This Is What Joe Quesada Would Call, "High Concept"

Axe Cop is getting picked up by Dark Horse.

For those of you not familiar with Axe Cop, it's actually a very...interesting strip.  It is a web comic about a cop armed with an axe who fights dinosaurs and moon ninjas and shit.  Some of you are probably thinking, "What, is the writer five years old?"  As a matter of fact, he is!  Malachai Nicolle is the writer.  He's five.  His much older brother, Ethan Nicolle, draws it out and puts it online.  Not only has it garnered a huge cult following (those of you who complain there's nothing original on the web, here ya go, what are your other two wishes?), but proceeds go to Malachai's college fund.

Axe Cop Volume 1 streets on Dec 20, paperback.  Just goes to show ya, a good hook is all you need to break into comics.
