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

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.
Say what you want about bad guys, but they’re big fans of diversity.
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.
Thanks! This isn’t a permanent thing, Ethan and Malachai will be back. I appreciate your saying this though.
You didn’t link “All Hail/We Came To Conquer?” “ED-209?” “Behaver?”
Nope nope and nope. If you’re trying to hook people, give them the goods right up front in a tidy demo package, not a wall of links and videos.
To each his own, I guess… but I’d still have linked “ED-209” over “Wage Slave.” Just sayin’.
What word in that song could be construed to the F word?
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.
Seriously though, I want to give you money in exchange for product. So if I could get a response that would be cool.
We don’t have distribution anywhere, the only place to get our stuff is at our webstore I’m afraid.
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.”
This is the first comic page without alt text in a while.
Why can’t you use Alice or Dallas? It can’t be because of “malice.”
I couldn’t think of alt text for this week.
Think “ph”. 🙂 Might depend on accent slightly.
is ethan going to draw axe cop again?
NEVER! Yes, and soon. I believe he’s drawing the next story now.
Yeah, I am currently working on the new Dark Horse miniseries “The American Choppers”. It won’t publish online. It’s the follow-up to Bad Guy Earth and President of the World.
Plus I post an Ask Axe Cop every Thursday so…
