Last night when I was in the middle of reading this book, I took a break to post a status on Facebook: "Reading Axe Cop makes me happy. So, so happy." My wife, who was beside me on the couch, commented: "It's been fun to listen to you giggle." --- I'm not sure anything else really needs to be said, but I will say more anyway because I have so much fun with these stories. Every page, it seems, Malachai's chain of reasoning--as brilliantly illustrated by Ethan--goes somewhere outrageous that makes me laugh. I kept thinking to myself, "That's the bit I'll quote in my review to capture the essence of Axe Cop," but then the next page I'd think it again, and again, until I now have too many to choose from and don't know how to pick just one. It's just so much fun watching him take concepts he's encountered in books and video games and the like then spin them into his own stories uninhibited by logic or the usual adult concerns. --- As Ethan says in his introduction to the episode "The Power of Christmas" in this book: "I think there are plenty of quintessential Axe Cop elements in this tale. Cuteness, monsters, magic, candy, tragedy, heroism, and of course mass genocide. I get warm fuzzies every time I re-read it." --- Reading Axe Cop is the chance to re-experience the joy of unrestrained childhood imagination and narrative thinking.
