    Press Release:

    TOM GAULD will be signing GOLIATH at the Forbidden Planet store in Cambridge on Saturday 10th March from 1 – 2pm.

    Goliath of Gath isn’t much of a fighter. Given half a choice, 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. If he be able to kill me then we shall be your servants. But if I kill him, then you shall be our servants.”

    Day after day he reluctantly repeats his speech, and the isolation of this duty gives him the chance to banter with his shield-bearer and reflect on the beauty of his surroundings.

    This is the story of David and Goliath as seen from Goliath’s side of the Valley of Elah. Quiet moments in Goliath s life as a soldier are accentuated by Tom Gauld s drawing style, which contrasts minimalist scenery and near-geometric humans with densely crosshatched detail reminiscent of Edward Gorey. Goliath s battle is simultaneously tragic and bleakly funny, as bureaucracy pervades even this most mythic of figures.
