Absolutely brilliant. I laughed hard.
If only the moral choices in the bible were presented so plainly. I’d have an easier life. “If they evil half offends thee, you must chop it off!” Yep. That would do the trick. Well done.
This is one of the best Ask Axe Cop’s yet. I really like the panel of the burning evil half.
Many kudos for the artistic interpretation decisions here!
In total agreement with colintron. I especially liked the decision to mix bad guy features with good guy features for the straight kick guy.
However, I noticed the changing tattoos and was curious what the bad guy tattoo was, the good tattoo (looks like an angel with a halo), and the mixed one.
Actually, the bad guy has a scorpion tattoo, the good guy has a hawk tattoo, and the guy who is both has a hawk-scorpion hybrid tattoo. Good eye.
So, are bad/good guys red/green color blind? Or do they have red/green supersight? Or strangely-tinted regularsight?
And there’s a definite Venom-symbiote vibe to the goodguy hero-suit sleep restrictions in the ACU (did they even TRY ringing a bell real loud before skipping to heart explosions?)
The great thing about Axe Cop is that there will never be a need to retcon into an “ACNU”... I’d actually posit that retconning is a meaningless term in the context of the Axe Cop Universe, as all possible McGuffins actually exist simultaneously.
By the actions of Telescope Gun Cop, we know that bidirectional, intra-continuum time-travel must exist in the ACU.
So, (much as in the classic Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure) if you need something in the ACU you just have to intend to make it possible and…bingo! I propose the term “instachronoconning,” also known as “wishing on uni-thing/person/corn”
Oh, one question.. is Malachai into any current comics? If not, even with the mixed reception the DCNU is getting, it could be a good time to get him started.
Just…please… don’t subject him to any of Rob Liefeld’s stuff (not that anyone is camping out for their issue of Hawk and Dove #1, but still).
First, it would ruin him when it comes to his understanding of female anatomy (hint..they have ribs. And feet. And faces.)
It could also plant the seed for an unhealthy obsession with pouches later in life, thereby causing him to think cargo shorts are cool (or in the parlance of Liefeld’s times…X-TREME!).
Although the cargo shorts would keep him from coming into contact with women, thus mitigating the negative effects of his anatomy misconceptions.
I tell ya what, best to just teach him to ridicule Liefeld out of the gate. Here is some great reference material: http://www.progressiveboink.com/archive/robliefeld.html
Keep up the awesome work, guys! Axe Cop gives me hope for future generations…seriously.
Excellent. This is the little boy in me talking, but all I could think about when he cut himself in half was that he’d also be cutting his junk in half. And that one ball was definitely the evil one.
@ Michael: Allay your fears, good sir. Malachai is the writer. Ethan is the artist. And, clearly, Ethan is not a disciple of the Liefeld school.
Am I the only one who thinks red-eye-green-eye guy looks like Nicolas Cage?
Does this canonize Axe Cop having green eyes under those shades?
Axe Cop sure is getting pretty surreal lately. First there was the Secret President, and now this.
It’s never been better.
As a martial artist, I hate to point out that evidently all good guys kick really poorly and probably break their ankles on a regular basis. I guess we’ll all have to grow smaller sized mustaches to keep from being in casts all the time.
Darn. It was Fourth of July. I know we are subject to malachai’s creative whims, but I was kinda hoping to see new adventures of Book Cop, the most awesome patriot ever.
But what if someone has Blue eyes or Brown Eyes or one blue eye and one bad eye?
I meant one brown eye.
