    Created by brothers Ethan and Malachai Nicolle (ages 31 and 8, respectively), Axe Cop: President of the World is a fun, crazy story that could only come from the mind of a child. Axe Cop is now President of the world and he finds out from God that the Earth will experience one million years of peace thanks to a force field God places around the planet. To say any more would ruin the fun of this book, which I urge everyone to pick up. This is great fun. Read Full Review

    Axe Cop: President of the World #1 is most likely not for everyone, but I strongly suggest you find this book and give it a shot or at least check out the free Axe Cop strips online. You won't find anything else like this in any form of entertainment…. Read Full Review

    Everyone should read Axe Cop. The notion of a child writing and coming up with crazy ideas is still fun. Just when you think you have an idea what might or could happen in the story, something even more absurd results. This is a comic to read for the pure joy of it. You won't often read a comic of this nature and it's great to have the opportunity to do so. Comics can often get too serious and it's important to have a variety and have the option of reading something fun and entertaining. If you've never read Axe Cop before, you need to rectify that immediately. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Steve Morris Aug 3, 2012

    So the story is a little thin, and relies on some strong jokes to ease readers past the awkwardness of the narrative. The characters are still fun, and they've somehow still been able to find ways to keep Axe Cop himself enjoyable, even with all the twists and changes made to him over the past three years. The art is bright and smart, and Ethan is growing stronger at adapting Malachai's ideas. But this isn't the right format for Axe Cop, and as Malachai grows older, his stories grow more self-aware and less spontaneous. It's still a fun issue, but it's even more throwaway than ever and suggests that perhaps it's time to wind down the epic stories in favor of shorter pieces -- switching to something more like Fred The Clown's structure would work wonders for the character.
