Axe Cop – Capturing childhood stories for a lifetime

axe_copAxe cop isn’t a game, but it’s exactly the kind of parent (or brother in this case)/child relationship we are trying to promote with A Gamer’s Education.  Ethan Nicolle draws the comic ‘Axe Cop’ based off his little brothers (Malachai Nicolle) stories.  It captures the mind of a 5 year old and puts it on paper.  I am guessing it has created an amazing relationship between the two of them as well.  From Axe Cop’s ABOUT page…

“The AXE COP saga began on a Christmas visit to see my family. My Father, a man with very healthy loins, has managed to produce a variety of children, ranging from me, a 29 year old comic book artist, to my 5 year old brother Malachai, a 5 year old boy genius, with four other siblings in between. During the visit Malchai was running around with his toy fireman axe and he said he was playing “Axe Cop.” He asked me to play with him, and I asked what my weapon was… so he brought me a toy flute (actually a recorder). I told him I would rather be Axe Cop then Flute Cop, and he seemed just fine with being Flute Cop. The story that followed became more and more brilliant, until I couldn’t contain myself and I had to draw the whole thing into a one page comic.”  Read more…

A great video of their creative writing process.
