Today’s reason to live: Axe Cop gets animated
Via Screen Rant:
Fox TV has announced plans to use the Web comic Axe Cop as a means of introducing its new late-night animation block intended to compete with Cartoon Network‘s [adult swim].
The series tells the tale of a cop who wields a firefighter’s axe as a weapon and frequently issues threats to chop heads off with it. The series includes a flute as the cop’s partner, a gun-toting Tyrannosaurus Rex and a magical baby with a unicorn horn.
Malachai Nicolle, who created the series with his 29-year-old brother Ethan in 2010 (when Malachai was just five), writes, outlines and acts out Axe Cop while Ethan serves as the series’ primary artist.
