really liked it

Box Brown's remarkable manga-influenced sequential art biography of the wrestling legend lies somewhere at the intersection of the graphic novel as pioneered by Art Spiegelman, the confessional comics of Harvey Pekar and the illustrated reportage of Joe Sacco. Okay, that sounds as grandiose as a wrestling promo, but there's truth in it. What we have here is a larger-than-life story that could be told in text alone, but it's a tale that really benefits from being seen sketched out on the page to be believed - even if much of it's a work in the end.
