Description

Since the 2011 release of Goliath, Tom Gauld has solidified himself as one of the world s most revered and critically- acclaimed cartoonists working today. From his weekly strips in the Guardian and New Scientist, to his lauded graphic novels You re All Just Jealous of My Jet- pack and Mooncop, Gauld s fascination with the intersection between history, literary criticism, and pop culture has become the crux of his work. Now in paperback, with a new cover and smaller size, Goliath is a retelling of the classic myth, this time from Goliath s side of the Valley of Elah. Goliath of Gath isn t much of a fighter. He would pick admin work over patrolling in a heartbeat, to say nothing of his distaste for engaging in combat. Nonetheless, at the behest of the king, he finds himself issuing a twice-daily challenge to the Israelites: Choose a man. Let him come to me that we may fight. Quiet moments in Goliath s life as an iso- lated soldier are accentuated by Gauld s trademark drawing style: minimalist scenery, geometric humans, and densely crosshatched detail. Simultaneously tragic and bleakly funny, Goliath displays a sensitive wit and a bold line - a traditional narrative reworked, remade, and revolutionized into a classic tale of Gauld s very own.
