To give fans an idea of what's to come, Fox has released a Halloween-themed Axe Cop short, the first bit of animation we've seen for the upcoming show. In perhaps the most inspired (or maybe obvious) comics-adaptation casting since Patrick Stewart was given the role of Professor X, Nick Offerman, also known as Ron Swanson of NBC's Parks and Recreation, is the voice of Axe Cop. Full video after the cut.
The Axe Cop cartoon is meant to air in April 2013. It's not known yet whether or not Offerman will be the regular voice of Axe Cop, but given the recent connection made between his Parks and Recreation character and another popular comic, it would seem his involvement in any sort of comics project would be more than welcome.
