This week’s addition to The Bookshelf is one of the best webcomics of all time in printed form. Axe Cop is drawn by Ethan Nicolle and written by his 5 year old brother, Malachai Nicolle. This book collects the first year of Axe Cop’s website.
The story is about a cop… with an axe… that fights crime… ALWAYS! It may not sound like a much, but I think you need to read it to truly appreciate it. There’s a reason why this was picked up by Dark Horse Comics for a mini-series.
Its filled with dinosaurs, superheroes, unicorns and talking animals and a dude with socks for arms. Really. This can’t really be explained, but its exactly the kind of stuff you’d expect to spring from the mind of a 5 year old kid. Check out the site at www.axecop.com.
Hey everyone! I made a few changes to the site that I hope everyone likes.
First off, I finally got a ‘Home’ button on the menu bar. I’ve been fighting with that for nearly 2 weeks, but stumbled across a really simply fix that made me feel really stupid!
Secondly, if you’ll look just to the right on the menu bar, you’ll see a ‘Features’ tab. This is a quick link to the non-comic posts on the site. This includes ‘The Bookshelf’ and blog posts.
Just to the right of that is the new ‘Contact us’ tab. Just click on it to send me a quick e-mail.
Also, I’ve started The Superpower Union Handbook. Give it a quick read through to better know all the people and places of The Superpower Union. I’ll be updating this as new places/people are introduced.
And concluding out guided tour of the site, I added a few buttons to quickly get the word out on ‘The Superpower Union’! Now you can visit the facebook page, add to StumbleUpon, check out the RSS feed, post a link on reddit or just digg it, all at a click of a button.
If anyone notices any issues with these features, please let me know.
When an archeological dig uncovers a Nazi bomb left over from the war, a bomb carrying a deadly virus that will wipe out every person on Earth in a matter of days, an experimental device must be used to save the world. A team is sent back in time 24 hours to stop the bomb from detonating, but instead is sent back to WW2!
I really enjoy reading about history, so any story featuring a secret Nazi plot to take over the world definitely interests me! Radical has put out some great books recently, and this is one of them.
The story follows a group of orphans that have been taken in my brilliant scientist, who has given his wards a series of implants, giving them super powers. He’s training his team to help bring down his former colleague who is using the same implants for more sinister means.
Usually, I’d have just passed over this book, but it was being pushed by the guys at the local comic shop because there is a local connection; the writer Kurtis J Wiebe is from right here in Saskatoon! I thought I’d offer some support for a local writer and maybe drum up some business for him lol!
Its a good read, plus a giant cyborg bear just reeks of awesome!
