FREE DOWNLOAD ´ Andre the Giant M 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 figure. I was in seventh grade in 1987 I was perhaps the perfect age for becoming desperately fanatical over the events leading up to Wrestlemania III It was the perfect combination of soap opera and athleticism My brother and I would watch WWF matches every Saturday morning I would come to school the next week and exuberate over what happened what would happen next who were good guys who were bad guys and who would win the championships Hulk Hogan Nikolai Volkoff George the Animal Steele Adrian Adonis the Honky Tonk Man Billy Jack Haynes the Junkyard Dog the Iron Sheik Hillbilly Jim Captain Lou Albano the British Bulldogs Ricky the Dragon Steamboat Kamala the Ugandan Headhunter the Rougeau Brothers Jake the Snake Roberts Macho Man Randy Savage And Andre the Giant These men were the lords on the earth They were tremendous figures though their feuds often seemed concocted even to a seventh grade meIn March of 1987 Wrestlemania III took place in the Pontiac Silverdome to apparently record attendance For whatever reason my dad took the cue that we loved wrestling and got us tickets to watch on closed circuit television along with a packed out crowd at the Anaheim Convention Center1 It was easily the most exciting thing I had experienced up to that point We roared we booed we screamed The hall was electric with fans who were deeply invested in the stuff I personally was there for the Ricky the Dragon Steamboat vs Macho Man Randy Savage grudge match I was furious with Savage and needed to see vindication for the injustices2 he d earlier perpetrated against Steamboat And honestly it was the best wrestling I d ever seenThe headlining match in which Hulk Hogan was challenged by Andre the Giant was definitely a draw but it was secondhand snuff by comparison The problem was that I just didn t like the Hulkster He always felt a bit too big for his britches he and his 24 inch pythons So when Andre the Giant began feuding with him I was like Good Take his stupid belt Devour him Really I probably just wanted Ricky the Dragon Steamboat to take the belt In any case I was expecting a good match just not a fantastic match But man we got a fantastic match And Box Brown s biography of the Giant spends a fair amount of time on Wrestlemania III and everything Andre did for Hogan in that contestHere s the real deal if you care to see ithttpwwwdailymotioncomvideox6k4I was worried that Brown s work would have arrived too late for me After all my interest in the WWF and wrestling waned sharply after Wrestlemania III My fandom wouldn t even survive to Wrestlemania IV I entirely lost track of all those characters and what they were doing or even whether wrestling still existed3 I couldn t be bothered It all seemed a bit too infantile to eighth grade me an eighth grade me who was still desperately longing for news of a potential X Men cartoon that never materialized Then a couple years later I saw The Princess Bride for the first time The movie was released years earlier but still a kid I was rather limited in which movies I had access to And besides what seventh grade boy really wanted to go see a movie with this for a posterBut at last I saw The Princess Bride and like everyone else in the world I came to adore Andre the Giant and his rhyming And yet again out of sight out of mind I didn t hear the news of Andre s death in 1993 and wouldn t discover it for another decade The next time I encountered the man was in Shepard Fairey s Andre and They Live inspired OBEY GIANT campaign Fairey created the piece in 19944 but I didn t take notice until 2000 By this point I still didn t know of the Giant s death All this is to sell you on the fact that I honestly couldn t be bothered to care about wrestling or wrestlers or the welfare of those persons It was like how I have no idea what s up with Richard Adams author of Watership Down I just had other things going on And I didn t really ever see myself reading a biography of Andre the Giant or for that matter a Richard Adams biography eitherSo when I tell you that I found Brown s telling of the Giant s life engaging and enjoyable and illuminating you can be pretty sure I m not writing from within the golden glow of nostalgia Box Brown has composed a portrait of the imposing man s life that draws together a number of fascinating pieces illustrating the terror and wonder of Andre s too short life he was six years older than me when he died of his giganticism If I have one complaint it s that I wanted Another hundred and fifty pages of vignettes of this man s life Even though there s a lot here the Giant remains an enigma as much a mystery as you or I5What Brown does well is balance a variety of portraits of the wrestler in such a way that these contrary reports of the man s actions and demeanor seem less a conflict and a variegation of a life lived in the depths of unreal struggle No matter how good and pure Andre may have been and we want him to be good and pure no one can stand up under the degree of fear he generated in those around him combined with wealth and power and popularity and come out shiny and clean That he does so well as he does remaining loved and remembered by a good number among his friends is a reminder that despite the faults he was generally a good hearted manStill those who wish to recall him wholly as the good natured Fezzig from The Princess Bride may be disappointed with the scuffing to his reputation here Heavy drinking womanizing disinterested and deadbeat fatherhood and the occasional drunken racial slur a la Mel Gibson These are among the nicks on his armour But interestingly Andre is such an unreal figure that these very human flaws serve to humanize himAnd that s probably the biggest power of Brown s toolbox He visually brings home just how ridiculously large Andre is in comparison to those around him My wife is miniature set next to me She is a foot shorter than me and I double her weight The difference is striking when we stand closely together I am not a small man And yet Andre had nearly a foot and a half on me and was nearly three of me in weight That would be daunting for anyone to confront Brown s work often invokes the term monster and that s exactly the sense that his drawings for all their almost Ware like simplicity describe Andre is monstrous Yet for all that Brown remembers to display how human he really is Was However we refer to the deceased who are also fictionalized6 characters in a bookIf visually Andre is a monster Brown is careful to keep his fragility of spirit on display as well Even in some of the exuberances of his personality the drinking the fights the belligerence it s easy to interpret them as reactions from within the social prison his form created for him Hulk Hogan himself even offers this perspective within the book We see happy moments sad moments Moments from Andre s perspective moments from the vantage of his co workers in the ring It s a solid mix and gives meat to the bones of his spiritBrown plays his storytelling rather straightforward He jumps from location to location skipping time liberally to cover forty six years in a pretty brisk hop He doesn t seem to be playing any narrative tricks prompting nuanced or complex readings of the material which is probably fitting Andre for all his mystery is still a simple and straightforward picture and anything that would distract from that would likely be a disserviceProbably whatever you remember Andre for that episode from his life will be represented The pivotal pericope however intersects perfectly with my own experience of the Giant While we get scenes from Andre s rise in the wrestling world his match with boxer Chuck Wepner and the filming of The Princess Bride it s Andre s title match against Hulk Hogan at Wrestlemania III that occupies the most space and is perhaps most lovingly recounted And Brown does a great job recreating the details and a kind of play by play of the contest while simultaneously providing background and insight into what was going on within the scene He brought to life something I had once witnessed but didn t uite apprehend and that was a lovely thing to come across so many years laterI mentioned earlier that I wished there had been pages in Brown s work here That s not to suggest that Andre the Giant Life and Legend is poorly conceived or that it leaves too many strings untangled Merely I hoped to describe that my enjoyment of the book was such that I wouldn t have minded of the same I often feel this way about graphic novel biographies It s such an easy fluid means to access the lives of others that these lives can often feel as though they are flitting by too uickly as if they are underliving their value I felt this way with Ottaviani and Wicks Primates as well Though not curiously with Ottaviani s Feynman which was thick for its short page count and perfectly essayed All this is to say that if Box Brown decides to biographize the life of Richard Adams I would not turn down the opportunity to happily read that one tooReview courtesy of Good Ok BadFootnotes1 Where they ve held Wonder Con the past couple years2 Fabricated sure but I was only tangentially aware of that back then3 Pro tip it did still exist4 It was repurposed from an earlier campaign Andre the
