Anthony Bourdain wears many hats these days-writer, host of 2 travel shows, and chef-at-large, but the fact that he's been working on a food inspired graphic novel seems like a surprising, and awesome, career choice. Here's how he describes the 160 page graphic novel "Get Jiro!" he's creating with co-writer Joel Rose:
...a gourmet slaughter-fest, sort of like 'Fistful of Dollars' meets 'Eat Drink Man Woman'" and "'Yojimbo' meets 'Big Night' and 'Babette's Feast', an ultra-violent slaughter-fest over culinary arcana
Hilarious, and inventive as usual Mr. Bourdain. I can't wait to read this culinary crossover when it comes out June 2012.
