This is honestly the best graphic novel I've picked up in some time. (Frankly, it's almost a picture book, or advanced Children's book - for adults. A short story with art.) The panels, they are just great. The art is crude, but so appropriate you forget its simplicity. The story is an absolute classic, at once sad, ironic, heart warming, tragic, funny, it's a perfect retelling of the classic David and Goliath narrative.

If you are at all considering reading this, I highly recommend it. It's very short (20-30 minute read) so be prepared to pick it up and then lend it to all the people you know who should also read it!
