But it’s the Rugburn-produced motion comic AXE COP—not the yet-to-premiere animated version that will debut in July as part of Fox’s ADHD adult animation block.
Whoa, are you confused yet? Perhaps. But the bottom line is…there can not be too much AXE COP. You’ll recall that the webcomic is written by 5-year-old Malachi Nicolle and drawn by 29-year-old Ethan Nicolle. Well, that’s how old they were when this whole thing started—Malachi is now 9 years old. His maturing themes and concerns are not displayed in this short, which is based on “THE MOON WARRIORS,” an early tale.
In the meantime, here’s a still from the Fox version.
AXE COP is currently published by Dark Horse.
