Buy This Book: Box Brown’s ‘Andre The Giant: Life And Legend’
By Chris Sims
f you’d asked me three months ago what my most anticipated graphic novel of 2014 was, I could’ve given you the answer without even having to think about it: Box Brown‘s Andre the Giant: Life and Legend, a comic book biography of one of the most famous professional wrestlers of all time. Admittedly, I’m right smack in the center of the target audience for that book, but there’s so much about the man that’s fascinating, and Brown’s work as a Xeric Grant and Ignatz Award-winning cartoonist is top notch — it’s something I feel like I would’ve been interested in even if I was going into it cold, with no knowledge whatsoever of the world of professional wrestling.
The book isn’t out until May, but the book’s publisher, First Second, sent over a review copy and I couldn’t wait to read it. It’s the sort of book that I knocked out in one sitting, and it lived up to every hope I had for it. It’s not just one of my favorite graphic novels of the year, but it’s also one of my favorite comic biographies of all time.
