Who is Box Brown? Well, if you click the link above, you’ll see this:
Box Brown is an Ignatz Award-winning American cartoonist best known for the comic Bellen! and the winner of a Xeric Grant for the comic Love Is a Peculiar Type of Thing. A passionate proponent of the serial comics format, Brown runs the micropress Retrofit, dedicated to supporting independent serial comics’ work. His books include Andre the Giant: Life and Legend. He is also a life-long professional wrestling fan.
Yup… the guy who wrote the first graphic novel biography about Andre the Giant is now writing a history about Tetris, possibly the granddaddy of viral gaming!
Here’s a sample:
I’ve been writing for The Beat since July of 2010.
I’ve been reading comics since 1974, collecting since 1984, and spreading the graphic novel gospel since 1994.
I’m a bookseller, a librarian, an amateur scholar, a cool uncle, and a comics evangelist.
Ask me anything!
