    "Axe Cop" being adapted for Fox.

    Like This Thread!
    Axe Cop, the web comic created by then-five-year-old Malachai Nicolle and drawn by his older brother Ethan Nicolle, will be adapted into an animated series for Fox‘s upcoming late-night animation block, Animation Domination HD. The series, which started out as a series of Facebook posts in 2009 before it became a Dark Horse title, will possibly hit the air in the 2013-2014 season.
    Full story here.

    YEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!

    I hope they keep it absurdly silly and don't try to make it "edgy" or more "adult" or something.

    This could be pretty cool, as I enjoy the Axe Cop comics.

    Like Sparticus mentioned, I hope they don't try to make the series too "adult and edgy". As long as the show is given a TV-PG rating, it should turn out alright.

    A long time ago I discussed with a guy and he thinks that in some ways its bad that a show being made based on a webcomic is bad, because now everyone would try to make a webcomic, hoping they'd get a show deal, crowding the market with even more lousy comics.
    Of course, that's likely not true, considering how anything with quality on the internet will get praise and recognition over poorly made comics.
    Ah well, only time will tell....

    First look in the form of a Halloween short. Nick Offerman is voicing Axe Cop himself, and even though I never watch Parks & Rec (or any sitcoms, really), he's practically perfect.

    Nice video. That short was just like something you would see from the Axe Cop comics, so now I have high hopes this show will be good.

    You probably know this by now but the show is going to be a part of the new Saturday Animation Domination block which has been delayed till July.

    Must've forgotten about that when I asked that question in July. xD
