— The long-gestating graphic novel about Andre the Giant has a release date at last. Brandon Easton and Dennis Medri’s Andre the Giant: Closer to Heaven is set to be released on December 10th. The book, which is authorized by Andre’s estate, is described as follows:
“Written by 2014 Eisner Award-nominee Brandon M. Easton with gorgeous artwork by Denis Medri, this unprecedented biography of Andre the Giant charts his earliest days on his family’s farm, to his enormously successful runs in Japan, to his heated feuds with the biggest wrestling stars of all time, to his memorable turns in Hollywood TV and cinema and to his darkest moments caused by excessive substance abuse. Based on testimony from Andre’s friends and colleagues – including his daughter Robin – this is the story you’ve never been told about Andre “the Giant” Roussimoff.”
