Well, just when I thought the legendary saga of the comic "Axe Cop" couldn't get any more awesome, Steve Jackson Games announced today that the newest expansion to their genre-spanning card game Munchkin will be.....Munchkin: Axe Cop!
From the Daily Illuminator:
"So . . . you guessed it . . . that big new Munchkin announcement we've been promising is Munchkin Axe Cop!
Axe Cop and Munchkin are a perfect match. Doing this project will be total fun for me. Axe CopMunchkin story . . . kill the bad guys, take their stuff, and level up! has a manic energy that goes with the
Munchkin Axe Cop will be a third-quarter release, featuring the art of Ethan Nicolle. It will be a stand-alone Munchkin core set."
If you're unfamiliar with Axe Cop, it began as a collaboration between Ethan Nicolle (the comic's 29-year old illustrator) and his 5-year-old brother, Malachai (who comes up with the storylines and characters). Yes, you heard that right, it's a comic essentially written by a kid...and it's awesome.
