Fox to Adapt Comic Axe Cop for Late Saturday Night Animated Series

Axe Cop by Malachai Nicolle and Ethan Nicolle

Fox has optioned the comic Axe Cop to be one of its recently announced late-Saturday night animated series. Six quarter-hour episodes have been ordered to premiere on the network early next year. The comic has its own website, AxeCop.com, which has chapters and episodes available to view.

Bad guys beware! Evil aliens, run for your lives! Axe Cop is here, and he's going to chop your head off! We live in a strange world, and our strange problems call for strange heroes. That's why Axe Cop — along with his partner Flute Cop and their pet T-Rex Wexter — is holding try-outs to build the greatest team of heroes ever assembled.

Created by five year-old Malachai Nicolle and illustrated by his older brother, the cartoonist Ethan Nicolle, Axe Cop Volume One collects the entire original run of the hit webcomic that has captured the world's attention with its insanely imaginative adventures. Whether he's fighting gun-toting dinosaurs, teaming up with Ninja Moon Warriors, or answering readers' questions via his insightful advice column, "Ask Axe Cop," the adventures of Axe Cop and his incomparable team of crime fighters will delight and perplex even the most stoic of readers.
