Mooncop / Tom Gauld.
Publication year: 2016
Publisher: [Montréal] : Drawn & Quarterly,
ISBN: 9781770462540 (hbk.) :
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, just the incremental dissolution of an abandoned project and a person's slow awakening to his own uselessness.
