Q Magazine’s comics reviewer Colin Smith reviews Tom Gauld’s Goliath

Cutting to the verdict: “if there’s been a finer achievement in the medium this year, the blogger’s missed it. Goliath’s a must buy experience.”

Goliath by Tom Gauld

By inverting the myth of Goliath, Gauld evokes the sense that time’s running out and the end cruelly and irresistibly approaching which so many of us feel in our darker hours. At the same time, he also suggests that our freedom of action is severely limited in a world in which all of the power and little of the responsibility appears to rest elsewhere.
