Tom Gauld

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 revolutionised into a classic tale of Gauld's very own.
