On Friday, July 21st, from 12noon-1pm, both writer, 8-year-old Malachai Nicolle, and artist Ethan Nicolle, will appear at Mezco's booth # 3445 to sign Mezco's Summer Exclusive Axe Cop Badge prop-replica.

Autograph sessions with both creators are very rare so this is a very special event for Axe Cop fans. This will be their only scheduled autograph signing at SDCC. Malachai's autograph is especially sought after by fans, as he rarely does signings because of his young age.
