Found a little internet magic that I had to share. Axe Cop


29 year old comic book artist illustrates his 5 year old brothers story.

"...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."

"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."

I can totally believe this came from a 5 year old's brain, and I mean that in the best of all possible ways.

needs a movie deal.

Gotta be better than Millar's stuff, the dialogue alone is several grade levels ahead.

Oh my god. I was unprepared for such awesomeness when I clicked this post.

Also, I think the entire comic industry would be much improved if we just replaced every writer with five year olds.

From: [personal profile] ladyvyola

After dealing with my nephews and nieces (ages 7, 5 1/2, 4 1/2, and 2), it's clear that they have a sounder grasp of the dramatic unities, characterization, plot development and satisfactory story resolution than most professional comics writers.


...than most professional writers, period.

That's better.

What does it say about us that in the end, what we really want is a comic written by a five-year-old, but professionally drawn?

I have often thought that, if your average little kid had the ability to write more or less coherently, he or she could produce some really amazing stuff, since at that point they're basically unfettered imagination. This pretty much proves that theory.
