Mooncop by Tom Gauld

Mooncop Read Online Free - "Living on the moon . . . Whatever 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.

Every single time I read a graphic novel I'm reminded of HOW MUCH I LOVE GRAPHIC NOVELS. This one was no exception, Mooncop was absolutely wonderful 😍 It's a tiny story about a cop who works on the moon when everyone is leaving and he has nothing to do. He's lonely and melancholy but peaceful and...

Sparse, subdued, existentialist, melancholy, wryly humorous, and maybe even a tad romantic: I liked it quite a bit. 3.5 stars, I’d say.

Simple and melancholy. But there's donuts. Space donuts. Really enjoyed this.

"Living on the moon. Whatever were we thinking? It seems rather silly now." Here's a taste of it on vimeo: This is my third book from Gauld, the London Guardian cartoonist. I loved the spare and wonderful Goliath, and the funny collection of cartoons, You're All Just Jeal...

A lot of old-school sci-fi as well as the hyperbole that spewed out of the 1950s/60s American space program promised lunar colonies and mostly portrayed it as desirable. Tom Gauld pokes gentle fun at that naivety in Mooncop, imagining what life would be like if we did have a moon colony. The answ...

Wonderful little melancholy story with imagery that'll stay with me for a while...BUT too dang short for a book that cost me nearly 20$. Took me less than a half hour to read.

Rating: 4* of five All cops in noir stories eat donuts and drink coffee. Of course they buy them from the local shop. [Mooncop] is 96 pages of Gauld's quiet storytelling. He isn't aiming for humor and he doesn't shy away from silence. It is deeply satisfying to be taken by the hand and led to the pl...

Awwwwww! This was such a lovely and tender little read and I'm grateful for the recommendation of it. Mooncop focuses on a police officer who lives on the moon, who performs the same tasks day in, day out, which isn't a lot really. There are no crimes on the moon but there are lunar donuts which h...

What a fun, clever little book. I mean, I read it in like ten minutes. Reminds me of Douglas Adams, but with more minimalism and ennui. The illustrations are simple but great and effective. Check it out!

Questions of duty, loneliness and the future are all addressed in this slim yet powerful GN. I would like to offer my first 'book and song' pairing (kind of like wine and cheese): listen to Jonathan King's Everyone's Gone To The Moon while you read this book...
