Andre the Giant: The Life and Legend

Box Brown     Recommended by Alan    

A gentleman among pro-wrestlers of the 80s, Andre the Giant was a legend and his life is poignantly represented here by Box Brown in his graphic biography. Known to another generation for his role in the movie ‘The Princess Bride’, he became an acclaimed figure in popular culture.

Born Andre Roussimoff, Andre had a condition which meant he never stopped growing, peaking at seven and a half feet tall, and weighing over 600 pounds. While he knew early that his life would be short, he lived his life to the full and honourably.

Box Brown’s graphic portrayal reflects his own love of Andre and wrestling generally. Contributions from many characters, including Hulk Hogan and Robin Wright.
