The Universe according to First Dog on the Moon


The end times are with us. We live in the dark heart of Earth’s final days, the planet’s creeping twilight, hurtling liminal, crepuscular, toward the grinding demise of Gaia. Struggling vainly, clinging wretchedly to our world’s crumbling, degraded crust – we seek answers, we seek even a dim light to guide us. As the grim parade of our broken lives shuffles past us, we need leaders, philosophers, great writers and artists to pierce the murk of ignorance and illuminate how we came to be here and how, if at all, we can crawl back from the precipice. Who will guide us through these dark times? Probably not First Dog on the Moon – he is too busy drawing pictures of marsupials and then laughing at them while in the bath. This is the First Dog on the Moon story.


First Dog on the Moon (aka Andrew Marlton) is the Editorial Cartoonist for online e-zine, <http://www.crikey.com.au> He is a merciless lampooner of anyone that gets his goat, yet is by all accounts a lovely fellow. His hilarious cartoons are available on t-shirts but not yet underpants. He has more Twitter followers than you.
