Early next year, FOX will start airing a late night Saturday block of cartoons called ADHD: Animation Domination HD. One of the most talked about shows will be Axe Cop, based off the comic book by the same name.
In this first clip from the show, Axe Cop answers a child’s question about how he likes to spend his Halloween.
Here is the official story of how Axe Cop came to be:
The AXE COP saga began on a Christmas visit to see my family. My Father, a man with very healthy loins, has managed to produce a variety of children, ranging from me, a 29 year old comic book artist, to my 5 year old brother Malachai, a 5 year old boy genius, with four other siblings in between. During the visit Malchai was running around with his toy fireman axe and he said he was playing “Axe Cop.” He asked me to play with him, and I asked what my weapon was… so he brought me a toy flute (actually a recorder). I told him I would rather be Axe Cop then Flute Cop, and he seemed just fine with being Flute Cop. The story that followed became more and more brilliant, until I couldn’t contain myself and I had to draw the whole thing into a one page comic. From there the saga continued, and over the course of my week-long visit we cranked out the first four episodes of AXE COP.
