Andre the Giant / by Kyle Vernier


As a kid I wasn't a huge wrestling fan. I remember watching it from time to time. I was aware of the main wrestlers. I had a few action figures. But I didn't keep up with it the way a lot of the kids I grew up with did. But I've always been a fan of Andre the Giant, I think everyone one was. Anyhow, this graphic biography of Andre the Giant is pretty great. Box Brown has a sort of Osamu Tezuka style, he draws in this simple cartoony way and the format is similar to manga volumes. The book is also well researched and includes a bibliography in the back. The book is a fun read and I really liked it.
