Axe Cop, the web comic created by brothers Malachai Nicolle (age 8) and Ethan Nicholle (age 32), has been quite successful with the internet crowd. Who knew that a comic written by an 8 year old and drawn by his older brother would be so popular? Well, apparently Fox found out, and has decided to give Axe Cop a proper 11 minute television show as a part of its new Saturday Night Animation Domination High-Def (ADHD) block.
The show will star mustachioed gentleman actor Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreations) as the axe wielding police officer Axe Cop. Fellow cast members include Megan Mullally, Patton Oswalt, Ken Marino and Peter Serafinowicz. Axe Cop is set to join High School USA!, another animated show starring Mandy Moore and created by Dino Stamatopoulos (Morel Oral, Mary Shelley’s Frankenhole).
