Axe Cop; or How Visuals can Affect your Presentation

Recently I heard about Axe Cop from a friend on Facebook. It's the story of a cop with an axe who fights bad guys. The great thing about this story is that it's told by five year old Malachi and illustrated by his 29 year old brother Ethan.

What would have been a silly story told by a child is transformed by the visuals into an internet sensation. Over Christmas break between 2009 and 2010 Ethan and Malachi were playing and the story for Axe Cop came out. Ethan drew it and put it online and since then things have exploded. They now have a publishing contract with Dark Horse Comics and will be making some real money - from a kid's made up story.

That, my friends, is the power of visuals paired with words.
