In the virtual reality game The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners multiple references to the Axeman can be found. A character references him in dialogue, and a special axe can be found in a safe with the phrase "the Axeman cometh" on the side. There is a reference to him liking jazz, as well as his famous quote from the infamous Axeman's Letter which is used to describe the special axe that can be found, known as the Esteemed Mortal. The Axeman's first physical appearance in game was " The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners – Chapter 2: Retribution"
The Times-Picayune, played up these murders to the salacious hilt, says Gibson. The stories were often speculative and fantastical, tapping into fears of the supernatural and the occult.
The Axeman of New Orleans was a serial killer who terrorized New Orleans, Louisiana from 1918 to 1919 and was known for killing his victims with an axe and other sharp objects he could find the victims’ homes. The Axeman was not caught or identified, and his crime spree stopped as mysteriously as it had started. The murderer's identity remains unknown to this day, although various possible identifications of varying plausibility have been proposed. On March 13, 1919, a letter purporting to be from the Axeman was published in newspapers, saying that he would kill again at 15 minutes past midnight on the night of March 19 but would spare the occupants of any place where a jazz band was playing. That night all of New Orleans' dance halls were filled to capacity, and professional and amateur bands played jazz at parties at hundreds of houses around town. There were no murders that night.  Michael and Annette’s marriage, a marriage that was legal in some states but illegal in others, has parallels with the gay marriage debate in current society. Is it fair or valid to draw a parallel between the legalisation of inter-racial marriages and the legalisation of gay marriages?

She woke up on the evening of August 5, 1918, to see a dark figure looming over her bed before bashing her face in with an axe. Anna managed to fight off the Axeman and was later found by her husband who immediately took her to the hospital. My suspicion is that there's some kind of racial or ethnic anxiety, that he perhaps has this resentment of these not-quite-white foreigners who are doing better than he thinks they ought to be doing," says Davis. A large part of the book is an exploration of the culture of New Orleans – its music, its folklore, its French heritage, its unique racial mix – which of these elements did you find the most interesting and why?If you wish you may tell the police to be careful not to rile me. Of course, I am a reasonable spirit. I take no offense at the way they have conducted their investigations in the past. In fact, they have been so utterly stupid as to not only amuse me, but His Satanic Majesty, Francis Josef, etc. But tell them to beware. Let them not try to discover what I am, for it were better that they were never born than to incur the wrath of the Axeman. I don't think there is any need of such a warning, for I feel sure the police will always dodge me, as they have in the past. They are wise and know how to keep away from all harm.
