Andre the Giant

Closer to Heaven

This is the story you've never been told about Andre "the Giant" Roussimoff.

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.

"A surprisingly touching narrative that reveals a new side to Andre 'The Giant' Roussimoff. . . . With a voice and tone perfectly matched to Andre's demeanor, Easton's writing brings Andre back to life."—Brutal Gamer
