- Lion Forge Comics last week released the authorized graphic novel biography, Andre the Giant: Closer to Heaven. Eisner-nominated writer Brandon Easton (ThunderCats, Marvel's Agent Carter) charts Andre's entire life story in an introspective first-person narrative he crafted with assistance from Andre's daughter Robin Christensen-Roussimoff. The book opens on the idyllic farm in the French countryside where Andre spent his childhood and steadily weaves through his amateur early days in the squared circle, his rise to fame in TV, film, and Vince McMahon's upstart WWF (now WWE), and the demons he collected along the way.
