Your Friday Awesome: Axe Cop
What happens when a 29 year-old decides to draw a comic written by his 5 year-old brother? Pure awesomeness, that's what.
Axe Cop seems absolutely insane to us who have been brainwashed by the logic of adulthood. But in kid world it makes perfect sense. Does the character eat something or accidentally get the blood of something on them? Oops! Now you are part lobster! Uh-oh! Now you can throw avocado grenades! Also, your name will be determined by your characteristics and/or powers, and it will change as they change - unless of course you are the main character. Also? Poop.
Its also a pretty interesting manifestation of how kids absorb the construction of heroes and villains. Notably, all of the main characters are men and with few exceptions the women that show up are bad or not so nice. So I appreciate the 29 year-old's attempt to incorporate more female superheroes.
