CM Podcast 193 – Andre The Giant: Closer to Heaven GN

Are you a comic fan? Are you a wrestling fan? If you are both then we have a comic for you!

This week we are reviewing the Graphic Novel – Andre the Giant: Closer to Heaven. It is a biography about real life wrestler: Andre the Giant.

It is written by Brandon M. Easton with Art from Denis Medri. It was published by IDW in 2015.

The GN does a great job about following Andre from his hometown roots in Paris, France all the way up to his WWF career and beyond. It is a great read with some fantastic art. Here are some examples from the GN:

This is a great read if you are a fan of wrestling because you get some insight to one of the most famous wrestlers of all time, Andre. If you are not a fan of wrestling, it is still a great read because you learn about a man who felt alone in the world due to his freakish height and turned it into a positive, life changing event. It is okay to be different.

Jon and I had a great time with this comic and we hope you get a chance to pick it up.

Your comics pal,

Jim
