Andre the Giant, Paperback / softback Book

Andre the Giant Paperback / softback

Description

Andre Roussimoff is known as both the lovable giant in The Princess Bride and a heroic pro-wrestling figure.

He was a normal guy who'd been dealt an extraordinary hand in life.

At his peak, he weighed 500 pounds and stood nearly seven and a half feet tall.

But the huge stature that made his fame also signed his death warrant.

Box Brown brings his great talents as a cartoonist and biographer to this phenomenal new graphic novel.

Drawing from historical records about Andre's life as well as a wealth of anecdotes from his colleagues in the wrestling world, including Hulk Hogan, and his film co-stars (Billy Crystal, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, etc), Brown has created in Andre the Giant, the first substantive biography of one of the twentieth century's most recognizable figures.
