Axe Cop: American Choppers – Here to Defend America!
From the press release:
AXE COP RETURNS WITH AMERICAN CHOPPERS!
Critically Acclaimed Nicolle Brothers Deliver Killer Miniseries!
FEBRUARY 21, MILWAUKIE, OR—Fresh off their television debut on FOX’s Animation Domination High-Def, Ethan and Malachai Nicolle return with a three-part miniseries chock full of action in Axe Cop: American Choppers!
“Axe Cop is comics taken straight back to their source — to a child’s unharnessed imagination. And there’s also axes.” said Axe Cop voice actor Patton Oswalt.
President of the World Axe Cop reunites with Super Axe (an old friend from college), and the two decide to start a superteam of axe-wielding heroes to defend America—the American Choppers. They are joined by Captain Axe, Axe Girl, Axe Woman, Axe Dog, and other axe-wielding heroes. The only problem is that there are no bad guys left, but that all changes when mysterious giant creatures attack the city!
Praise for Axe Cop:
“The brilliance is precisely a function of its incongruity.”
“Axe Cop emerges as a wacked-out, irreverent hoot, full of colorful absurdities.”
“It’s a nonsensical but inventive and purely entertaining takeoff on superhero tales.”—New York Times
“So engaging that you can’t help but read this book all in one sitting.”
