I’m a big fan of Axe Cop by Ethan Nicolle and his little brother Malachai, so when Ethan emailed me and asked me to do a pin up for his next Axe Cop book, I was super excited, but me being the slick promoter that I am (that’s sarcasm folks), I sheepishly asked if I could include The Possum in the pin up, fully expecting him to say “well, it should really be just Axe Cop and Axe Cop characters”, but to my delight, the Ethan’s reply back was as follows: “Yeah go ahead! You can even. Do a one page comic if you want with axe cop and the Possum in it.” Somehow I weaseled my way into doing a 2 page crossover, written by my kids, Avery (age 8 ) and Jacob (age 6) and drawn by yours truly!
Go to AXE COP.COM to read the full 2 page team up extraordinaire!!
If you’re not familiar with Axe Cop, I highly recommend checking it out! Axe Cop is written by Malachai Nicolle (age 6 now, I believe) and is drawn by his older brother Ethan Nicolle (age 30 now, I believe). Read the whole story here!
YES, YES and YES AGAIN!!!
The two characters blended in perfectly. Add to that the delight of your two kids creating some hilarious new villians, well, this was a great little team-up for all involved, especially us readers.
Sneaky about putting your character in a pin-up of another creator’s character. Don’t know if anyone has ever had the gall to do that to a request of mine…. 😉
This was hilarious. But the absolute best moment for me was the “Oh no, I’m out of farts” sound effect. “Poit” was perfect.
No offense to your writing skills, Blair, but you need to get your kids to script more stuff. Too funny!
Hey Tobin! I’m thinking that I’ll have to do a full Possum issue some day with Mosquito man and Fartman, and get my kids to write it. I’d love to see them come up with some origin stories for the characters.
(although at the rate I’m getting comics done, they’ll be in high school by the time I get to it)……. (I’ll have to get them to write it now).
