Axe Cop: The Best Comic Ever!!!

I've been reading comics since 1973 and have found what is obviously the BEST COMIC EVER!

Check it out: http://axecop.com/

Okay, while it may not be the pinnacle of the art form I definitely laughed out loud several times. Short story, a 5 year old describes scenes/situations to his 29 year old brother who crafts the nonsense into a comic. And he does a really nice job of it too. "Funny" is fairly tough in comics and this guy pulls it off.

I also found a "Making of Axe Cop" video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kQiCwmolnYw

Anyway, I hope you enjoy!

Saw a link to this yesterday and immediately became a fan. As the guy at my comic shop observed, five year old kids have their fingers on the pulse of what is awesome.

It's kind of ridiculous how awesome that comic is. I would buy a collection of these strips.

Isn't it though?!? The little "Ask Axe Cop" feature are great too. I'm especially partial to #2: Have You Ever Been In Love?

Wow, I clicked on this thread expecting some sort of sarcastic joke.

That webcomic is actually very entertaining. The 5 year old is a much better writer than Bendis.

What is this Atomic Robo of which you speak? I couldn't find much about it, other than "buy it in stores".

Its an independant bout a robot that Tesla built and is sentient. Has adventures in the same vein as Hellboy. Main reason I like it so much is that its feels fresh to me, not one of the big 2's never ending EVENT OMG WORLD CHANGING SERIES that happen every six months.
