— LionForge Comics has released the following synopsis for their new Andre the Giant: Closer to Heaven graphic novel, which was written by Brandon Easton with art by Dennis Medri. It releases next week via IDW Publishing:
We all know who he is and we all remember the first time we saw him: Andre the Giant, towering over his opponents in the ring, a brute force of nature with a gentle smile and breezy sense of humor, an apparent contradiction that created a magnetic attraction to his fans. True pro wrestling fans know all the ups and downs of his career and everyone else knows him as an ‘80s pop culture icon, the lovable giant in The Princess Bride. But few know the true life story behind the legend, a story more incredible than anything that could be concocted for a Pay-Per-View special. This is the story Lion Forge Comics is bringing to fans in the authorized graphic novel biography, Andre the Giant: Closer to Heaven.
