Cartoonist Box Brown is working on a graphic novel biography of comedian Andy Kaufman for First Second, according to Playboy. Is This Guy For Real? is scheduled to be released in February 2018, and for Brown it follows a string of non-fiction works such as Andre The Giant: Life and Legend and Tetris: The Games People Play.
“Andy Kaufman has fascinated me for years,” said Brown. “I was too young to remember his runs on David Letterman and Saturday Night Live. But because of Man on the Moon, Comedy Central started re-airing Andy Kaufman’s performances. It was unlike anything I’d ever seen. He was extremely influential in the comedy world, but I think still misunderstood and often emulated with varying results.”
Brown's Is This Guy For Real? is scheduled to be released February 2018.
