Críticas:

A 2013 YALSA Great Graphic Novel for TeensNominated for the Eisner Award and the British Comic Award"Gauld [uses] simple, clever visuals to explore the larger, more complicated issues of war and heroism."--New York Times"Gauld's Goliath is a master class in reduction...a celebration of the Christian underdog becomes a subtle meditation on the power of spin and the absurdity of war."--The Times"Gauld's sparse style captures the encroaching ennui of Goliath beautifully...Gauld infuses a parable with new meaning for a modern world, with a helping of melancholy but sweet humour to boot."--National Post"Quick to read but easy to consider and reconsider, the humor and pathos in Goliath's worldview requires longer thought... An eminently discussable graphic novel."--School Library Journal"Tom Gauld's tragic, darkly funny retelling of David and Goliath from Goliath's perspective. Gauld's work is always quietly powerful and emotionally grabbing."--Boing Boing"Working with cartoony figures, silhouettes, and finely cross-hatched close-ups, Gauld captures the bleakness of the landscape, and how what looks like an insignificant pebble from far away can become hugely important when it's landing right between the hero's eyes."--AV Club"Gauld's stripped-down drawings, all boulders and blank faces, are perfect for his bittersweet tale, and the book itself is a lovely addition to any shelf."--Flavorwire"Tom Gauld's new comic-book, starring Goliath as an unassuming army admin clerk pushed into a situation he neither wants nor understands is a work of depth, pathos and beauty, with the sublime craftsmanship anyone who knows Gauld's work would expect."--It's Nice That In [Gauld's] version, Goliath is no bloodthirsty caricature, but a crack penpusher for the Philistine army who is forced into facing down the Israelite army by an unscrupulous superior. Stranded on the frontline with his young shield bearer for company, the main part of the story is about loneliness and losing control of your own destiny, with the muted brown palette reflecting the bleak situation Goliath inexplicably finds himself in. It's Nice That on Goliath Gauld s stylistic toolkit clean lines, simple shapes, and crosshatching so thick it s nearly fabric makes it all a pleasure to behold. He mines comedic gold from deadpan reaction shots so well timed you could set a watch by them and, weirder still, some tragic oomph for the hapless sucker. Booklist on Goliath Satan, as we know, has had all the best tunes and much of the best literature since Milton's Paradise Lost (1666). [Goliath is] a graphic novel by the acclaimed cartoonist Tom Gauld, the story of David and Goliath as seen from Goliath's side of the Valley of Elah.

Reseña del editor:

This is the story of David and Goliath as seen from Goliath's side of the Valley of Elah. Goliath's battle is simultaneously tragic and bleakly funny, as bureaucracy pervades even this most mythic of figures.
