April 26, 2011 – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
AXE COP exploded onto the net in 2010 with art by Ethan Nicolle and stories by his five-year-old brother Malachai. Axe Cop, Dinosaur Soldier, and the rest of their team fight crime . . . with Super Secret Soda Attacks, "Faint" bullets and bombs, and of course, chopping off bad guy heads!
Now YOU can be Axe Cop . . . in Munchkin! With over a million copies sold in 15 languages, Munchkin, from Steve Jackson Games, is the fast, silly card game of killing monsters, grabbing loot, and backstabbing your buddies.
"Axe Cop and Munchkin are a perfect match," said award-winning game designer Steve Jackson. "Doing this project will be total fun for me. Axe Cop has a manic energy that goes with the Munchkin story . . . kill the bad guys, take their stuff, and level up!"
Munchkin AXE COP will be a third-quarter release for 2011. Featuring the art of Ethan Nicolle and game design by Steve Jackson, the 168-card set will retail for $24.99, and will be available through bookstores, game stores, and comic shops everywhere.
