You Need To Go Now ~AND~ Read Axecop (UPDATED)

This one comes late in the day, straight from the Twitters (via Lucas Turnbloom, creator of Imagine This and the latest participant in the Digital Strips Adventures experiment) and it will make your day, no doubt about it.

Reading like an Adult Swim bit, Axecop purports to be written by 5-year-old Malachai Nicolle and his brother, 29-year-old Ethan Nicolle. The story behind the strip is strange and fascinating enough, but it’s when you actually get to the “story” that the true magic begins.

Try, just try to imagine the kind of things a child would conjure up to be drawn by a very capable comic artist, and then multiply that by at least a hundred. Seriously, this is just stupid, madcap, beautiful, zany, insane stuff and you would be an idiot for not checking it out ASAP. And if that weren’t enough, it also offers up a slick website that features a Flash comic reader unlike any I’ve ever seen. Go scan through a strip or two and tweet it to the mountaintops, like every other creator on Twitter has been doing all day.

UPDATE: And… this comic has officially blown up. Entertainment Weekly decided to make Axecop their Site of the Day and BAM! The site is suspended. Of course, I like to think that my scoop here contributed to this monumental overflow of bandwidth, but regardless, Axecop ain’t goin’ away any time soon! And when the site comes back up, you can find that out for yourself as well.
