Vancouver Sun selects Goliath as one of five graphic novel picks of 2012

“Five graphic novel picks from 2012” / VANCOUVER SUN / SHAWN CONNER / December 17, 2012

Goliath (Drawn and Quarterly) – Readers of the New York Times Sunday Magazine may recognize Tom Gauld’s work; the Scottish cartoonist’s repurposed stick figures accompany the weekly Riff column. Actually, Gauld’s work isn’t quite as simple as “repurposed stick figures” makes it sound, and he imbues this retelling of the David and Goliath story with pathos and a lasting, sweet melancholy. (96 pps, hardcover, $19.95)
