Moondog is a sci-fi fantasy series from fanzine veteran George Metzger that features a blind shaman (named Moondog) in a postapocalyptic world that has completely broken down and hosts only small groups of survivors and survivalists. Moondog leads his followers on a journey towards some sort of utopia and encounters various mystical adventures along the way.

There is some interesting writing and innovative comic illustration in Moondog, but ultimately it doesn't engage quite as well as some other works in the same genre (The First Kingdom comes to mind). I am not a big fan of most of Metzger's work and Moondog does little to convince me that he was an exceptional sci/fi fantasy comics creator (a genre that I actually enjoy very much, as demonstrated by my reverence for Heavy Metal.)

That said, if you are a fan of complex/mystical science fiction fantasy comics, you should check out Moondog, because there is plenty of meat on these bones and you might like the taste of it more than I did.
The Print Mint produced approximately 20,000 copies of this comic book. It has not been reprinted.
