Andre the Giant: Life and Legend

by Box Brown

It’s a graphic novel! It’s a biography of Andre the Giant!

For anyone who watched him wrestle on television, this graphic novel is a neat look into the life of Andre Roussimof. Made fun of because of his size, Andre struck gold with the world of professional wrestling. Wrestling was an activity and profession that celebrated and rewarded him for his size.

There’s not much to this biography, but I felt that I learned a little bit about the gentle giant who won so many hearts on television and in film (The Princess Bride). I do think that the graphic novel is an excellent medium for a biography of this sort.
