I know it isn't exactly news – or even related to video games – but if you don't know what Axe Cop is, you're missing out on one of the most hilarious things on the Internet.

I'm not going to try to explain all of the reasons why Axe Cop is great...but I will try to explain one of them. The comic is drawn by artist Ethan Nicolle, and written by his five-year-old brother, Malachai.  According to Nicolle's post on Axe Cop site: "The writing process is basically just me quizzing Malachai as he develops the saga. I'll just try to pry all the details out of him and write them all down until something like a complete little story has been formed. Everything in AXE COP started in Malachai's head, all I do is sort it out and draw it." For the whole story, click here.

Needless to say, the comics that result from this collaboration are amazing. Click here for the first episode!

I've been reading the comics since the site got popular back in January, but just today I learned that there are also videos of the first two episodes. If I didn't pass along this glorious news, I would be a terrible friend to you. So sit back, watch the videos, and be sure to check out the Axe Cop site regularly.
