Tom Gauld: Goliath


Graphic novel presentation

Goliath accompanied by the critic of comics El Tío Berni and the illustrator Puño.

Created by one of the most celebrated authors of comics in the UK, Goliath is an ingenious demonstration of sensitivity combined with bold design which reconsiders, reworks and revolutionises this traditional biblical story.

He provided the illustration for Ted Hughes’s children’s book The Iron Man and designed the cover for the luxury edition of The Three Musketeers published by Penguin Books.

His stories have appeared in the last three editions of the anthology of comics Kramers Ergot. In 2008 he was artist in residence at the Fumetto Festival in Lucerne, Switzerland.
