finding goal is usually a bare minimum, so any added funding will expand the horizons of the game.

Well, my 3 year old step son Ezra is hanging out with me right now and asking me a ton of questions as I try to type this.  We just made a robot coloring book.  As he was coloring he said, “Ethan, life is hard.  Life is hard ’cause when you color you get out of the lines.”  I’m going to go ahead and end this blog entry now so I can soak up more deep thoughts.  Thanks for reading!

Introducing the alien king behind it all, Cauber Helen (pronounced Cobb-er Hell-en).  I remember when I designed this character, I really liked the design but was not really excited to draw it multiple times.  Part of the reason finising this book out became so work intensive.  Here is two of the first concepts I came up with for the character.  I pretty much went with the one that doesn’t look like a whale.

We’re heading into finale territory here!  I’m excited to finish this story out.

Hey look a new page!  I don’t have a lot to say right now, it’s been a hectic day.  But you could go check out friend of Axe Cop Michael Regina’s new project on Kickstarter, Adamsville.

Page 184 – Bridal Party

I decided to use some of Malachai’s mispronunciations of bridal party terms, like “Bride’s Mates” and “Ring Berrier”.  Hopefully it is funny and not simply confusing.  Malachai is a seasoned Ring Berrier, he bore the ring at our brothers Noah’s and Isaiah’s weddings, and then he was ring berrier coach to my step son, Ezra at my wedding.

Alright Ezra, get it together.  THIS IS YOUR BIG MOMENT. -actually quote from Malachai at the wedding

 

And yes, Tom Nicolle is our dad.  The 72 year old father of kids ranging from me to Malachai.  If you have ever met my Dad he loves to talk about spiritual things, and so he will be officiating at Axe Cop’s wedding.

Well I am trying to get a lot done today, because tonight I am going to see Riff Trax Live: Starship Troopers!  Should be fun.

Welcome back!  Those of you who had your fists clenched in outrage at Axe Cop’s lack of moral fiber can now rest easy.  He would never decimate two provinces just to impress a girl.  OK maybe he would, but he didn’t this time.  Axe Cop only does that sort of thing when he has a bad birthday party.

 

Want to read the source material for the new Axe Cop TV episode coming up on Saturday night?  Read Axe Cop Babysits Uni-Baby.  The most obvious difference will be that we replaced Dinosaur Soldier with Sockarang, but Sockarang needed an episode and his personality really worked well for this episode and, though at first it felt weird for me to make that change, I love this episode and I honestly think it is better than the comic version.  If you went to our panel at San Diego Comic Con you already saw this one, but it is definitely worth a second watch!
