Page 216 – Some bad guys have tails

Not having much of anything to say today, I guess I’ll plug myself.

I do illustration and design for hire. Check me out here at my page. Contact me if you have something you want me to scribble. Here’s a recent project I completed for an AT&T conference done in my best attempt at a Jack Kirby style, of all things.

I also do vocals in Lich King, we do 80s thrash metal. I understand there’s likely not much organic overlap between Axe Cop and thrash metal fans, but screw it, we go where the fun is. We have a song about Axe Cop that Ethan’s been kind enough to spam to you a few times. Here’s that and a couple of other jaunty ditties.

We’re touring in March down the east coast with our pals Exmortus. If you’d like to come out and see the (other) guy that draws Axe Cop making a fool of himself on stage, here are the dates. Click the image for more details. Y’know. If details are what you’re into.

That’s it for this week. Next week, Rainbow Girl and the fire-breathing dragon strike.

KIDS’ QUOTES OF THE WEEK

Charlotte’s playing Minecraft and flying over a desert. A forest appears.
Charlotte: “Oh look, I can burn down the forest and build a house there!”
Me: “Why do you have to burn down the trees to build a house??”
Charlotte: “Because we need space!”
Me: “I think you just want to play with fire. There’s
space in the desert, why don’t you build a house there?”
Charlotte: “Because sand is stupid! …Okay,
now let’s light some trees on fire.”
                                        -Charlotte, 8 years old

The kids are being shown STAND BY ME.
Charlotte: Why do they keep saying the F word?
Amelia: I don’t hear it, all I keep hearing is “f***.”
                                        -Amelia, 6 years old

  1. Ha! Army Chihuahua FINALLY shows a trait worth having him on a team.

    I love all the bad guy facial expressions and, hey, they’re not all the same skin tones. Of course, we usually see them in B&W and/or at night.

  2. As the Rainbow Girl arc continues, I am liking more and more the “Passing the mantle” concept more and more. It’ll be interesting to see the direction the new artist/kid combo takes Axe Cop in when Amelia gets too old.

  3. Not that related to the axecop, but is there anywhere in Australia which sells Lich King merch? As I am not too fond of the shipping rates.

  4. Ah yes, the F word. A perfectly innocent word that can accidentally be stumbled across by playing the “vocabulary game”.

    “Let’s see: there’s an awful lot of words that end in Uck. Luck, Stuck, truck…”

    “Maybe we should go through the alphabet and figure out all possible combinations! A-uck, no, Buck, already taken, Cuck, sounds like a chicken or something, Duck, already taken, E-uck, doesn’t work, Fuck, hmmm that sounds like it could be something. I wonder why no one uses it?”

    “Maybe a fuck is a fat duck? Like ‘we should stop feeding breadcrumbs to all these fucks’.”

    It went on like that for some time and then Mom came over and flipped out for no reason at all and forbade us from talking about fat ducks. Crazy adults.

    • Wikipedia on The Name Game: “Playing the game with names such as Alice, Dallas, Tucker, Chuck, Buck, Huck, Bart, Art, Marty, Mitch, Rich, Richie, Maggie, Judy, Ruby or, in British English, Danny or Annie, can lead to giggles and/or scandal.[citation needed]”

      This is the first comic page without alt text in a while.
