Axe Cop: Bad Guy Earth #3
By: Malachai Nicolle, Ethan Nicolle
Just when you thought the ground–breaking hit comic Axe Cop couldn’t get more awesome, it gets MORE AWESOME!
Axe Cop is in big trouble! The authorities are on his case, he’s on a crazy time–travel mission to try to save the dinosaurs from a horrible war with aliens, and while he’s been away, a team of evil brothers has been assembling a massive team of bad guys bent on taking over the earth! But with the help of his awesome crime–fighting team, including Dinosaur Soldier, Sockarang, and the mighty doggie hero Ralph Wrinkles, Axe Cop might still be able to save the planet. But there’s one more battle for our brave axe man in blue, and he must time–travel to the age of swords to make it all happen!

Okko: The Cycle of Earth
It is the Winter of 1109 in the official calendar of Pajan. Okko and his faithful campanions arrive at the City of Black Powder, escaping from the bloodthirsty battles on the Plains of Pajan. While seeking a guide to help them cross the perilous Mountains of the Seven Monasteries, they meet a skillful warrior woman: Windreaper (Fauche-Le-Vent in French). A scout with information for Okko is murdered and consequently their path crosses that of two sinister monks bearing on their tengai a raven emblem, symbol of dark foreboding! The group sets off to the monasteries to investigate this mysterious brotherhood..
Still on the trail of the demonic monks, Okko and his companions climb the immense mountain known as The Roof of the World and reach the myterious eighth monastery. There they gain entrance to the forbidden library, the heart of Pajan’s knowledge, and discover the dark secret of their enemies: an army of the dead from the bowels of the earth prepares to invade the kingdom…

    My cat regularly listens to the entire episode of Critical Hit with me, but I’ve often wondering if it matters what is being played, or if it’s just the sound that makes him curious. While I enjoyed this episode of the Major Spoilers Podcast tremendously, it seems that Shiggy is in fact only interested in the adventures of the Torqueltones.

    I’m glad you guys returned to Okko, Water was an interesting story, and I like these follow up trade reviews you guys are start doing more of. Keep up the great work!

    If I were stark raving rich like a man of iron
    I might not be surprised to find
    That I actually had the hard-cold
    To follow an entire story line

      But would I really even need
      To read upon all those escapades?
      I mean who needs such distractions
      When your assistant’s such a babe?

      It’s the last line of next verse I always forget the words to. ;)

        But the downside is such a beast.
        Bein’ shot up in a fun-vee in the middle east,
        with a gang sign throwin’ soldier…
