Brown created a full-length graphic novel about the professional wrestler André the Giant called André the Giant: Life and Legend, for First Second Books, published in May 2014. It debuted as ninth bestseller on the New York Times Bestseller List for Paperback Graphic Books and remained on the list for three weeks.
