Mooncop

Living on the moonWhatever were we thinking? It seems so silly now The lunar colony is slowly winding down like a small town circumvented by a new super highway As our hero the Mooncop makes his daily rounds his beat grows ever smaller the population dwindles A young girl runs away a dog breaks off his leash an automaton wanders off from the Museum of the Moon Each day that the Mooncop goes to work life gets a little quieter and a little lonelier As in Goliath Tom Gauld's retelling of the Bible story the focus in Gauld's science fiction is personal-no big explo-sions or grand reveals just the incremental dissolution of an abandoned project and a person's slow awakening to his own uselessness Depicted in the distinctive matter-of-fact style of his beloved Guardian strips Mooncop is equal parts funny and melancholy Gauld captures essential truths about humanity making this a story of the past present and future all in one
