Mooncop / Tom Gauld, 96 pgs.

Like all cops, Mooncop likes coffee and donuts.  Living on the moon seemed like a good idea but now the colony is winding down. The donuts were served through a machine but corporate has now upgraded to a staffed store.  This clerk may actually be the last "civilian" after an early settler and her dog take a transport out.  Mooncop isn't working to hard on crime but his requests for transfer have been denied.  You wonder if it is a bureaucratic mix-up, just like the decision to place a store where a kiosk once worked. Gauld's drawings are so simple yet convey so much.  I love his work and this is no exception.
