Two very odd and popular webcomics are collected in book form by mainstream publishers, while their creators continue to innovate on the fringes of the internet. Axe Cop, a fever dream of a comic featuring gun-toting dinosaurs and ninja moon warriors, is written by six-year-old Malachai Nicolle and illustrated by his 30-year-old brother Ethan. Dash Shaw's BodyWorld originated as the digital equivalent of a biblical scroll, telling the otherworldly yet strangely familiar story of a quiet community entranced by a plant with telepathic powers.
Special thanks to Mel Reslor, who edited the Dash Shaw segment, and to Liam Delta for his recording assistance on the AxeCop segment.
