Wow…just, wow. I like it!
Good to see some action on the site, and especially good to see more of Book Cop’s adventures.
Reading the title of his book, I assumed at first it would be a colonial era retelling of the origin of Spider-Man.
This might be the worst thing I’ve ever read. I am not one to “dog” the guest comics.. but.. what the heck?
This might be the best thing I’ve ever read.
(Sorry about you, Matt.)
Book Cop Reads might seriously have some legs as a feature, fellas.
I love it! It very little to do with Axe Cop, but I think that might make it better, it’s completely good and weird in its own way.
That was terrible.
That’s fairly fd up.
Yep, too long. And stupid.
I thought it would be a retelling of Charlotte’s Web. But it was still good, albeit in a surreal way.
well I for one thought it was quite amazing
both endings were very good very good
That was the worst guest strip on any web comic ever. If you are going to suck, keep it short and sweet. Epic fail.
It was okay. About as random as any Axe Cop adventure. It doesn’t have the standard gravitas of Book Cop tearing up large pieces of earth and eliminating the entire British army, but as a kind of thumbnail parody of literature of Book Cop’s era, it was pretty good.
This is an entirely different kind of “what the heck?”
I personally would’ve liked to see Book Cop in a sunglass-monocle. THAT would be intimidating.
It was okay. The fancy script was a bit hard to read on the page. Not my favourite guest comic, but a good effort nonetheless.
The messed up story was rather funny!
That was just absolutely amazing. I never usually comment on anything online, but I feel inclined to say I actually said out-loud, completely to myself “THAT. WAS. AMAZING.”
Rarely do things get a reaction from me like that. Quirky and unpredictable writing at its near finest. Anyone who debunks this as drivel just doesn’t get it, and I feel sorry for them, I really do.
Kudos to the guest writers! The only ones make something worthy of standing alongside the original series!
It’s not about “not getting it”—it’s about leaving a bad taste for those who appreciate the series’ light-hearted approach (even when violence is involved). this effort here is a classic case of trying too hard to be funny and failing. the attempts at randomness fall flat because they don’t involve a kid’s logic trying to tie things together. they are just purely random. and not to mention the format is way longer than a typical axe cop without even 1% of the humor.
I would be hesitant to unleash any more guest strips that could potentially damage the good will that’s been established by Axe Cop. It has a great reputation for loose, crazy fun that could be hurt by any more overly-contrived trash like this.
ANYHOO, can’t wait for the upcoming printed series from the real McCoys. Keep choppin’...
Wow, Brade and others, seriously? We’ve already gone through this when guest strips originally made an appearance. They’re not made to be like Axe Cop, or even to be the same type of “funny” or “random” as a five-year-old’s imagination. They’re just something extra that comes out to provide a bit more content on the site and let other artists take part. If you don’t like it, GET OVER IT. No one forced you to read it. Sure, feel free to voice your opinion and talk about what you liked or didn’t like about it, but simply heaping abuse on it and saying it could “damage the good will that’s been established by Axe Cop” is just crap and doesn’t help anything. Not everything that comes out on this site is tailored to your individual tastes.
You might be right. I was in a weird mood yesterday. Still, I think we can agree that “fan fiction” has skewed the perception of many a once-proud franchise.
Book Cop is a true hero of yore! He should have a damn PBS show that is exactly this format. He reads a twisted story to a villain and then kills him with the book at the end. He could be the new Alistair Cooke!
Sorry if you 14 year olds who didn’t like this also don’t know who Alistair Cooke is.
Sorry Ryan, but Alistair Cooke was already parodied by PBS, in the form of Alistair Cookie on Sesame Street.
Delightfully absurd. What a hilariously disappointing ending to that story. More book cop tales? Yes, please.
