Axe Cop Bad Guy Earth #1

By Malachai Nicolle and Ethan Nicolle

A lot of folks have spent a lot of time trying to break in to comic books, and then this six year old comes along with his thirty year old artist brother, and he's published by Dark Horse. Not cool, Malachai, not cool. Except… that it is cool. Look at that cover if you need to know. It's a lizard man with a submachine gun, a flying car, and a cop with a giant axe (as promised). Comics might not be for kids anymore, but they're definitely not usually by kids. I will hold my indignance in check.

Annihilators #1

By Dan Abnett & Andy Lanning, Tan Eng Huat & Timothy Green II

What's this you say? A new mini-series with the characters left from the remains of the Marvel Universe?  Written by Abnett and Lanning? A variant cover by Mike Mignola? A backup story featuring Rocky Racoon and Groot? Does it get any better than this? I think not.  Let's go on on last ride through space with some of my favorite characters (Although I'm still pissed there's no Nova or Starlord.  What the frig?)

Conor says try:

Darkwing Duck Annual #1

By Ian Brill, Tad Stones, James Silvani & Sabrina Alberghetti

We haven't talked a whole lot about Darkwing Duck since it began but it remains one of the most fun reads out there, month in and month out. But still, I wasn't planning on picking up this Annual because… well, there are so many books, you know? But then I saw that our man Tad Stones was the co-writer and I knew that I had to get it. Plus, you gotta love a homage to Kiling Joke with ducks. (Even if it's just the cover.)



  1. I love the Darkwing Duck Annual cover; definetly a must buy.

  2. “So all I had to do was write a comic about a cop with a t-rex as his partner?”-Josh (After first learning of the history behind Axe Cop)

  3. I love the DnA cosmic and the mix of characters but a $5 cover price on Annihilators is a lot to ask.

  4. Josh that is interesting the ax cop. Look at the goon how long it took Eric Powell to get it publish by dark horse

  5. @RobotZombie  its 48 pages of content. That’s like buying 2 books worth 2.50 each! Coming from Marvel that means a lot.

  6. I would have thought that the quality of Darkwing Duck would have subsided since it’s first arc, but I have consistently been loving it. Really glad it was reccomended!

  7. Looking forward to Annihilators, hopefully the price tag won’t scare too many people off.  Like Xeno said, it’s got more content value per dollar than any other Marvel book.  Personal value may vary but I figure most DnA/cosmic fans (such as myself) would buy both of those miniseries anyway.

    Though I don’t appreciate that garish Fear Itself logo mucking up the cover… ::shakes fist::
