This is my 6th book that I read for the YALSA Best of the Best book challenge I will also say I would not have read this book without doing the challengeand I'm glad I read it But on that laterSo Malachai and Ethan are brothers They wrote Axe Cop together Before each section of the book there is a note written by Ethan In the first note I learned that Malachai is 5 and Ethan is 29 or at least they were when they wroteillustrated this Ethan went home and was playing with his much younger siblings Malachai pulled out a fireman's axe and decided they would play Axe Cop Ethan being an illustrator drew the various adventures that they played Axe Cop is a zany character in an even strange world There is a baby with a unicorn horn on her forhead Axe Cop's best friend is Sockarang a guy who has socks for arms There are moon ninjas that are also vampires but good ones don't worry There is The Best Fairy Ever who is pretty much just like her name And then there are the bad guys There are ducks with exploding eggs evil zombies that eat everyone bad robots and aliens who are just plain bad There are parts that are various bits of Malachai's imagination Then there are the Ask Axe Cop parts where people asked uestions and Malachai figured out an answer These were my favorite parts of the whole book I literally laughed out loud on almost every page I can see why this is such a popular comicI basically loved the book which was unexpected seeing how I don't tend to like most graphic novels I think the reason that I loved it so much was that I read it as someone who loves to see the crazy things that come from a kid's imagination I think if I were trying to read a graphic novel that had an over arching story line that made me think for hours on end about lifeI would hate this But since I just love seeing how funny things are when a kid is in charge of a world and a cool character like Axe Cop then all I can say is Where is the next one The only thing I didn't like was at the end small bit of a spoiler here the main bad guys were an army of poop Yeah that is totally something a 5 year old would come up with And I can see a lot of people thinking it is funny It mostly grossed me out But it doesn't mean that I still don't think highly of the whole Axe Cop process and the fact that they stuck with the storyline that came from Malachai Good book Funny read

It seems I’m a bit late to this party since I missed Axe Cop as a webcomic Nevertheless I must now have my say this concept is absolutely genius and the execution is one of the funniest things I’ve ever readA few years ago Ethan Nicolle was playing with his five year old brother Malachai and decided it would be fun to take Malachai’s imagined play and illustrate it as a superhero comic It all started when Malachai took a toy police officer and added a firefighter’s axe They grabbed another figure and the nearest weapon like implement at hand—a recorder which led to Axe Cop’s first partner Flute Cop—and went to chop off the heads of dinosaurs and other sundry bad guysIn his book Killing Monsters Why Children Need Fantasy Super Heroes and Make Believe Violence Gerard Jones argues that the young use violent fantasies as a way of coping with their real life powerlessness smallness and helplessness—the point is not mutilation and bloodshed but power a desire to have some kind of ability to control their circumstances young people use fantasies of combat in order to feel stronger to access their emotions to take control of their anxieties to calm themselves down in the face of real violence to fight their way through emotional challenges and lift themselves to new developmental levels The violence is pretend in its purest form and in no way reflects any desire to do actual harm; it’s all about wanting to deal with forces beyond their controlSo in Malachai’s fantasies we see plenty of violence but all in the uest for power to vanuish scary bad guys And because he is only five we get none of the worries with logic or consistency or reality that too often limit the imaginations of older writers as Dav Pilkey talks about with Ook and Gluk Kung Fu Cavemen from the Future with wild and hilarious results Axe Cop doesn’t just have a pet T Rex he has a pet T Rex that breathes fire has a super duper fast bite wears cop glasses and a cop badge shaped like himself has robot machine gun arms feeds on bad guys can fly to catch bad guys on the moon and sun and has spikes that only stab you if you are bad and whose worst enemy is a lamp that comes alive early in the morning Axe Cop is constantly holding tryouts for partners to make himself powerful and even gets a part time job at a fruit stand so he can afford to buy guns When he encounters a giant robot with two swords and one eye that is too big for head chopping with an axe Axe Cop from nowhere pulls out a baby with a magical unicorn horn to throw at the robot’s eye and explode its head Axe Cop doesn’t just chop off the heads of bad guys he also shoots them blows them up poisons them and uses any other form of death dealing Malachai can imagine He also never rests because he spends each night sneaking into bad guys’ houses to kill them in their sleep But don’t worry there’s a morality to it all—if he could do anything he wanted he would make a bomb that only kills bad guys and would make sure to turn all the aliens evil before killing them all so that no one undeserving has to dieEthan takes these wild imaginings and brings them to life splendidly His illustrations are fun and he does his best to accurately portray Malachai’s intentions without parody or satire so they end up “realistic” than cartoonish or stylized If only all five year olds had someone like Malachai to bring their imaginations to life this way because the opportunity to share in them is a joyful delight
